NEW YORK, July 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Fresh Harvest Products, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: FRHV) announced today that it is formally instituting a Sustainable Initiative and Sustainability Report that will be prepared for its fiscal year end and released with its Annual Report.
Internally, since our inception Fresh Harvest has been keeping track of our progress on sustainability and we have many practices in place (i.e. using environmentally friendly inks on our labels, using recycled cardboard in our packaging). However, by disclosing our Sustainable Report it will make sure that we are managing our resources efficiently and implementing good environmental practices; as well as to determine where we can find cost savings along our supply chain and our infrastructure. The Report will assess our carbon footprint and total emissions, with the goal of setting targets and programs to reduce and potentially offset our carbon footprint and emissions.
Our Report and Program will include Fresh Harvest's support of renewable energy, energy efficiency and carbon sequestration. Fresh Harvest will create a renewable energy section for its website for the Report, as well as provide educational information and explain how and why we are making our energy choices, and offer tips for organic and "green" living and eating.
"Although Fresh Harvest has always followed its beliefs in sustainability, decreasing our environmental impact in everything that we do and all of our products, as we grow it is important that new members of our team, customers and Shareholders understand the importance of sustainability as a key principle in the company," said Michael J. Friedman, President & CEO. "It is also important that as a growing company we quantify our dedication to protecting our environment, our families, and our communities, in a tangible and concrete Report. This Report is another way for us to show our commitment to 'connecting people and nature through food(TM)'".
