Creating a Cleaner, Greener Fleet
| East Windsor, CT: Orion Protective Services, Inc. today announced the purchase of a hybrid company vehicle, the first in a plan which includes converting their entire fleet of 17 Orion vehicles from gasoline-powered to hybrid. This milestone is a major move for Orion Protective Services in its mission to bring about positive change to the environment as well as set the stage for the next generation to inherit a greener world.
“We understand that we have an opportunity and a responsibility to help our world become a better place. Just as we protect our customers’ valuable assets, we are committed to protecting our natural resources and preserving the health of our planet,” said Ed Ramsdell, President and CEO of Orion Protective Services. “With every hybrid vehicle we add to our fleet, we take one more step towards reducing reliance on fossil fuels and lowering carbon emissions in the atmosphere,” he said.
The decision to transition the fleet to electric vehicles not only provides environmental advantages but also presents an opportunity for the company to make an impact on the U.S. economy. “Choosing American-made cars is one of the biggest ways we can contribute to supporting American jobs,” Ramsdell stated. “We wanted to make building a fleet of hybrid vehicles a key part of our overall process of making choices and taking actions that bring about positive change,” he said.
This news comes in the wake of other recent initiatives and accomplishments of the company, including:
- Advocating for and taking steps to create a paperless work environment, such as using electronic forms, signatures, and timesheets
- Conducting routine meetings virtually
- Creating a system for Security Officers to report their rounds telephonically
- Building a remotely accessible scheduling system which tracks the time worked by each employee and is audited and approved by management weekly
“As an environmentally responsible firm, each effort we put forth individually adds up and collectively we can help turn the tide of global warming,” Ramsdell said.
