We want to do more in this blog post than rattle off facts about DIRTT Environmental Solutions that you could simply find on DIRTT.net. We want to do more than talk in depth about the amount of recyclable DIRTT furniture or how DIRTT modular walls and DIRTT wall systems decrease construction time. Today, we want to tell you about what goes on at DIRTT behind closed doors.
Just as with our last post on DIRTT, taking a step back from the big picture to see what’s going on behind the scenes can be much more valuable. So, instead of going into detail about DIRTT environmental solutions from a macro level, sometimes it’s the small details that earn the greatest respect.
“We put ‘Environmental’ in our own name, so we better live up to it.”
DIRTT’s culture is built on this saying. As opposed to factories that toot the “environmentally friendly” horn, where the employee culture is often disengaged from the company’s mission, DIRTT strives to be different.
Instead of building brand new factories, every single DIRTT factory is in reused buildings to lessen the environmental damage caused by new construction. Within these buildings, bathrooms use hand dryers and sensor lighting to reduce energy consumption. DIRTT’s marketing departments are 100% digital, meaning there’s practically no printing and little paper waste.
Even outside of work, DIRTT encourages eco-friendly choices. The company offer monthly incentives to employees who purchase Smart Cars, participate in carpools, and ride their bikes to work. In the Calgary office, a free shuttle to work is offered in an effort to help reduce CO2 emissions.
If you want to learn more on the overall vision of DIRTT Environmental Solutions, have at it. Their big plan is pretty impressive!
You could say in all ways (in and out of the public spotlight), DIRTT walks the walk and talks the talk. DIRTT is leaving a cleaner and sustainable footprint – an approach other companies should undoubtedly start following.
