Employee Commute
Description of Action: 
Advanced Solar Products, Inc. allows its employees to work from home occasionally keeping a few cars off the road for the day. Many employees live over an hour away making this option inherently beneficial to the environment. Staff and technicians also car pool to job sites to help reduce emissions.
Green Building Other
Description of Action: 
Advanced Solar Products, Inc. has an office that offers abundant natural light on most floors and work areas. This reduces the need for artificial lighting and aids in energy conservation. The office also uses LED lights in most areas and employees are very conscious of turning lights off when they leave a space. Our office also uses a geothermal system for heating and air conditioning, helping to reduce energy consumption and related emissions.
Environmental Success
Description of Action: 
Based on the formula presented in the link below, Advanced Solar Products has a yearly average of 85,715,000 lb. of CO2 emissions offset per year (@ 55 MW currently installed). That's 163.08 lbs. every minute. Link: http://newenglandcleanenergy.com/energymiser/2015/09/24/tree-math-2-solar-vs-trees-whats-the-carbon-trade-off/
Waste Recycling
Description of Action: 
ASP has implemented an office-wide recycling plan. We recycle plastic, paper, as well as other office supplies and consumables. Our plan for the future is to better educate others in the office of ways to recycle here as well as at home.
Waste Reduction
Description of Action: 
Advanced Solar Products, Inc. supplies company laptops to all employees. This reduces the need for meeting handouts and other mass printings effectively saving paper. In addition, the company has a healthy ink and electronic recycling program. In addition. A few years ago, Advanced Solar Products, Inc. employees were requested by management to bring in their own coffee mugs to reduce the need for disposable cups. Today, just about every employee participates reducing the amount of cups purchased by half.
