Sustainability

Since its founding in 1968, MWS Wire has sought to expand resource conservation, recycling and reuse. In the formative years these efforts included recycling and reuse of spools and packaging, a process that has since been improved and enhanced with current goals to make this business process even more effective in the future. In recent years major projects included installation of high efficiency pollution control equipment, investment in a 155 kW photovoltaic electrical generation plant and replacement of facility lighting with energy efficient lamps, ballasts and sensors.

Environmental Policy

MWS Wire Industries is committed to the highest level of environmental stewardship in our industry through processes that prevent pollution, comply with relevant legislation and regulations; and continuous improvement achieved by meeting challenging environmental objectives and performance targets.

PACKAGING

  • Purchased shipping cartons contain up to 30% recycled material.
  • All paper, cardboard, plastic and metallic waste is reused or recycled.
  • Loose fill packaging material used in the shipping department is non-toxic, biodegradable and readily dissolves in water.
  • Wire spools and reels are reused by MWS or returned to our suppliers for reuse. Our customers are encouraged to join this conservation effort.

    ENERGY CONSUMPTION

  • In May 2012 MWS celebrated five years of clean electrical power produced by a 155 kW photovoltaic solar generating system designed and installed by Sun Integration of Tarzana, California.

  • Through June 2013 more than 1.6 MW-hours of clean power have been generated while avoiding over 1000 tons of GHG emissions that would have been produced by the electric utility.
  • In 2008 lighting throughout the facility was replaced with energy efficient lamps and ballasts. Occupancy sensors further enhanced savings to over 30,000 kW-hours annually.
  • MWS Wire is an EPA Green Power Partner in recognition of its conservation and clean power generation.

    WASTE MANAGEMENT

  • MWS Wire Industries was named a winner in the 2004 Waste Reduction Awards Program (WRAP) sponsored by the California Integrated Waste Management Board – the state's leading authority on recycling and waste reduction.

  • MWS waste management programs recycle more than double the volume disposed as trash and realize significant annual cost savings from recycling and reuse.

    CARBON FOOTPRINT

  • Using the EPA Climate Leaders Guide to Greenhouse Gas Management for Small Business & Low Emitters, 2012 GHG emissions were 104 metric tons, taking into account stationary combustion, HVAC operation, electricity consumption and mobile sources.
  • MWS has established 2012 as a baseline year for gauging future efforts to limit emission of greenhouse gases from business activities.

    ENVIRONMENTAL GOALS

    1 - Spool return and reuse: publicize, promote and track effectiveness of a plan to encourage customers to return wire spools and reels for reuse.
    2 - Work with selected customers to develop multiple use shipping containers to replace single use boxes.
    3 - Internally track effort to reduce carbon emissions in proportion to company revenue, with 2012 as the baseline year.
