The green movement
didn’t just start for
some – at Plath & Company, it’s been
a part of our collective spirit for more than
two decades. Founded in 1976 out of love for
preserving historic structures, Plath & Company
has been actively recycling and reducing construction
waste since the 1980s.

Good, Green Ideas. Everyday.
Plath’s goal is to not only reduce its environmental footprint, but also to improve the happiness and health of its workers while positively contributing to the community it serves. From a day-to-day office operational standpoint, Plath has taken affordable, simple steps to reduce consumption and waste. These steps include no longer using water bottles and cutting back on disposables in break rooms, standardizing two-sided printing and copying on recycled paper, reducing unwanted mailings and forms, installing reflective film on West windows, purchasing energy efficient lighting and implementing many other environmentally-friendly options. Additionally, Plath improved water conservation by following a Marin County water audit, and plans to implement other energy saving methods as well.
