Arpin Group Is A 2016 EPA Environmental Merit Award Winner!
We’re pleased to announce that on May 10, 2016, The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) awarded Arpin Group with the Environmental Merit Award under the category “Business, Industry, Trade, or Professional”! Peter Arpin, Executive Vice President, proudly accepted the award on Arpin’s behalf.
Arpin Group edged out the competition due to a variety of reasons on the topic of green and sustainable practices. During the announcement, Rob Guillemin of the EPA, praised Arpin for being the first moving company to perform the International Society of Sustainability Professional’s (ISSP) S-SCORE Sustainability Assessment. The Arpin Sustainability Committee was also mentioned for their positive contributions to the company.
What does the future hold for Arpin when it comes to sustainable practices? Arpin is currently planning to install a 1.5MW wind turbine and a second major solar array at its corporate headquarters in an effort to become a net-zero energy consumer. It will take a lot of work, but we’re excited for the results.
Thank you to the EPA for acknowledging our efforts in making this world a greener place and what better time to be recognized than during National Moving Month!
