Earth Day 2010: Don’t Forget the Four “R’s” April 22, 2010

Posted by telmarnetworks in : Repair, Telecom Network Support, Uncategorized , trackback

Today is Earth Day. Everyone– from global corporations to individuals – should look around their home, offices and facilities and figure out how each one of us as a person or company can be even more environmentally friendly and responsible.

Believe it or not, when you think about environmental issues there are four “R’s” that you should remember when planning your program:
• Reuse
Recycle
Repair
• Reduce

Telmar uses the four “R’s” every day at our facilities, during production and as part of our global customer solutions. We’re committed to protecting the environment by reducing our carbon footprint in at all of our facilities around the world. When we finished out our corporate headquarters in Plano, Texas we reused materials from the original facility. We also encourage our employees to recycle equipment, furniture and other materials used at our facilities.

But we go beyond that. All repairs at our facilities are done at RoHS-compliant repair stations. Any products brought in for repair that are faulty are cataloged as scrapped materials before being returned to the customer, or destroyed on site.

Our customers can meet their initiatives to be more environmentally responsible through Telmar’s products and services. Service providers, OEMs and enterprises can extend the useful life of their network through repair of equipment or by purchasing our remanufactured or Certified Pre-Owned products.

We also help customers reduce their carbon footprint through:
• Telmar’s proprietary software for disposition of materials at customer site
Spare parts depots located strategically around the world
• Reduced transportation costs and time delays through local repair and logistics services

Even though Telmar is environmentally responsible, to ensure we are always compliant we’ve built in environmental initiatives into our Quality Management Systems.
