Notable GHG Reduction and Sustainability Projects:
Waste Diversion: Quiet Nature focused on waste diversion by implementing office composting and by banning the use of K-Cups.
Sustainable Landscaping Presentations: Quiet Nature made presentations throughout the year to various groups on sustainable landscaping topics such as rain gardens, native plant landscapes and lawn alternative landscapes.
Fleet Management: Most of Quiet Nature’s internal GHG emissions come in the form of transportation and equipment use. They try to keep their trucks and machinery well maintained, with proper tire pressure, etc. in order to have them run at optimum efficiency. Quiet Nature is also developing ways for their clients to reduce their GHG emissions through the landscapes elements that they research, design, and create.
Supply Chain: Constantly seeking to reduce GHG emissions by finding clients, local suppliers and service providers close
Setting an Example: Quiet Nature is gradually turning their entire 10 acre property into a demonstration site for both large and small scale sustainable landscape solutions. The first stage of wild flower meadow creation went through its second growing season this past year with great results. They also installed a demonstration lawn alternative landscape and large, organic staff garden in the spring of 2012.
Sustainability Culture at Quiet Nature Ltd.:
Quiet Nature constantly seeks ways improve internal efficiency, waste reduction, re-use of materials, and service development, and discussions of these topics as a group take place on a regular basis.
