We work with grocery chains and small independent grocers to increase their profitability by implementing money-saving sustainability practices with our Grocery Stewardship Certification.We work with small business owners to adopt business practices that save money and resources with our Root360 tool. Manomet is respected for its commitment to science, people, and effecting meaningful change in the world. It is rewarding to see Manomet making a difference in the field, but how are we doing on the sustainability of our own operations? We must not only look outward, but inward at our own choices as well. We have long been thoughtful about our own environmen- tal footprint. As staff, we share the organization’s deeply-held values on sustainability and positive change. When Manomet’s Root360 tool launched in early 2015, we were one of the first to use the tool to assess our own sustainability practices. Now we had a way to systematically measure how we were doing and track progress over time. The tool allowed us to docu- ment things we were already doing. We carpool to events. We meet, when possible, by Skype or videoconference. We recycle our paper, metals, and plastics. We compost our food waste to fertilize our gardens and our farm. We source the food for our events through local farmers and businesses whenever it is reasonably possible. We use high recycled content paper in our printers. Our Root360 score in 2015 was 58/100. The bench- mark feature of the tool showed us we were at the median. A Manomet’s sustainability efforts: BEHIND THE SCENES WITH MARK LAFAVER, SENIOR MANAGER OF FINANCE & FACILITIES At Manomet we believe people can change the world, and, in fact, people must. The challenges we face today—a changing climate, scarcity of fresh water, and the ability to produce food for a rapidly growing population— are some of the largest and most complex problems that people have ever faced. In order to rise to that challenge, Manomet engages people and applies science to provide practical solutions to act where people live and work.
