At Enevo, we take trash to heart. We also take action. Our line of work requires us to care about the environment and strive to make it better for all.
Last week, Enevo and other members of the Climate Action Business Association (CABA) took part in CABA’s Business Day of Action at the Massachusetts State House.
Together, they met with legislators and staffers to express our support for carbon pricing legislation, specifically promoting bills HD.2370, sponsored by Representative Jennifer Benson, and SD.1817, sponsored by Senator Michael Barrett. This is a historic moment, Massachusetts (where Enevo is headquartered) can be the first state to put a price on carbon.
You can read more about these bills here.
Both bills would levy a fee on carbon pollution on all sectors of the economy except for agriculture and electricity, which is already covered under the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI).
Clean air is a priority for Enevo – it’s one of the reasons we developed and deployed our dynamic routing system. Our technology allows us to collect the highest number of dumpsters while driving the fewest number of miles, only charging our customers for the collections they need. This keeps our carbon footprint as small as possible, creating green, cost-friendly options and services for our customers.
Wherever you stand on the political spectrum, we operate our business on principals we can all agree on:
- Reducing land fill waste
- Reducing air and noise pollution
- Empowering small businesses
- Reducing operation costs for business owners
And we hope to make that the norm for businesses around us.
