Chapter 5 All-Weather Case: Composing, Revising, Editing, and Proofreading an Environmental Accountability Statement

Doug has asked Caleb to draft All-Weather’s environmental accountability statement. After the statement is approved by Doug, it will be vetted by both marketing and manufacturing before being signed by the company’s president. Caleb has been typing notes that will go into the drafting of the statement.

Right now, his notes read as follows: All-Weather is committed to protecting the environment for the benefit of future generations in all its activities. We use re-cycled raw materials in our manufacturing processes and operations, 30% in case of wood fiber windows and doors and 20% in vinyl windows and doors. We’ve limited our green-house gas emissions by locating our plants closer to markets where our products are sold so we don’t have to transport our finished products to far-off markets which means lower costs and fuel consumption for transportation and lower greenhouse gases for the environment. Our doors and windows have received Energy Star certification. Some of the ways in which our doors and windows save energy consumption include, but are not limited to: using low-E glass (energy efficient glazing) for window and door panes, using multiple panes in windows and doors, using gases like argon and krypton between window panes for better insulation, improved weatherstripping in doors. Our products can help builders and architects score points in the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification process. Our products have also received better ratings for energy savings by the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC). We have reduced energy consumption in our plants and offices by 30% in the last five years. This has been achieved due to both lean manufacturing processes as well as use of energy-efficient products, including light bulbs for example, throughout the company. We bye more than 90% of our wood from forests that are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). We also adhere to ISO 14001 in our manufacturing with its requirement of regular environmental audits (once every month).
