Water & Energy

That’s Cool: Exteriors of buildings at CAP’s
Headquarters are painted with reflective paint. This
“cool wall” paint generates a 5% energy savings
over traditional paint. 

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle 

Bulk Up: Fluids used in the vehicle shop are purchased
in bulk, eliminating the need for quart bottles. 


Natural Environment

Reducing Pesticides and Herbicides: Fish are stocked
in CAP’s canal to control weeds and pests rather
than using pesticides and herbicides. 

Trip Reduction/Compressed Workweek
Trip Reduction

Trip Reduction: CAP has a comprehensive and
ongoing trip reduction program. Approximately 15%
of all employees participate in vanpools or carpools, allowing us to achieve a low 67.22% rate of single occupant vehicle travel.
