Arpin Group recognised for environmental achievements

Aug 03, 2016
Arpin Group was recognised at the 2016 Environmental Merit Awards ceremony of the US Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) New England regional office in May.

Each year EPA New England recognises individuals and groups in the six New England states who have worked to protect or improve the region's environment in distinct ways. The merit awards, given since 1970, honour individuals and groups who have shown particular ingenuity and commitment in their efforts to protect the environment.  

Peter Arpin, Partner of Arpin Group and President of Arpin Renewable Energy, was present to receive the award on behalf of the company. He has been the guiding force in Arpin Group's commitment to sustainability. Peter is also host of the leading business sustainability network ReNewable Now, which covers ‘the business side of green’ and broadcasts across many mediums.  

Arpin Group’s achievements include becoming the first company in the moving industry to perform the S-CORE Multi-purpose Sustainability Assessment offered by the International Society of Sustainability Professionals and investing in the research and development of solar panels for moving trucks to reduce engine runtime and fuel consumption.   

This year's Environmental Merit Awards programme was dedicated to the historic Paris climate agreement last year at which over 190 nations committed to universally limit global warming.
