Corporate Social Responsibility

As environmental stewards, Pizzo & Associates, Ltd. is committed to restoring our shared environments’ resources. Accordingly, our environmental commitment extends beyond ecological restoration to incorporate sustainable business practices in all we do. We live by the motto “Primum non nocere” which translates to “First do no harm” and guides our corporate ethic.

At our headquarters in rural Leland, Illinois we utilize energy saving systems to reduce the company’s effect on the environment and to move toward a more sustainable development. Energy saving practices include:

  • Radiant floor heating
  • 100% fluorescent lighting, which lasts longer than traditional lighting, reduces waste and increases energy efficiency
  • Sodium vapor shop lamps
  • Terminal computing that uses up to 1/8 the amount of energy of a normal workstation
  • Tank-less water heaters that save in energy costs and fossil fuel usage
  • Landscaping with native plants that require less water and maintenance
  • A fleet of hybrid vehicles to reduce carbon emissions
