Individual Initiatives

Part of Near Future's success, and the success of its sustainability program, depends on innovative ideas from everyone across the company. The power of collective thinking is truly bigger than the sum of its parts and the NFSP promotes creative thinking throughout the company that results in a virtuous cycle of innovations. One intended consequence of the program is to develop individual awareness within Near Future and promote individual advocacy and education beyond the walls of the company.

Strategy Development

An ongoing focus on sustainability requires senior-management support and the incorporation of sustainable business practices into the company's overall corporate strategy. Near Future is a member of several regional sustainable business groups to continuously challenge and innovate the company's strategic planning.

Sustainable Operations

Sustainable business practices boil down to operations. Internally, Near Future is constantly seeking alternatives for non-renewable products. Positioning Near Future as environmentally friendly only works if it's true. Near Future has been operating in an environmentally responsible manner since 2001 primarily through the use of intelligent building management. Intelligent Building Management has reduced Near Future's office energy consumption by more than 35%.

Ongoing Waste Reduction

The innovative thinking does not stop at operations. Near Future only uses recycled paper and is constantly reviewing ways to not only recycle but reduce the use of paper, bottles, cardboard boxes, electricity, natural gas, and other non-renewable products.

Public Awareness

We offer innovative services that help customers reduce their carbon footprint and become eco-friendly while highlighting their commitment to improving the environment. Through a series of Lunch and Learns (as part of the NFSP), the company is also educating its customers on how intelligent building management can conserve energy for their offices by automatically turning off devices such as amplifiers, projectors and televisions when not being used as well as regulating HVAC systems when employees are away.
