Middle Atlantic Awarded GreenCircle Certification
Middle Atlantic Products has attained GreenCircle Certification for Waste Diversion from Landfill for its manufacturing facility in Fairfield, New Jersey. The certification verifies that Middle Atlantic's Fairfield, New Jersey, manufacturing facility diverts 96 percent of non-hazardous and hazardous materials from landfill.
Middle Atlantic stated that sustainability has been a critical focus for the organization since its inception in 1979. It also said that commitment has taken on new meaning as it strides toward zero waste while simultaneously growing and expanding operations.
"Middle Atlantic has a rich history of environmental responsibility, driven by the aggressive sustainability standards we've set for ourselves," Mike Baker, president of Middle Atlantic Products, said in a statement.
"Every employee is committed to continuously improving our sustainability practices as we grow our business to better serve our customers. Managing our manufacturing processes to result in such little waste is an incredible accomplishment, and I'm proud of how hard our team has worked to reach this milestone. We'll keep pushing until we're at completely zero waste."
The ability to divert waste comes from environmentally conscious processes from product inception all the way through delivery. Middle Atlantic has stated it is dedicated to evolving its role as a leading corporate advocate for sustainable business practices and will be launching several more environmental initiatives in the near future.
GreenCircle Certified was established to ensure specificity in third-party certification after many misleading or unsubstantiated sustainability claims were encountered in the green marketplace.
Middle Atlantic Products has been part of the Legrand group since Legrand acquired it in 2011.
