Environmental Sustainability Policy
American National Skyline, Inc.
ANSI will participate in a program to recycle paper, cardboard, plastic and aluminum products that we dispose of on a daily basis. The purchase of recyclable office supplies and window washing supplies and equipment will be given priority. At our company owned properties energy control measures are implemented for heating, cooling and lighting. At leased properties our landlords are encouraged to participate in providing such measures.
The storage of chemicals will follow the manufacturer's recommended procedures and steps will be taken to contain and properly clean any chemical leaks or spills. Partially used chemical containers for singular use will be properly disposed of following the completion of the job for which they were intended. Disposal of all empty or no longer used chemical containers will follow manufacturer's recommendations or local regulations.
As primarily a window washing company we realize that water usage is a necessary component to complete our work. Our work may create opportunities for water to be absorbed through the ground or entered into the drainage system. It is our intent to use products or processes with chemicals that provide minimal if any, environmental impact to the surrounding area. Alternative cleaning methods which use soft water only shall be used whenever feasible.
In cases where less friendly chemicals are used, reclamation and cleanup procedures established by the manufacturer or local regulations will be followed. Use of these types of chemicals will be documented with information on the location and the type and amount of chemical used. In addition we will strive to substitute more environmentally friendly products when available.
ANSI will create an annual report each January which will document the progress to meeting the above goals and affirming new goals and/or reaffirming the previous year's goals.
