Ed Farley talks about Unisource's green initiatives

Published on April 18, 2011

Ed Farley, VP of Marketing and Corporate communications at Unisource, kicks off our green week by bringing us up to date on the most recent green initiatives Unisource is working on.

Ed Farley: I’m Ed Farley, Senior Vice-President of Market and Corporate Communications at Unisource. I’d like to bring you up to date on several of the green initiatives we’ve had going this year. One of the most important ones was our sponsorship with WhatTheyThink.com of the Environmental Innovation Awards for this year; they really, really went well. There were five major winners. We also added three new sponsors, which was Heidelberg, NewPage and Neenah Paper. These awards are particularly good because they not only talk about the environmental aspects of the positive points that many of these companies have done but also, some of the social aspects, working with the community. So we’re very proud of being sponsors and working with WhatTheyThink.com and certainly, we’ve already started getting ready for the Awards for next year.

Ed Farley: One of the green initiatives we’ve had is the Supplier Symposium actually put on by Nancy Geisler for Unisource. This is one of the areas where we bring all our vendors in and actually hold a symposium to talk about environmental issues and how we can work together. This last one, the Lacey Act was the major part of the conversation of this symposium. Another area that we work very hard in is building our new web site. We spent an awful lot of time working on building a corporate web site and if you go to the web site, www.unisourcegreen.com, you’ll see a whole new look and it’s very interactive, it’s great. Along with that, we’ve updated our web sites for our paper, packaging, and facilities supplies divisions. Along with all that, we’ve continued to improve our whole road net program with our trucks, which really coordinates all the truck deliveries, saves on a lot of fuel, and really lessons the carbon footprint. We’re working on our buildings to become LEED Certified along with a lot of idle time management with our trucks. So there’s an awful lot going on not only in the sales and marketing end at Unisource but also in the logistics end really to bring us and make us more sustainable and add to our overall green effort.
