New Program Grows Green Initiative

The Wallick Companies is expanding its “green” initiative with the creation of its Evergreen Materials™ program. Evergreen Materials™ creates a formal process for determining product standards and green buying requirements, also called Environmentally Preferable Purchasing (EPP).

In addition to reducing negative impacts on the environment, the program will also increase Wallick’s buying power. For example, instead of various communities specifying various toilets or appliances, there will be one set of specifications for each item, all of them green — environmentally friendly.

Examples of materials to be sourced through the Evergreen Materials™ program include:
• Plumbing
• Flooring
• Paint
• Cabinets and countertops
• Appliances
• Lighting
• Windows
• Doors
• Shingles

Other materials will be added as more “green” products and services are identified, and as future innovations occur.

“We see the addition of Evergreen Materials™ as a natural extension of our work to be responsible ambassadors to our industry and our environment. Additionally, common specifications will add significant value from an economic and human resource perspective,” said Wallick CEO Tom Feusse. “It will make maintaining inventory and staff training more efficient and create economies of scale for purchasing.”

The creation of Evergreen Materials™ is one of Wallick’s nine key business priorities for 2010.
