Arborjet, a company dedicated to developing remedies for destructive tree insects and diseases, announced another significant step toward reducing its carbon footprint. The company installed a 60-kilowatt photovoltaic solar energy system that will meet 100 percent of the company's electricity needs.

Designed and installed by Astrum Solar, a leading national full-service solar provider, the array of over 120 panels and inverters now reside on the Woburn, Massachusetts-based company's roof. This specification is particularly important to Arborjet as it continues to pursue an environmentally responsible path toward LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. As part of its company strategy as a responsible corporate citizen and its commitment to sustainability, Arborjet has installed reduced-use water fixtures, LED lighting and streamlined its operations to replace less efficient processes, in addition to investing over $200,000 in the new solar energy system.

"We are strong believers in our responsibility to continue to reduce our carbon footprint," said Russ Davis, president. "From the environmentally responsible products we produce, to the philanthropic efforts we put forth in our industry, and now our efforts to reduce the impact of our operations, Arborjet aims to lead the way when it comes to corporate responsibility. This happens not because someone thought it would be cool; it's part of our strategic plan. It's part of our DNA."
