Da-Lite Joins Indiana Partners for Pollution Prevention
WARSAW, IN – June 19, 2013 – Indiana’s Partners for Pollution Prevention (Partners) welcomed Da-Lite among four new members to the program during the organization’s quarterly meeting in June. The four businesses join 67 other Indiana facilities and companies that have joined Partners by pledging to implement pollution prevention in their operations and activities.
“Da-Lite has been incorporating the latest environmentally sound practices for years, including our ISO 14001:2004 Certification, our work with GREENGUARD, and our membership with the U.S. Green Building Council,” said Mike Evans, Senior Vice President of U.S. Manufacturing. “Joining Indiana’s Partner’s for Pollution Prevention will allow Da-Lite to continue to be aware of new ways to remain environmentally sustainable.”
The Partners organization began in 1998 and is comprised of Indiana industries, businesses, nonprofit organizations and governmental entities that are interested in pollution prevention and the financial and environmental benefits pollution prevention projects can bring. The Indiana Department of Environmental Management’s (IDEM’s) Office of Pollution Prevention and Technical Assistance works closely with the Partners by coordinating the program and promoting and encouraging networking opportunities, voluntary pollution prevention activities, and participation in state recognition programs.
“Companies that implement pollution prevention measures often save money because efficiency is gained in their manufacturing processes, raw materials are saved, and less waste is generated,” said Rick Bossingham, assistant commissioner for the Office of Compliance Support at the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM). “Companies that take the Partners’ pledge promote environmental stewardship in a number of ways by involving their employees in company projects, taking part in community activities, and networking with other businesses.”
