Harrison Honored for Environmental Stewardship
Continuing to lead the ecological charge, Harrison Industries is achieving well beyond carbon neutrality in terms of greenhouse gas emissions. According to the latest Climate Registry and Avoided Emissions Reporting, Harrison Industries has fully offset its direct GHG emissions surpassing net zero in emissions by 21 times.
“As you can imagine, any company just trying to get to net zero is hard,” said Bill Camarillo, CEO of Harrison partner Agromin, “but the Harrisons have been able to average, over 10 years, 21 times greater than net zero, which is a tremendous accomplishment.”
It’s a remarkable number but not unexpected. Harrison has a well tracked history of avoided emissions – including a fleet of trucks that run entirely on clean fuel – and of following all the protocol. At Harrison, we see this as our greatest responsibility and our foremost success as a trash/recycle company.
Our diligence has earned us honors from the Climate Registry. Each month, one Registry member is recognized for its commitment to emissions reporting and leadership in taking action on climate change; honored in 2019, Harrison is the only waste hauler to ever be distinguished with this Member of the Month commendation.
Harrison joined The Climate Registry in 2008 – just after the registry was formed – and we’ve remained far ahead of the clean-air curve every year.
About the Climate Registry
The Climate Registry is a nonprofit organization designed and created in 2007 to manage and reduce businesses’ greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Governed by U.S. states and Canadian provinces and territories, the registry operates GHG reporting programs globally and assists organizations in measuring, reporting and verifying the carbon in their operations in order to manage and reduce it. The organization also consults with governments nationally and internationally on all aspects of GHG measurement, reporting and verification.
Among the first companies to join The Climate Registry’s monitoring efforts, Harrison has proactively and voluntarily reported our greenhouse gas emissions through The Climate Registry every year since.
Details on these avoided emissions from recycling, composting and averted landfill use are available in the full report from The Climate Registry, at www.theclimateregistry.org.
