Pratt Industries and Sustainability
Sustainability has always been the cornerstone our culture at Pratt Industries. Pratt’s commitment to the environment extends far beyond its pledge to produce 100% recycled paper and packaging. We have also invested heavily in clean energy production, including our waste-to-energy plant, operational at our Conyers HQ since 2009 and the rooftop solar photovoltaic system that was installed at our New York City box plant last year.
