Environmental sustainability is a cornerstone value at Safety Rail Company – and our internal processes and facility operations reflect this commitment as we adhere to the following principles:
Safety Rail Company facilities are operated with sustainability in mind by utilizing 100% wind power – which supports local rural economies while using only environmentally friendly LED lighting. We are also committed to dramatically lowering our carbon footprint with the use of clean electric Arc-fired foundries (as opposed to coke-fired foundries), while also providing employee-use EV charging stations.
We are committed to recycling at SRC, both in our office operations (with paper, plastic, aluminum, and steel scrap) and our manufacturing process (by utilizing only domestically sourced products with proven documentation of recycled content).
We source 100% domestic products in our manufacturing process, maintaining as many regional partnerships as possible and thus lowering transportation-based carbon emissions.
The electro-static powder-coat paint used in our manufacturing process eliminates Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).
We have converted the wash systems used in our coating process from harmful phosphate-based pretreatments to those utilizing zirconium: a safer, greener material.
Safety Rail Company is committed to continually improving our environmental policies – we are thus continually monitoring our facility processes for energy efficiency in power usage, heating and cooling, and transportation efficiency.
