The Orange Revolution is a program that we implemented in 2007 as part of our Environmental Commitment to educate, generate awareness, and motivate behavioral change in our employees and their families. Through this program we recruit volunteers (the Orange Squad) and encourage employees to participate in environmental protection events such as recycling, maintenance of natural spaces and the promotion of mass transit. At our facilities our employees have access to a recycling center for newspapers, magazines and aluminum.
Last year we collected 650,655 pounds of material at our recycling center and operational areas. These materials included paper, plastic, newspapers, magazines, wooden crates and electronic equipment. In addition, we organized an environmental fair, natural reserve tours, tree plantings, beach cleanups, and we participated in Earth Hour.
A group of volunteer employees plan, manage and execute the educational events of the Orange Revolution Program. They make sure that the company provides proper training and operates according to our Environmental Commitment initiative.
