Diebold takes steps on environmental impact
NORTH CANTON, Ohio (4/16/09)--ATM manufacturer Diebold is initiating several efforts to become more environmentally friendly. Diebold has selected its long-time associate, James N. Merrell, to lead its environmental stewardship initiative. “Climate change is very real and natural resources are actively diminishing,” Merrell said. “The time is now to take responsibility for the impact our operations may have on the environment and to serve as active participants in the global recovery effort.” Merrell’s first priority is to establish environmental policies, including developing a performance baseline for resource consumption. He also formed a global advisory board to implement policies, collect data, evaluate performance and share information. Other initiatives Diebold has undertaken:
* Diebold’s Opteva ATMs are among the most energy efficient in the industry, but the company’s engineers continue to work to make them more efficient, Diebold said. * Diebold is participating in the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), a nonprofit organization that facilitates dialogue between institutional investors, purchasing organizations and senior corporate management from large companies. Diebold contributes to CDP’s global gas-emissions database and formuls information to motivate governments and corporates to prevent climate change. * Existing buildings Diebold owns in Northeast Ohio also are being retrofitted for more effective control of HVAC systems for enhanced energy efficiency. * The company also has a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)-certified building. Diebold’s Greensboro, N.C., warehouse was designed for silver certification under the LEED Green Building Rating system. To be LEED-certified, buildings must meet the highest green building and performance measures, and be deemed an environmentally responsible, healthy place to live or work.
