Emerald Brand announced today that 2015 was a year of double-digit growth, the third year in a row the company has seen these results.

As a leading innovator in sustainable solutions, Emerald successfully converts facilities across the United States to sustainable consumable products, helping companies achieve their corporate social responsibility goals and create happier and healthier working environments. In 2015 the company experienced another year of expansion, adding over 25 additional cities to its distribution network.

Emerald specializes in converting large corporate offices, stadiums, universities, and building complexes to environmentally friendly disposable solutions for the foodservice, breakroom, janitorial and packaging sectors. Emerald products are manufactured using sustainable, rapidly renewable alternative materials including, sugarcane bagasse, bamboo, plant starch and eucalyptus in place of hardwood trees and petroleum-based plastic. A staple of the brand is its line of Tree-FreeTM towel and tissue products that are also BPA free, Chlorine free, and USDA Bio-Preferred.

“We continue to see demand grow for solutions that help facilities make an impactful environmental difference in a simple way,” states Jaclyn McDuffey, Managing Director at Emerald. “Many facility operators now realize how big of an impact they can have on their company’s environmental footprint simply by choosing alternative sustainable disposables over traditional, non-sustainable brands.”

Fundamental to Emerald’s solution is the Emerald Sustainability Program, which provides quarterly and annual Environmental Impact Statements that calculate how many trees, gallons of water, pounds of landfill waste, electricity, and plastic participants have saved by using Emerald products over traditional, non-sustainable materials. These reports use proprietary algorithms to quantify and promote each participants social responsibility efforts in tangible numbers.

“Emerald Environmental Impact Statements have brought tremendous value to our clients. We are proud to be able to provide companies with their environmental savings data,” says McDuffey. “Most importantly, we are proud to deliver this program to operators at cost-neutral or less than their current spend, making it a truly simple solution for a company’s social responsibility initiatives.”

Many products within the Emerald Sustainability Program also meets the criteria needed for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) points within the Materials and Resources and Indoor Environmental Quality categories.

The company anticipates a continued pattern of double digit growth in 2016.
