Sustainability Assessments
Under contract with the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE), Plisko Sustainable Solutions, LLC, (PSS) conducted site visits at two facilities to understand the level and type of sustainability programs in place and to recommend pollution prevention, resource conservation, and financial savings opportunities. Here is a glimpse of the two companies we visited. Please reach out to Joan if you are interested in having a sustainability assessment at your facility. For more info, click HERE .

Are You Climate Positive?

Ikea , the world's largest furniture retailer has revealed that 70% of the materials used to make its products during 2018 were either renewable or recycled, as it strives to reach the 100% mark by 2030. Ikea's 'People and Planet Positive' strategy includes a 2020 target of becoming climate positive -- producing more renewable power than it uses.

Here are some sustainability terms that help put this concept into perspective:

  • Carbon neutral means that an activity releases net zero carbon emissions into the atmosphere.
  • Climate positive means that an activity goes beyond achieving net zero carbon emissions to actually create an environmental benefit by removing additional carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
  • Carbon negative means the same thing as “climate positive.”
