Environmental, Social and Governance
We have faced an unprecedented worldwide pandemic. Hazmat companies and our employees have stepped into this biological danger with steadfast determination and safety we bring to all difficult challenges and successfully executed safe decontamination of public spaces, work environments, manufacturing centers and port operations to bring confidence back to U.S. economy. We are active in decontamination efforts and still the primary COVID response contractors for the City and County of San Francisco California, along with numerous municipalities in the Bay area, the Los Angeles metroplex and beyond. We are on the ground protecting when called to keep the American people safe and commerce flowing. I want to thank each one of our employees for their part, individual sacrifice, hard work and long hours they have put into this effort. They have put themselves in harm’s way for the greater good, and this has not gone unnoticed by all our support and management team members.
2020 have been a year of growth and opportunity for the Hazmat family. We have developed new technologies that will bring each of our facilities into true Carbon Neutral with the introduction of our Aerosol Conversion Systems being permitted and installed at our locations. These systems will provide electrical power to our locations through reclamation of fuels from Aerosol and Propane cylinders during conversion process through power from gas turbines. The excess power is currently in negotiation to be returned to the power grids in their respective states. We will not only eliminate our Energy Usage, but we will soon become, Energy Positive Producers.
In 2020 We have begun to give back to mother nature the very life that feeds all of us and sustain the ecological circle of life, fresh water. You will hear a lot about large corporations discussing how much water they have reduced in usage, let us talk about capturing hydrocarbons and water others have dismissed as waste. These are water sources typically mixed with oils, coolants, paints, captured in construction materials and construction projects, locked in one form or another and discarded as waste, well not anymore. Now we are taking this waste and creating potable water at the capacity of 40 million gallons a year.
2020 has taught us that corporations and small businesses need to be more efficient in their recycling efforts. All of us must do our part to protect and sustain the resources we have. While we have had “MailBack” Recycling program for nearly a decade, we have fully embraced the marketing of the program under ESG in the last year. Companies have packages delivered to their locations daily, those delivery trucks should be the carrier transporting recycled material back through the mail stream to one our package management locations. Each returned box is tracked -rigor to arrival, processed upon delivery and a certificate of recycling is produced to the shipping company, so they know their efforts in protecting the environment has been fully accounted for and their confidence in their Hazmat partners strengthens with each delivery.
Hazmat is dedicated to improving the wellbeing of our Employees lives both at work and at play. We are committed to social causes throughout the company. We continue our lifetime support of the Fuel Relief Fund whose mission is to go anywhere in the World when needed to help those that need energy the most. Hazmat is committed to being on the ground for responses to Wildfires and Hurricanes when called. We will continue to offer training for our employees and in 2021 will begin offering Train the Trainer programs to empower employees to become Hazmat instructors. All employees that desire to do so, can become instructors in fields of their choosing. Growth is never top down, but from all level branching outward.
In closing, I would like to thank all our exceptional staff. Hazmat family of companies employs unique, dedicated, determined experts in numerous disciplines who never backdown from challenges, are the first in and last to leave when difficult situations arise.
Thank you and God Bless,
