The Lynden family of companies, Anchorage AL, was recently presented with a Green Star Award for environmental programs in Alaska.
The non-profit Green Star organization encourages businesses to practice waste reduction, energy conservation and pollution prevention through education and a voluntary "green business" certification program. Lynden's award will be officially presented next month at an Anchorage Chamber of Commerce meeting.
"Green Star is Alaska's leading organization recognizing waste reduction, energy conservation and pollution prevention," says Lynden President Jon Burdick. "Lynden has always been 'green,' working toward leaner, more productive and efficient ways of serving our customers, and we're pleased to receive this award."
Lynden is working as a unified organization to certify at least seven of its locations throughout the state including companies Alaska West Express, Lynden Air Cargo, and Lynden Transport locations in Alaska. Last year, Lynden created a cross-company team, the Green Initiative, and set environmental goals for fuel efficiency, energy conservation, pollution prevention, recycling and reuse.
