Sustainable Business, Sustainable Success

At BEST, sustainability and sustainable success are key components of our mission, vision, and core values. Our dedication to creating a sustainable Earth and being conscious of our carbon footprint has allowed us to generate a unique service that is seldom offered.


Environmental Sustainability Program

Through our environmental sustainability program, BEST has developed policies, procedures, and best practices for all BEST divisions to follow. BEST Shredding focuses on the following initiatives and environmental efforts:

  • Developing business partnerships with environmentally-focused organizations.
  • Supporting businesses that have an environmental sustainability plan.
  • Choosing practical and fuel-efficient vehicles.
  • Purchasing uniforms and supplies that are made through eco-friendly methods.
  • Purchasing equipment that is “Energy Star” rated.
  • Recycling all shredded paper. For every tonne of paper that we shred and recycle, 17 trees are saved and 5 cubic yards of space in landfills is freed.
