Belacon Goes Green

The BelaGreen Program

We at Belacon noticed that during normal operations our warehouses would often collect significant amounts of recyclable plastics and these plastics were often difficult to dispose of in a cost effective manner, this lead to the creation of the BelaGreen Program in August, 2010. Belagreen meets the challenges of sustainability by recycling abandoned, discarded plastics that would otherwise be discarded.

Today, with companies seeking green and/or sustainability type initiatives, there are tremendous opportunities to implement waste stream optimization strategies in their supply chain, field, and corporate front office (plastic and paper recycle bins) as well as back office (Warehouse / distribution) operations. Companies like Sustainability Recycling Co. (www.sustainabilityrecycling.com), provide sustainable solutions that can help companies identify, benchmark, and implement the ‘perfect local solutions’ that can be scaled on a regional and national basis.

National Forest Foundation Partnership

Belacon has partnered with the National Forest Foundation to plant 2,000 trees throughout the following year in regeneration projects where it has been determined to have the most ecological need. Belacon is built on sustainability and committed to protecting the environment; we have worked hard to partner with others that support green initiatives such as ourselves.

SmartWay Partnership

The SmartWay Transport Partnership is a voluntary public-private initiative designed to improve the environmental performance of the freight delivery system in the United States through money saving, market-based approaches. Through this voluntary partnership, EPA and its partners expect to eliminate 33 to 66 million metric tons of CO2 emissions and up to 200,000 tons of NOx emissions per year by 2012. This represents savings of as much as 150 million barrels of oil per year — equivalent to taking about 12 million cars off the road. Working together, SmartWay Transport Partners can incorporate various strategies and technologies to achieve these goals.

Belacon has achieved a rank of 1.25 which is the highest ranking the EPA offers for Smartway Transport Partners.
