Over the past several years, Crestron has undertaken a commitment to integrate sustainable development and environmental stewardship in all business processes, procedures and practices. One of those initiatives is a partnership with a software company that delivers consultancy services to measure the organization’s corporate carbon footprint by analyzing how the company impacts global climate change. Crestron also has a long history of supporting product cycle longevity through extensive quality testing, sustaining engineering processes and post-sales support resources to reduce the need to manufacture replacements.

“As an organization, we have been making strides to use eco-friendly packaging materials, minimize plastic use, and ensure product lifecycle longevity,” says Brad Hintze, EVP of global marketing at Crestron. “Crestron is only one piece of the puzzle, and partnering with SAVe empowers us as an organization to support these important educational tracks and advocacy initiatives that support sustainability on an even greater scale.”
