Telgian is an environmentally conservative company. Each office takes measures to minimize our impact on the environment including, but not limited to, paper recycling systems and energy reduction practices. Telgian’s primary energy and environmental impact is due to deployment of field inspectors and sub-contractors. In 2009, we reduced paper consumption and shipping usage by moving to an electronic delivery and review system and employee and sub-contractor travel by implementing ‘hub’ scheduling and expanding inspector’s base areas. These efforts resulted in a $38,000 reduction in printing costs, $31,000 in shipping costs and approximately $1 million in travel costs.
Telgian recognizes the necessity of giving back to the global community and takes measures to preserve the environment for future generations. Senior partners are actively engaged in activities for economic advancement through the development of sustainable food supplies in developing countries in Africa and Latin America. Telgian encourages company-wide participation in these activities.
Telgian has developed online resources to encourage employee telecommuting, to significantly reduce paper consumption, and to improve efficiency company-wide. We ask our offices to use recycled materials when possible, and encourage our associates to practice resource and energy reduction and recycling policies in all offices and in their own homes.
