Paragon Communications Escalates Environmental Leadership by Disclosing Plastic Footprint
Telecommunications and Electronics Remanufacturer Partners with the Plastic Disclosure Project and EarthPeople on Corporate Citizenship Initiative
Bolton, MA (PRWEB) December 3rd, 2012
Paragon Communications, Inc., one of the nation’s largest remanufacturers of enterprise and consumer electronics, has partnered with the Plastic Disclosure Project (PDP) to track and improve its plastic waste stream. Building on a foundation of environmental stewardship as a telecommunications and electronics recycler, PARAGON has voluntarily disclosed its plastic waste through the PDP, an annual disclosure process endorsed by the Clinton Global Initiative and other NGOs committed to conservation.
Mismanagement of plastic waste is a growing and serious problem. Approximately 85% of total global plastic used is not recycled. Instead, plastic waste has the potential to stay in the environment for hundreds of years, putting our food chain at risk. Conversely, by treating plastic as a resource, companies can often save or even make money, as well as minimize their environmental impact. The Plastic Disclosure Project engages with companies to help them measure and disclose their plastic usage, offering strategies such as an annual disclosure to prompt management, investors, and customers to consider plastic waste in their decision-making.
