For 83 years, Grainger has been serving businesses and institutions across a variety of industries by helping them save time and money related to their maintenance, repair and operating supplies needs. Today, the company remains committed to listening to its customers and helping to collaboratively find the most cost-effective solutions for their evolving business needs.
With more than 8000 green products across a broad array of categories, Grainger definitely provides the product solutions that organizations need to “go green,” including those that help save energy, reduce water usage, improve indoor air quality and reduce waste. In addition to products, Grainger is educating business professionals on how to embrace energy-efficient solutions in their operations. Through supplier partnerships and its recent acquisition of Alliance Energy Solutions, the company offers training, needs assessments and audits in areas such as energy, water, green cleaning and waste reduction.
Grainger also diligently looks for ways to reduce its own environmental impact.
