Nour USA, Ltd. CEO Mr. A. Huda Farouki Announces Launch of Green Campaign
VIENNA, VA - Nour USA, Ltd. (www.nourusa.com) Today, CEO Mr. A. Huda Farouki announced the launch of company-wide green initiatives designed to increase employee awareness of the importance of resource management and conservation to the company and the environment. In connection with Vornado/Charles E. Smith building management, Nour USA is actively participating in the WorkGreen program designed to reduce energy consumption, lower harmful pollutants and reduce paper and other waste through recycling.
Through a combination of stream-lined operating practices and conservation techniques, Nour USA is contributing to Vornado's efforts to obtain the Energy Star rating of their corporate headquarters. Energy Star is a joint program of the U.S. EPA and the U.S. Department of Energy focused on promoting energy efficient products and practices to reduce overall consumption. Buildings receiving the Energy Star award are among the top 25% of facilities in the country in terms of energy conservation.
"Going green will be more than just a buzzword in our company," stated Mr. Farouki. "We're taking measurable steps to effect change, which will benefit our employees, local community and will have a significantly positive impact on the environment."
The recycling program is a vital part of Nour's green campaign. Reducing paper, metal cans, glass bottles and jars and plastic containers are simple ways to lessen the amount of refuge that goes into landfills, and Nour USA hopes to play a pivotal role in the reduction of waste produced by the building.
"We're encouraging our employees to make these changes both in the office and at home," said Mr. Farouki. "We must all do our part to protect the environment for future generations." Additional acts of simple conservation efforts employees can begin at work and at home include returning wire hangers to dry cleaners, keeping tires at the proper air pressure, which reduces the amount of carbon dioxide emitted by vehicles and switching computer displays to sleep mode after 5 minutes of inactivity.
