April 22 2021 - Each year, Peerless-AV® celebrates Earth Day by shedding light on our product partnerships with energy solution providers and what makes our audio visual solutions more environmentally friendly. Learn more about our efforts to build a sustainable future in AV and digital signage below!
This past year, Peerless-AV® proudly celebrated receiving the ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System certification! By implementing an ISO-certified EMS inclusive of our procedures and policies, our goal is to continue to minimize environmental impact from our operations, strengthen our commitment to sustainability and increase stakeholders' trust. This certification helps organizations like our own to protect the environment and establish environmental objectives and provides a framework for an effective environmental management system.
While Peerless-AV has held the ISO 9001 Quality Management System (QMS) certification since 1997, our team worked to achieve another well recognized international industry standard and incorporated environmental measures such as recycling, hazardous & universal waste management, spill prevention, wastewater discharge permit & many others into our environmental procedures.
Eco-conscious Digital Signage
Whether you're looking for more ways to decrease your carbon footprint or want to begin a more environmentally friendly project, our digital signage solutions can help!
While it may seem that digital advertising platforms would be less eco-friendly than paper, there are many factors to consider that disprove this. When paper advertisements are created, they are static and generally produce more waste as they are updated and more are printed. Digital signage is a solution to this in advertisements, menu boards, and more can be updated in real-time, as many times as you'd like without added waste. Not only this, but print materials use chemicals and inks that can be harmful to the environment.
Even though you're relying on energy for power, there's an added benefit of decreased waste in landfills. In terms of displays and waste, creating a well-built, durable product is key. Our outdoor-rated displays and kiosks withstand the elements and extreme temperatures, preventing re-installation and wasted products and materials.
Product Partner Feature: Volta
In 2015, Peerless-AV® partnered with Volta, a designer of electric vehicle (EV) charging stations aimed at bettering the world, one community at a time. Volta set out to accelerate the arrival of EV charging by offering free charging to drivers in various locations, encouraging the use of sustainable technology and a greener future.
The stations also double as an advertising platform, increasing the value of real estate by providing brands with new ways to reach shoppers. This is where the Peerless-AV® team came in to provide digital signage solutions.
The newest Volta charging stations feature our 55" Xtreme™ High Bright Outdoor Display to create a fully-sealed weatherproof design that offers the utmost protection against outdoor conditions, such as rain, snow, sleet, dust, insects, and pressure washing. Backed by sustainable technology and a team of innovative partners, our digital signage solutions met Volta's need for an elevated user experience and community impact. We look forward to continuing this partnership with Volta and working towards their mission of building technology that drives social change.
Earth day is a great reminder of how important our environment is and how it is critical to create products and services that benefit our world for years to come.
