Environmental Management Program

PAR’s Environmental Impact was calculated for regions in the West, Northwest, and Midwest. Multiple impacts were calculated and the following was found:

2015–2016 2016–2017 2017–2018
Number of Employees in Reporting Region (reflective of amount of manhours) 3,008 2,623 2,127
Greenhouse Gas Emissions (metric tons of CO2e) 13,553 14,400a 18,375
Recycled Material (pounds) 187,393 494,822b 404,112
Water Consumption (gallons) 1,327,649 970,156 1,824,948
Reportable Spills 0 0 0

**These numbers are gross numbers and do not take into account consumption in comparison to manhours worked. PAR has an environmental impact reduction goal of the following:

  • Reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 5% by 2020
  • Reducing Water Consumption by 5% by 2020
  • Diverting 5% of waste from landfills by 2020
  • Maintaining no Reportable Spills throughout the Company

**As PAR works to include more and more regions into our reporting schema, our goals may change and grow.

aEmissions have gone up as regional difference apply in this situation. PAR started reporting for a number of work occurring outside of California where a predominant number of our greener fleet exists. Therefore, as work in California slowed and work outside of California accelerated, this reflected in our emissions number.

bRecycled material went up as regional offices started tracking recycling better. Although PAR has participated in recycling programs for a number of years now, the company had not been tracking the amount.
