Fike is pleased to announce the launch of its ECARO-25plus program. As another element within Fike’s sustainability initiative, ECARO-25plus is designed to more than neutralise any carbon footprint of its premier fire protection product, ECARO-25.
“Fike has led the way in bringing quality, effective fire suppression solutions to the market,” explained Brad Stilwell, Director, Facilities Protection - Mechanical Products. “ECARO-25 is already the best performing product relative to cost, agent hold time, room pressure, flow capability and agent vaporisation. And with the launch of this new program, ECARO-25 will account for a negative net carbon footprint as well.”
In partnership with American Forests Global ReLeaf forest restoration program, effective August 1, 2012, Fike will begin investing a portion of all ECARO-25 sales in programs which absorb CO2 emissions. In addition, any time an ECARO-25 system is activated, the impact of the discharge will be neutralized through the ECARO-25plus program.
“American Forests’ mission is to protect and restore forests in order to preserve the health of our planet for the benefit of its inhabitants,” said American Forests CEO Scott Steen. “We are pleased to partner with Fike Corporation and support their commitment to greater sustainability and a healthier planet.”
“As an addition to Fike’s other sustainability and waste reduction initiatives, we have set a specific goal with the ECARO-25plus program to counteract at least 100 million pounds of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere annually,” says Brad Stilwell. “And we will continue to research and add resources which support the reduction of carbon emissions. Fike seeks to combine our business philosophy of providing quality products at a reasonable price, with an equally strong commitment to community involvement and environmental stewardship.”
