Due to the pandemic, PWGC had to, unfortunately, cancel our 2020 Summer Party as well as our 2020 Holiday Party. Yet, we saw the opportunity to celebrate Earth Day, which is an annual event to demonstrate support for environmental protection, as this day aligns with our mission and vision. Our mission is:
“PWGC provides client driven solutions for challenging environmental engineering projects for the public and private sectors. We work closely with our clients to develop practical approaches to meet their goals and to ensure a resilient and sustainable future.”
Our vision is:
“To be a leading provider of environmental solutions for a sustainable future.”
Our main goal is provide a sustainable future and to protect the earth. Our projects as well as our executives, project managers and staff focus on and keep this in mind on a daily basis.
To celebrate Earth Day, we donated a total of 400 trees to New York State Department of Environmental Conservation’s (NYSDEC) Tree for Tribs program and School Seedling program. NYSDEC’s Trees for Tribs is a statewide program that plants trees next to streams to provide a variety of benefits including creation of wildlife habitat, improving water quality and building resiliency against storm events. Donations help this program provide native New York trees and shrubs across the state to ensure healthier wildlife, cleaner water and shores more resilient to storm damage.
NYSDEC’s School Seedling program provides teachers with trees for hands on learning experiences. Students become aware that they can play a role in protecting the environment through personal involvement growing trees either at school or by taking their tree home.
In addition, we held a socially distanced in-person event for those employees in the Bohemia office. The event was capped off with an internal plant exchange and raffles for all staff in all of our offices. The plant exchange was ran similarly to a “Secret Santa.” Some of the raffles that were awarded by chance were:
- Apple Airpods Pro
- Apple Watch SE
- Electric Fireplace
- Mini Fridge
- Nespresso Machine
- Ninja Foodi Pro Air Oven
- Weber Spirit-II Grill
- Vera Bradley & Yankee Candle Basket
- Bose Portable Speaker & Beach Basket
- 65” Westinghouse TV
The celebration was an excellent reminder to keep our mission and vision at the forefront of every project and our daily lives. We are currently cleaning up the mistakes of the past, let’s not make those some mistakes now. Our Earth is our home and what we do now will impact the future of it.
