We believe that corporate sustainability is about doing the right thing. We are dedicated to environmental stewardship and ensuring we manage best practices in all of our business efforts. Our facility works hard to find sustainable solutions to lower our carbon footprint and increase our energy independence.
CITY is the largest privately held company in the state of Iowa to use solar panels. With 850 solar panels installed across our roof, we will replace 1/3 of our annual electric usage. Over the course of a 25-year lifecycle, the system is estimated to offset over 14 million pounds of CO2. This is equivalent to removing 1,395 cars off the road.
Our Norchem UltraPure water filtration system allows us to recycle over 70 percent of our water and to reuse 25 percent of our detergent. The system saves 665,000 gallons of water each month.
CITY’s corporate headquarters has completed an LED light conversion which saves over 45,000 kilowatt-hours and reduces 57,991 pounds of CO2 annually.
