AB&I Foundry, an Oakland-based company that manufactures cast iron pipe and fittings for the plumbing industry, has joined the REV Net Business Sustainability Group, part of the flagship Sustainability Circle program.
The REV Net Sustainability Circle program will help AB&I adopt sustainability practices, including behavioral changes in a proven peer-learning model, which are intended to accelerate business impact. The REV Net program will enhance existing initiatives while identifying new ways AB&I can reduce and recycle by-products in the manufacturing processes.
“As part of this group AB&I will create a five-year sustainability action plan where key initiatives are identified ultimately driving efficiencies all while fostering a green culture within the company,” said Mike Olvera, environmental and sustainability manager of AB&I Foundry. "AB&I is environmentally conscience. Our products are made from 100 percent post-consumer scrap metal and they're 100 percent recyclable at the end of their service life."
Benefits to being part of this program include: immediate and long-term efficiencies, new insights and ideas on how to be innovative, improved team member engagement and the adoption of a comprehensive sustainability plan.
