Guilford Of Maine Cites Environmental Improvements

During the first quarter of 2001, more than 75 percent of raw materials were made from recycled or renewable resources at facilities owned by Guilford of Maine, Guilford, Maine. Just five years ago, recycled and renewable materials made up less than 1 percent of the companys purchases.Reducing our environmental footprint means taking both small steps everyday in our traditional way of doing business and large leaps in product and process innovation. We are pleased that we started the year with significant, demonstrated progress on both fronts, said Paul Paydos, vice president, technical services.Guilford also achieved the lowest water usage per unit of production and the lowest first-quarter energy usage per unit of production since the company began to measure the environmental impact of its material, energy and waste streams in 1996.
