NWS Partners with GreenPlaces to Grow Sustainability Efforts

Durham, N.C., Dec. 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NWS, a rapidly growing solutions and logistics provider to carriers and telecommunications contractors, is partnering with GreenPlaces to further develop and support NWS’s sustainability efforts.

GreenPlaces will generate a comprehensive greenhouse gas report, which will share the emissions factors from NWS’s business activities and highlight reduction strategies that can be implemented in 2023 and beyond. GreenPlaces is also helping NWS review and update some of its current policy documents related to carbon emissions and environmental stewardship.

“We know that environmental stewardship is becoming increasingly important for our customers. But even more than that, we know reducing our carbon footprint as a company is the right thing to do for the future of our planet,” said Jenn Viklund, vice president, chief of staff of NWS, who is leading the company’s sustainability efforts. “We are excited to be undertaking this review with GreenPlaces and look forward to implementing their recommendations next year.”

Based in Raleigh, North Carolina, GreenPlaces has developed a sustainability platform that is simple to implement and helps businesses gain insight into their carbon emissions, improve their metrics and reach sustainability goals with ease.
