Strategies
Past
In the past Global Solution Trucking has just been more focused on getting items from the place of origin to its final destination. Conducting regular business and using more electric and gas without considering the environment in the situation. There are many steps to reduce pollution by recycling in the workplace, such as proper disposal of paper and plastic can help this growing issue. In this company, there is a long use for paper for items like memos, proposals, reports, and also personal letters. This can all be eliminated by using all of these techniques in form of email instead of using paper that will later be trashed. Reducing pollution and saving energy was not the main goal, but looking at the current situation on pollution it’s a time to change.

Present Currently Global Solutions have a plan in place to reduce its carbon footprint on a global scale. The main goal is the first year our policy in effect is to reduce this footprint by at 25% or more. We are currently reducing the use of paper by switching to more email threads and if we use paper we throw it away in the proper recycling bin. Global Solutions are also using a new type of energy to power the lights in the office by using solar panels instead of the standard electricity. This alone can cut our prices in half on electric by using the sun as our power (Fleischer, N, 2014). Everything has a purpose in the company when it regards to pollution (inside the office and out) and we are adapting in many ways to help this company in change. To help our process there are many recycling bins outside that is designated for all items, such as paper, plastic, cardboard, and wood, to help our company reduce pollution.

Future There are many possible outcomes that Global Solutions can go many ways in the future to reduce pollution even up to 90 to even 100%. The only issue with this is that there might be technology that can be developed to help our company to reduce pollution that high. Until that day comes, the best for the future for this company…
