Pacific Coast is sensitive to its environmental responsibilities and works hard to keep its impact on the environment and natural resource base to a minimum. Pacific Coast treats the environment as it does its customers, employees and suppliers – with care, consideration and respect. The company has a long tradition of being environmentally aware at all of its sites and in all of its operations. When the company added manufacturing to its portfolio of businesses, it established a corporate environmental department to provide oversight of company environmental programs and to correct potential problems before they became an issue. Through training and information programs, employees are encouraged to minimize waste, recycle, and protect wildlife that inhabit company property.
