Here's more news from the BCCCC member network:

FirstEnergy Corp. plans to donate more than 1,600 trees across its New Jersey service area this year, with approximately 1,200 of those expected to be donated and planted by the end of May. This initiative is an important part of the company's efforts to reduce FirstEnergy's carbon footprint, promote responsible use of natural resources and further the advancement of sustainable practices.

Buckman partnered with Energy Drive on reducing electricity usage and water consumption at Buckman’s Hammarsdale, South Africa, facility. Buckman installed Energy Drive's energy-saving solution to monitor and regulate energy usage. “The low monthly service charge is completely offset by the energy savings we gain from the variable speed drives,” said Mukesh Ramatar, Plant Manager for Buckman South Africa. “But even more important are the positive environmental impacts we’ve seen from the solution – they are the real driver of the value we see.”
