our environmental policy
Weber Marketing Group is committed to achieving a real and sustainable positive impact on the earth in the ways we live and work. We believe that it is essential that both as a firm, and as individuals, we operate on a daily basis in an environmentally conscious manner. Our objective is to minimize the impact of our personal and professional activity on the global environment, wherever possible.
We lead by example in our energy sustainability to reduce our impact on the local and global environment. This commitment began with fulfilling our dream to work and live in a LEED Gold building we realized in 2008 (designed by Weber + Thompson Architects). We continually and carefully manage our carbon footprint and environmental impacts in this amazing home we call the Terry + Thomas Building. Our building has won over a dozen national and international awards for sustainability.
We engage sustainable office practices every day, including recycling, utilizing recycled paper and soy inks, with our low-emitting furniture, paints and materials and through the funding of staff mass transit, carpools, light rail alternative transportation to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
