MHBI Sustainability Commitment
MHBI as a local business is dedicated to reducing our carbon footprint and our human footprint throughout our business in any way we can. How much can a small business do to reduce or eliminate actions and activities which negatively impact the environment around us and the Earth as a whole, you ask? We're acting as much as we can in the following ways.
Reduced Travel - Almost all of our work requires at least one visit to a job site. However, we're providing more of our service answering questions and providing knowledge and guidance to people who call or email us, rather than making an initial evaluation visit. Many questions and concerns can be answered with a bit of Q&A or having the client provide some pictures for our review.
Reduced Petroleum Usage - As much as we can, were visiting job sites using a lightweight electric vehicle (EV).
Minimal use of Paper - All of our forms and reports are digitized as PDFs. Only our contracts and agreements, which require signatures, are initially printed, before being scanned into a PDF.
Office Equipment - All office equipment which has a sleep mode is set to power down or off after a period of non-use. All lighting is equipped with motion or time sensors.
Recycling & Reuse - We strive to use as little plastic as possible, and select office supplies which have minimal or no plastic wrap or packaging. We recycle and E-cycle everything possible, leaving a minimal impact of trash. We purchase used office and electronic equipment whenever possible.
Community Service & Engagement - We strive to make our local community a better place to live, by 1) being involved in local environmental groups, and 2) providing roadside cleanup in the Adopt-A-Road program.
