Environmental Impact - Reducing Carbon Footprint

While Pinnergy has always valued its people and the communities it interacts with, there previously has not been a good way to measure it, unless of course you count all the employee smiles and friendly handshakes. In that spirit, Pinnergy has partnered with Dakota Software and Scope5 to quantify issues that impact our communities. These industry leaders are a great asset to Pinnergy’s commitment in reducing our carbon footprint, and give us the proper tools to measure and improve year after year. The importance of this is so vast that we have expanded our operations to include renewable energy sources.

As we strive to reduce our carbon footprint, Pinnergy looks to affordable and reliable solutions to become a well-rounded energy services company.  With unique power solutions, our customers can now supplement fossil fuel use with renewable and sustainable wind energy.  Not only is this available to our customer base, but also a critical component of Pinnergy’s commitment to reducing Scope 1 & 2 emissions.

Since 2004, Pinnergy has been utilizing electronic logging in its commercial motor vehicle fleet for DOT logs.  Not only does electronic logging provide superb data for many metrics and logistics, it also eliminates the need for paper logs and thus, paper.  This reduction of paper use has resulted in a significant reduction process usages and associated carbon impacts. 

As we move into a new era where digital data is the norm, Pinnergy has adopted electronic field ticketing.  If you thought the paper reduction from electronic logging was impressive, you’ll really take notice with electronic field tickets.  With DOT paper logs, a single sheet of paper would be used each day per driver.  With field tickets, they are used per job, accounting for an average of 10 tickets per driver, per day.  To compound that, each field ticket has carbon copies in a set of three. When you crunch those numbers, you’ll see resource reduction in excess of 25 times greater than that of electronic DOT logging.
