Environmental Commitment

Management and Engineering Services has maintained a registered environmental management system based on the international standard ISO 14001. We have done this since 2001 through annual, internationally accredited registrar conformance audits.

Through our management system we maintain carbon neutral operations at our headquarters facility in Colorado and use wind renewable energy certificates to offset 100% of our purchased electricity. Our corporate headquarters now features advanced lighting technologies including LEDs and T-8s throughout the facility, as well as ENERGY STAR® equipment. We are now using an interactive energy monitoring system to track specific areas of energy use to help target conservation potentials. We have developed and maintain a greenhouse gas emissions inventory in accordance with the international standard ISO 14065-1, and are currently implementing an energy management system based on the new international standard ISO 50001.

Through our waste reduction program we have reduced solid waste by 98% over our 2010 baseline through waste reduction and waste diversion. Through our resource management program we have maximized our use of 100% recycled-content paper and products for office use and client product development. We carefully choose products and vendors based on their sustainable products and programs as partners of Management and Engineering Services.
