The Virginia Manufacturers Association (VMA) announces Sustaining VirginiaTM, a recognition program for manufacturers in support of their sustainable business practices in the Commonwealth of Virginia. To learn more about the manufacturing industry of Virginia check out the video, Made In Virginia, at the bottom of this page.

Sustaining VirginiaTM is focused on creating a more sustainable future and a greener Virginia, while simultaneously rewarding and celebrating the businesses that make these prospects possible. The program is designed to provide tools and resources the businesses can use to align with Virginia’s green goals as well as a serve as a platform for businesses to exhibit and obtaining recognition for sustainable achievements. To participate, manufacturers can submit an online assessment highlighting their individual efforts to protect the environment and contribute to a higher quality of life for residents in their local operating communities. Recognition will be provided at three achievement levels for accomplishments that go beyond compliance.


Sustainable Tips

Just Right.
Heating & Cooling
In winter, set office thermostat between 65 and 68 during the day/business hours, and 55 to 65 degrees during unoccupied times. In summer, set thermostats between 78 and 80 degrees during the day/business hours, and above 80 degrees during unoccupied hours. Setting even a degree or two closer to these settings will make a big difference in your energy bill.
