Bob Barker Company continuously strives to integrate sustainable practices throughout the business by offering customers a selection of product choices that are made from recycled and organic materials. In 2013, the company installed a 500 kilowatt solar farm on the rooftop of the main distribution center in North Carolina to generate over 700,000 kWh of electricity annually. To make buildings and operations even more efficient, the company installed energy efficient lighting and implemented a comprehensive recycling program which resulted in diverting 95% of waste from the landfill. Electric vehicle charging stations at two facility locations provide incentive for team members to purchase electric or hybrid vehicles. Through a telework program, team members work from home each Friday during the summer to help further reduce the company’s carbon footprint.
