Maroon Group LLC recently announced it has been recognized by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for its commitment to reduce waste, improve efficiency, and continuous work as an environmental steward.

Maroon Group reportedly met the criteria for the Achievement Level of the agency’s Encouraging Environmental Excellence Program, which requires participants to demonstrate significant progress in at least seven environmental stewardship criteria. Maroon Group also participates in NACD Responsible Distribution®, a third-party-verified program administered by the National Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD).

“Continued growth comes with greater responsibility, and we at Maroon Group are proud to receive this recognition from the Ohio EPA,” said Mark E. Reichard, president and CEO. “The employees of Maroon Group take our responsibility to the environment seriously, and we will continue to seek out areas where we can improve as environmental stewards.”

Many of the company’s resource conservation activities are part of the “Maroon is Green” program, reportedly aimed at collectively reducing the company’s carbon footprint through recycling and energy efficiency while encouraging employee involvement and continuous improvement. The company reportedly also engages in pollution prevention efforts by focusing on strict handling and containment procedures to prevent chemical spills or releases and reduces the environmental impacts associated with extensive long-haul shipping with strategically placed warehouse facilities that allow next-day delivery service to 65% of North America’s industrial manufacturers.
