Almo Corporation is committed to responsible environmental stewardship and sustainable business practices.
While there is much more that will be needed to be done, Almo is actively working to reduce our overall carbon footprint and to create a sustainable
business model that minimizes our impact on the environment.
Since 2019, Almo has completed three roof-based renewable energy systems which consist of more than 3,750 solar panels on three properties.
We now have 740,000 sq.ft. of warehousing space that run completely on solar energy.
Our solar-panel systems produce a combined total of 1.5 million kW-h annually, fulfilling 100% of the electricity needs for three of our buildings. These solar panels greatly reduce our dependence on grid-generated, non-renewable electricity for many years to come and eliminate 1,100 tons of CO2 emissions annually.
To hear more about Almo's decision to invest in solar energy, watch the following video of Ed Gibbons, Executive Vice President, and Warren Chaiken, CEO, talk about Almo's solar investment.
Today, all Almo warehouses utilize motion-sensing lighting which can cut in half the electricity used in our distribution facilities.
All of our offices use similar technology. Additionally, we are in the process of improving the energy efficiency of our lighting by another
15%-25% by replacing all fixtures with LED technology.
We are in the process of converting our fleet of more than 125 forklifts from liquid propane engines to highly-efficient, battery-operated forklifts.
Our new “Eco-Performance” lift trucks produce an amazing 80% less CO2 emissions than our current forklifts and operate 17% more efficiently
than standard electric lift trucks.
