Once a year, on April 22nd, the world celebrates Earth Day. First celebrated nearly 50 years ago, Earth Day is now a worldwide event observed in more than 150 countries each year.
From learning about the environment and recycling to planting trees and supporting environmental conservation initiatives, there are many ways to celebrate Earth Day. At Premiere Transportation, we work hard to do our part to celebrate and appreciate the environment around us not just on Earth Day, but every day.
How do we do so? In honor of Earth Day 2016, here is a glimpse at some of the ways Premiere Transportation helps to conserve the environment on a daily basis.
Premiere Transportation’s Environmental Initiatives
Premiere Transportation occupies two properties on North Pearl Street in Albany, NY. Between both properties, we have over 450 rooftop solar panels. These panels collect sunlight, transforming light energy into energy that we can use to run our facilities. Our choice to utilize solar energy helps our facility to run in an efficient and environmentally friendly way.
Environmentally Friendly Vehicles
As a transportation company, we recognize that the vehicles we drive contribute to the emissions and pollution that enters the environment on a daily basis. Our team has made an effort to reduce the environmental impact of our vehicles in a couple of ways. Firstly, we have invested in a number of vehicles fueled by propane, including buses. Propane is a popular alternative fuel choice as it is cleaner burning than gasoline, offering environmental benefits. Propane-fueled vehicles produce lower amounts of emissions and toxins than traditional gas-powered cars, making them a more environmentally friendly transportation choice.
Secondly, we work hard to keep our fleet of vehicles up to date. Newer sedans, buses, and limousines meet higher standards related to emissions, reducing the amount of pollution that enters the environment when they are driven. By keeping our fleet updated with state of the art vehicles, we are helping to reduce the pollutants that are produced by the cars and buses we operate.
Recycling is one of the easiest ways we can protect and conserve the environment, both as individuals and as organizations. At Premiere, we work hard to do our part to recycle on a daily basis. We have recycling bins throughout the office and all of our employees make it a point to recycle whatever they can.
Happy Earth Day!
At Premiere, we are proud to do our part to conserve the beautiful world we live in on Earth Day and every day! If you are looking for an environmentally conscious transportation company to fulfill your organizational or social transportation needs, please keep us in mind!
