Air-Vac Significant Environmental Aspects
- Waste (what goes to the Landfill)
- Energy Usage (Power, Gas & Water)
- Oil & Coolant Usage (Spills and Discharges)

Progress Against Environmental Objectives
Air-Vac established its EMS in August, 2012. Implementation of a comprehensive program to separate recyclables from trash has resulted in a 40% reduction in waste going to the landfill in August-December 2012, compared to the same period in 2011.

Air-Vac also coordinated a comprehensive energy audit by World Energy, however the large investment required is not possible at this time. A 1% reduction in energy usage was realized in August-December 2012, compared to the same period in 2011.

Regulatory Fines and Penalties
