Employees Engaging in Local Environmental Projects

KCG consistently ensures that employees are able to participate in helping and protecting the environment. Every employee is given their own recycling bin, and others are located around the building – including the  and kitchens. Employees are encouraged to recycle as much as possible and also submit any ideas they have to make sure our offices are as “green” as possible. Outside of the office, KCG employees also do their part to give back to the community and the environment. Employees from the warehouse and workshop recently worked with the company’s labors to plant trees in the company’s labor camp.

Embracing Green Initiatives at Head Office

KCG is always looking into the latest technologies and building amenities that can help reduce the company’s carbon footprint. As an example, the servers in the Head Office data center were converted to more energyefficient models last year, and the company moved to a virtualized platform that also cut down on the amount of energy and cooling needed. This effort reduced energy usage by 50%. The company is also researching environmentally friendly options for future construction projects, including the utilizing of elemental factors for building maintenance.

Recycling at Warehouse

KCG’s warehouse work hard to recycle and reuse materials as much as possible. Some of the things the warehouse employs include systems to regulate lighting, air quality and temperature. These systems ensure that resources are used only when necessary for maximum efficiency.

KCG Is Making a Difference

KCG greatly cares about the planet and strives to minimize the impact of the company’s activities on the environment as a whole. Whether through a program that affects the entire projects or an idea suggested by just one employee, KCG realizes every little bit counts. As a result, the company has been able to significantly reduce the waste produced at job sites. By helping to set the bar as an environmentally responsible company, it will hopefully encourage others to follow.
