Linetec honored with Wisconsin Corporate Citizenship Award

Linetec has earned the 2012 Wisconsin Corporate Citizenship Award in the “Environment” category. It was one of only five in the state to win in a Corporate Citizenship Award and the only company honored in this category for “positive programs in place such as pollution reduction, recycling, and energy-saving measures.”

Linetec was recognized for our industry-leading energy conservation. The company participates in peak energy management programs offered by Wisconsin Public Service and leverages a formal Energy Management Team to identify energy savings. Linetec also relies on a volunteer employee “Green Team,” empowered to identify future waste reduction/recycling opportunities.

“We measure progress on all of our environmental efforts through carbon footprint tracking. We already have surpassed our goals for 2012, including green house gas reduction of 15%, solid waste reduction of 10% and water use reduction of 5%,” says Rick Marshall, Linetec’s president. “Environmental leadership and sustainability is no longer just a way to do good, but a good way to do business. It has enabled us to manage in a resource-challenged world and remain cost-competitive. It’s an integral part of our strategy and culture.”
