Vectorworks, Inc. Wins Howard County's Business Recycling and Waste Reduction Award

"Greenworks" award submission focused on sustainability and waste reduction at the global design and BIM software provider's headquarters

COLUMBIA, Md., April 22, 2020 — (PRNewswire) —

COLUMBIA, Md., April 22, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- In conjunction with Earth Day 2020, global design and BIM software provider, Vectorworks, Inc. celebrates their latest award. The Howard County Department of Public Works' Bureau of Environmental Services, Recycling Division selected Vectorworks as the winner of the 2020 Business Recycling and Waste Reduction Award. This accolade recognizes local businesses for their recycling and waste reduction efforts during the 2019 calendar year.

The winning submission, "Greenworks," is an environmentally-based project presented at the company's regular innovation discussions and focuses on methods to create a sustainable work environment. Employees from various teams and departments collaborated on the project that went into full effect a few months later. The project outlined implementing proper traditional recycling techniques and adding a new system to include recycling plastic bags and film packaging, which ultimately becomes Trex decking. Additionally, other initiatives involved purchasing utensils instead of plastic cutlery and replacing water bottles with a water filtering system.

"One might expect an innovation project from a global design software company to be a technology-focused project; however, we chose to focus on sustainable ways to improve our environment," said Janet Coppage, operations coordinator at Vectorworks and one of the employees behind the Greenworks project. "Not only are we pleased to see this initiative have a significant impact on our nearly 200 employees at our Columbia headquarters, but we also see this as an opportunity to educate families and surrounding communities for a greater reach and positive impact in our environment."
