Sustainability

Keeping the future in mind

At Wright-Ryan we know that the earth is finite; we have to be intentional in everyday life if we are going to preserve it for future generations. Wright-Ryan has integrated green business practices throughout our construction and operating practices.We have completed a comprehensive review of our business practices and our facilities and have initiated waste reduction, recycling strategies, and energy efficiency upgrades whenever applicable. Our sustainability team has instituted recycling programs that have pushed us to nearly 70% in the office and well over 50% at our job sites and our Millwork facility. We are working hard to move toward a paperless environment and have cut energy use in our facilities by over 10%. We received the Governor’s Award for Carbon Emission Reduction and were one of only four firms in the state to receive the Governor’s Achievement Award for Environmental Excellence.
