Reducing our Environmental Footprint
Day & Zimmermann has a number of environmental programs and practices in place, and we’re always looking for new ways to make a difference in the world as a responsible corporate citizen. Following
are just a few of the ways we are striving to achieve our Green Initiative goals.

  • Recycling computer equipment through the Dell Asset Recovery & Recycling program, and printer supplies through theXerox Green World Alliance program
  • Reusing and redeploying furniture and surplus industrial goods and equipment across the enterprise
  • Leveraging online systems for communications, reporting and various accounting transactions to reduce paper consumption
  • Upgrading printers and fax machines to smaller, multi-functional, eco-friendly machines and programming defaults for two-sided printing
  • Encouraging teleconferencing and webinars as an alternative to business travel
  • Using recycled content paper certified by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative
  • Replacing disposable pantry items (foam cups, plastic utensils) with biodegradable supplies
