Leading Recruitment Process Outsourcer obtains certification from one of the nation’s most prestigious environmental programs.
Larkspur, Calif. – Oct. 22, 2008 – Accolo Inc., a leader in Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) for small and mid-sized companies, has been acknowledged as an environmental leader by one of the most stringent and respected environmental performance programs in the country. The Bay Area Green Business Program was developed by local governments in the San Francisco Bay Area to help local businesses conserve resources, prevent pollution and minimize waste. With its new green business certification, Accolo encourages other organizations to take action and be environmentally conscience in the workplace: “Though Accolo isn’t in an industry directly focused on the environment, we feel deeply that being environmentally conscious and responsible is important for our business,” said John Younger, CEO, Accolo Inc. “The Bay Area Green Business Program is one of the most forward thinking and prestigious environmental business programs in the nation. We hope our certification and our effort to lead by example will influence other organizations to incorporate environmentally-friendly projects into their businesses as well.”
To attain the prestigious Bay Area Green Business certification, Accolo has developed and implemented a thorough environmentally-friendly program. The leading RPO company encourages other organizations to consider similar environment-friendly tactics that it has implemented, including:
- Creating and adhering to a company environmental vision statement
- Making reducing, reusing and recycling convenient for all staff
- Conserving energy through limiting unnecessary use of lights, using compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) and using certified Energy Star electronic equipment
- Providing transportation incentives to their employees
The Bay Area Green Business Program verifies that businesses meet a stringent set of environmental performance standards. The partnership of government agencies and utilities helps local businesses comply with all environmental regulations and take actions to conserve resources, prevent pollution and minimize waste. The Association of Bay Area Governments coordinates the program, which is implemented by Green Business Coordinators in nine participating counties.
