NewAge Industries AdvantaPure® Publishes "Building a Sustainable Future"
New Report Explains the Many Steps Taken to Support Sustainability

Southampton, PA — Plastic tubing manufacturer NewAge Industries has released its first sustainability report titled "Building a Sustainable Future." The publication describes the company's ideas, actions and commitment to implementing a sustainability plan and maintaining a green manufacturing facility.

Ken Baker, CEO, stated "Although this is NewAge's initial sustainability report, we've always been a forward-thinking company concerned with the impact we make as a business and a member of the community. We've taken many critical steps, including the adoption of solar power, to demonstrate that concern, and this report helps readers understand the impact."

Broken into several sections, "Building a Sustainable Future" covers all of NewAge's sustainability projects, the largest and most ambitious of which has been its renewable energy system. In 2011 the company installed over 4,000 solar panels on its roof and added other electrical equipment to harness the energy from the array. The system now generates half the company's electricity needs.

The report explains other building improvements and gives hard facts on results. It cites dollars, energy and water saved, along with pounds of waste recycled annually. The changes have resulted in more efficient and brighter lighting; reduced heating and cooling costs due to the replacement of all windows; decreased electricity usage because of new, energy efficient motors in production areas; and reduced trash volume due to recycling and compacting.

"Building a Sustainable Future" also includes measures taken by team members that involve helping the community. Events such as holiday toy drives, wellness programs, food and clothing collections, blood drives and local student education programs help to illustrate the nature of this successful, employee-owned corporation.

"It's quite an accomplishment," said Baker of the many changes. "I'm excited to explore what improvements we can tackle next."
