We are pleased to announce that Mid-State Supply Company and the Crest Industries Family of Companies are officially carbon negative for all scope 1 and 2 emissions.
“With our company’s size and scale, it’s important to be aware of our impact and make sure that we are setting the right example,” says Tre’ Fusilier, President of Mid-State Supply. “We do the right thing, and we care about the longevity of the communities we serve – it’s embedded within our company values.”
To better communicate and measure sustainability benchmarks, the team partnered with third-party firms in an Emissions Identification Process and Sequestration Calculation to define our corporate carbon footprint for 2021 and establish a program management plan to guide our future operations and reporting.
This initial evaluation of company-wide operations revealed all greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) from our direct operations and purchased electricity are offset by the emissions sequestered through our sister company’s sustainable management of more than 100,000 acres of timberland. As a whole, we annually sequester 30 times more GHG than the entire Crest Family of Companies directly emits into the environment.
“Mid-State’s purpose is to help people succeed,” Fusilier continues. “For us, business is personal, and what better way to live that purpose and drive success for our communities and employees than through our continued sustainable operations?”
“Just because we’re carbon negative now doesn’t mean we’ll stop pursuing greater levels of corporate responsibility,” says Matt Purser, Chief Operating Officer of Industrial Services and Distribution for Crest Industries. “We want to have plans in place to expand other initiatives, community involvement, safety, and more. Our work isn’t finished.”
