Join us in magnifying environmental conservation
Big Rig Wraps became a sustainability champion by carefully planning and executing how we choose, use and consume resources for every aspect of our business. This meant building our sustainability efforts into the fabric of our every-day operations. It wasn’t that difficult. It required thinking differently and working with our partners to leverage how we can make a better environmental impact – together.
You can become a sustainability champion too by:
• Going beyond a 3R (reduce, reuse, recycle) plan.
• Not settling for a few significant initiatives.
• Embracing sustainable practices because it’s the smart and right thing to do, not for any PR value.
• Partnering with your vendors, suppliers and customers to magnify conservation.
• Working together to prepare for a better today, and improved results in five, 10 and 20 years.
Are you sustainable? How do you rate for conservation practices?
When Big Rig Wraps joined the Green Business Bureau we quickly recognized our strengths and weaknesses. Working alongside the environmental experts at the Green Business Bureau, we are following a strategic path through their program of initiatives specifically targeted to yield the highest impact.
Want to adopt some of our guiding principles? Or look at our sustainability process while creating your own? We are happy to share.
Big Rig Wraps Sustainability Blueprint Creates Big Impacts
In a few short years, efforts and initiatives at Big Rig Wraps have prompted:
- multiple fleet companies in Canada and the U.S. to stay in operation.
- many fleet companies to access government incentive plans to upgrade equipment and transport trucks. (note: most government incentives require a significant owner investment or matching funds. With new equipment regulations and the increasing costs of fuel, many operators didn’t have the disposable cash…until Big Rig Wraps).
- fleet expansion.
- upgrading equipment to reduce fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions. At minimum, 500lbs of CO2 is released per truck per year and that means at least a 4 per cent fuel savings per truck per year. Some studies show a fuel savings of more than $2,600 per year per truck.
- increasing maintenance and the installation of eco-friendly equipment, which reduces landfill items by minimizing strain on engines and other parts by an estimated 80 hours per truck/year.
- each fleet partner adopts a zero-waste policy and follow the 3Rs.
- reducing the use of paper by 90 per cent and minimizing use of plastics, energy, and water at all three Big Rig Wraps locations.
