We have a set a goal to be Zero Waste at the end of 2023 at our owned facility. During our first full year in the program, we have achieved a 70% landfill diversion rate. We remain committed to maintaining carbon neutrality at our Bakersfield facility. In 2021, we have purchased renewable energy to match 100% of our operational electricity consumption.
We’ve also worked to find innovative ways to reduce our energy use. For example, we use a boiler economizer to consume less gas in our heat generation, and we have installed skylights for natural lighting in the packaging area.
