Over the past decade, Orbus has diverted over 10 million pounds of waste from landfills.

Orbus Exhibit & Display Group (Woodridge, IL) recently commemorated Earth Day and Earth Month with a sustainability milestone, announcing that the manufacturer has recycled an average of 75% of its total waste each year for the past 10 years.

Over the past decade, Orbus has diverted over 10 million pounds of waste from landfills, according to a company press release. “This milestone is a testament to Orbus’ long-standing commitment to environmental sustainability and its ongoing efforts to reduce its impact on the planet,” reads the announcement. “As part of Orbus’ sustainability initiatives, we have built and maintained a comprehensive recycling program that includes separating recycled waste into categories such as cardboard, paper, aluminum, fabric, steel and [more].”

Orbus has been ISO 14001:2015 certified since 2010. The certification recognizes the company’s environmental management system that minimizes its impact on the environment in the design, manufacture and storage of trade show displays and accessories.

“We are thrilled to celebrate Earth Day by reaching this significant milestone,” Jim Concannon, operations manager & ISO representative for Orbus, is quoted in the release. “We recognize the importance of taking care of our planet and are proud to do our part by implementing sustainable practices in our business operations.”

Signs of the Times highlighted Orbus’ efforts to minimize its footprint and maximize materials in the April 2023 feature article, “Sustainability and Signs.”
