- From Our President & CEO Scott Chatlin
In order to be successful in the area of sustainability, companies must have people who truly believe in sustainability and who offer thought provoking and innovative ideas.
We believe that integrating sustainability into our culture not only positively affects the environment and society, but also adds tremendous value to our business.”
- 2020 Sustainability Highlights
Twin Rivers Technologies has reduced our fuel consumption by 5% since 2017
Since 2017 we have had a 5.2% reduction in GHG emissions
Last year, TRT produced 64% of the energy we used
Water consumption has also been reduced by 6.8% at our Quincy, MA facility since 2017
- Twin Rivers Technologies’ (TRT’s) Diversity and Inclusion program, is a key part of our Sustainability program. Our goal and commitment is to have TRT be a company where all employees are supported professionally in order to succeed and where there are no obstacles based on race, ethnicity, nationality, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, or disability.
- The challenge over the past year came directly to us as the global pandemic spread and our new lives under the COVID-19 response were created. The virus spread led to implementing TRT’s Pandemic Emergency Response Plan and spawned many changes from its original design as our new reality formed. This included new provisions for social distancing; PPE requirements; personal sanitation; area sanitation; emergency disinfection; remote work practices; employee and visitor screening and more ... so much more. In the end, TRT persevered by creating a safe workplace and continuing full operations without interruption.
- Every year that TRT increases the use vegetable oil as a raw material, we believe we offset the emissions equivalent of the same volume of #2 Oil, since alternate raw materials are commonly be used for fuel. This leads to significant and ongoing reductions in Green House Gases, as seen here, but also in other harmful emissions as well.
