At Ryan’s we feel it is Socially Responsible to provide healthy food and drink choices in our product menus and we take this responsibility seriously. Years before our provincial government created the guidelines for healthy foods in public buildings and schools, Ryan’s was already providing dietician approved products in their machines. We felt it was important because we believe eating right is everybody’s business.
Part of being Socially Responsible is doing the right thing for the greater good of the community. We realize we can play an important role in fostering healthy eating habits in kids and adults and our machines reflect our desire and ability to do so. Look for healthy options in our machines today.
We recognize the need for environmental awareness and want to reduce the impact we have in our business operations. We have implemented a variety of environmental initiatives to reduce our environmental impact such as improved Recycling measures, Fuel Efficiency, a Carbon Neutral plan, and meeting client requests for canned products instead of plastic where possible.
We improved our recycling program by introducing a wide variety of bins to recycle numerous products, we donate products and contract to companies that can re-use and recycle products we are unable to.
To improve fuel efficiency, we use technology to reduce the number of stops our drivers make each day, decreasing vehicles on the road and reducing fuel consumed each year. In conjunction with technological investments, we purchased the most fuel-efficient vehicles we could find and soon had a new fleet of trucks and hybrid management vehicles.
January 2010 Ryan Company Ltd. officially became carbon neutral. To achieve this, required months of research to quantify our carbon footprint. We hired a Sustainability Coordinator and by purchasing carbon offsets we made a financial commitment to become Carbon neutral.
With the help of our partners Ryan’s has increased our understanding of what it means to be more sustainable and environmentally conscious and we will continue to work with our clients and employees to reduce, re-use and recycle.
