Reduce Greenhouse Gases
Sustainable Technologies is committed to protecting our natural resources for a sustainable planet. Here are some of the things that we do to reduce greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change.

Our company recycles all recyclable material, including scrap metal. By recycling we keep over 2,400 lbs of CO2 from entering the atmosphere per year. Our goal is to use less plastic and zero waste.

Many of our employees bike to work and enjoy cycling as a healthy recreational activity and sport. We are a certified Bike Friendly Business with the League of American Bicyclists. Our company is a proud sponsor of Team Oakland Cycling and participates in local events. We support our local bike coalitions and help fund transportation alternatives locally. By cycling to work, each person keeps approximately 2600 lbs. of CO2 from entering the Earth’s atmosphere annually. That’s like planting 86 trees! We also carpool and use a hybrid vehicle for light trips. By taking Fridays off of site work, we will reduce even more and help ease traffic congestion.

Energy Efficiency
We have achieved a 79% reduction on our utility bills by installing energy efficient lighting in our facility and continue to monitor and streamline our usage.

Renewable Energy
Our office runs on solar power with a battery backup. Having an off-grid mobile unit is handy in case of emergency power outages. We design and install solar PV systems on and off-grid in order to promote clean and renewable energy.

Donations to Sustainable Organizations
In our commitment to support our community we donate to local organizations that help the community and the environment.

A Certified Green Business
We are a proud member of the Bay Area Green Business Program, the California Green Business Network. and a Water Smart Business.
