At Unisource, we value sustainability and innovation. We work hard to reduce our own carbon footprint by minimizing our electricity and fuel consumption. At the same time, we help our customers operate in a sustainable manner by offering thousands of green facility supply product alternatives that meet the U.S. Building Council’s LEED® EB:O&M meta standards.
In addition, we rate our suppliers against a sustainability assessment tool to communicate our expectations for environmental responsibility.

On the Road
We optimize our truck routes with on-board computer systems to minimize fuel consumption and lower our emissions footprint. Our nationwide fleet is exclusively diesel-burning and we use RoadNet software to maximize truck capacity. Plus, we have implemented a zero-idle and zero-speeding policy to preserve our planet and save on energy.
We minimize our electricity consumption by placing motion-detector and high-efficiency lights in our warehouses. All of our marketing materials are printed on Chain of Custody certified paper. We also have implemented recycling programs in our offices and warehouses to reduce waste.
