We are excited to welcome three local companies to The Coalition. They join our current business members as sustainability leaders in the community. We look forward to sharing their stories with you!

ATC is finding ways to save $$$ and energy by installing high-output lighting throughout their plant. Next up is an evaluation of the HVAC system for energy and cost savings.

Hertler System’s is getting everyone engaged in the company’s sustainability efforts. They have an employee-led paper recycling effort and they recycle all out-of-service computer hardware. Hertzler is also involved in a tree planting project to offset carbon production.
