Freeman Audio Visual Canada is proud to announce it has made the REfficient Waste Diversion Champions list. The Waste Diversion Champions list recognizes companies that have reached impressive levels of reusing, buying, reselling and recycling surplus assets.

REfficient is an online marketplace that allows companies to buy quality telecom, A/V and IT equipment at significant discounts from sustainable sources.

“As industry leaders, we are held to a higher standard of corporate social responsibility by our employees, customers and partners. As such, we are always seeking greener methods in which to manage every area of our business,” said Johanne Bélanger, President, Freeman Audio Visual Canada. “Collaborating with organizations like REfficient has made it possible for our company to achieve this master level of waste diversion, an outstanding accomplishment our whole enterprise is extremely proud of.”

The Waste Diversion Champions program recognized 29 companies that have diverted at least 1000 pounds from landfills in the last year through buying, reusing, reselling or recycling their surplus assets. With three program recognition levels, Freeman Audio Visual Canada is included in the Master Level, which means it has diverted 10,000-99,999 lbs from landfills.

REfficient CEO Stephanie McLarty says this shows the interrelated business and environmental value when businesses take action. “There is a lot of talk about doing the right thing for the environment, but not always action,” she explained. “We recognize those companies that put their values into practice and reap the benefits.”
