Green Initiative

Environment

AER believes in making a difference. Preserving our environment by contributing less waste not only benefits the community, it allows AER to be part of a global effort that is shaping the lives of generations to come.

There are countless ways in which every individual can have a positive effect on the environment and each step, big or small, can have lasting results. AER strives to place environmental responsibility at the top of the list when considering new capitol investments, facility improvements as well as process changes.

Examples include:

Remanufacturing

Remanufacturing is recognized as the highest form of recycling because like-new products are produced while minimizing the impact on the environment.

AER Technologies, Inc. (AER) is committed to reduce our environmental impact and continually improve our environmental performance in our operations, products, and services to meet the following environmental program goals and objectives:

  • Reduce, reuse and recycle
  • Ensure compliance with all applicable legal and other requirements
  • Manage and communicate our environmental management system effectively
  • Achieve continual improvement by setting and reviewing objectives and targets
  • Negate harmful activities to prevent pollution to our air, water and land

Warehouse

AER utilizes a wireless inventory pick system to pull orders. This system allows a paperless exchange to take place from when an order is taken to the moment it is ready to ship. AER is also introducing new highly efficient electric lifts in our warehouse operations while progressively replacing propane-driven forklifts. This initiative has proven to significantly reduce carbon emissions.

Logistics

AER’s has chosen a delivery fleet consisting of smaller more flexible vehicles which achieve 32 highway miles per gallon and 22-city mpg on average. This fleet replaced standard small and midsize trucks that consistently consumed more than twice the fuel.

Recycling

Employee and departmental recycling programs promote environmental-awareness within AER’s culture and ultimately benefits the entire organization and surrounding communities. These programs increase employee awareness and participation as well as result in additional income used to facilitate employee reward programs.

With an uncertain future for our environment on the horizon, one thing is for certain: with every small effort made on behalf of the organization to help our environment and the help of all surrounding communities, we truly can make a difference.
