How Hunter Communications is a Business Leader in Sustainable Practices

Here’s a quick snapshot to illustrate Hunter Communication’s dedication to sustainable practices throughout our business operations.

ESG and Environmental Impact

Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) considerations are at the forefront of our business strategy. We understand the importance of minimizing our environmental footprint while maximizing positive social impact. One of the key pillars of our ESG commitment is reducing our environmental impact through innovative initiatives.

The environmental aspect examines how a company interacts with the environment. This includes the company’s policies on climate change, such as efforts to reduce carbon emissions and mitigate climate impact. It also looks at resource management, assessing the efficient use and conservation of resources like water and energy. Pollution and waste management are considered, focusing on measures to minimize pollution and manage waste effectively. Additionally, the impact on biodiversity and land use practices is scrutinized to ensure sustainable interaction with ecosystems.

Companies that score well on ESG criteria are considered more sustainable and socially responsible. Investors increasingly use ESG criteria to assess potential investments, believing that companies adhering to these principles are more likely to perform better in the long term, both financially and ethically. This focus on ESG has been growing due to increased awareness of environmental issues, social justice movements, and demands for greater corporate transparency and accountability.

Recycling Programs and Waste Reduction

In 2023, Hunter Communications implemented comprehensive recycling programs across our three facilities in Oregon. Through these initiatives, we were able to divert an impressive 6.4 metric tons of waste from landfills. By prioritizing recycling and waste reduction, we are actively contributing to the preservation of our planet’s precious resources.

Energy Efficiency Upgrades

As part of our ongoing efforts to enhance sustainability, we recently upgraded the lighting systems at our Central Point facility to energy-efficient LED fixtures. These upgrades not only reduce our energy consumption but also lower our carbon footprint. We are currently evaluating similar upgrades for our other facilities to further minimize our environmental impact.

Hunter Communications is proud to operate a fleet that includes two hybrid vehicles, reducing emissions and promoting cleaner transportation alternatives. Additionally, we support a work-from-home option for eligible positions, reducing the number of cars on the road and decreasing overall emissions. By embracing remote work opportunities, we are fostering a culture of sustainability while promoting work-life balance for our employees.

Looking Ahead: A Greener Future

As we continue to grow and evolve, implementing sustainable practices will remain a core focus for Hunter Communications. We are committed to exploring new ways to minimize our environmental impact, from investing in renewable energy sources to further reducing waste across our operations. By prioritizing sustainability, we not only benefit the planet but also contribute to the well-being of our communities and future generations.
