Sustainability is based on a simple principle: Everything that we need for our survival and well-being depends, either directly or indirectly, on our natural environment. To pursue sustainability is to create and maintain the conditions under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony to support present and future generations.

Auto-Chlor System aims to accomplish this by providing solutions that are environmentally sound for our employees, our customers’ employees and patrons, as well as the communities we live in. As we have throughout our history, we will work to achieve this objective through continuous improvement in the environmental performance of all our activities.

Committed to the Future, in the Present

In addition to environmentally conscientious decisions with regard to our chemical formulations, over the years Auto-Chlor System has contributed significantly to minimize the impact of non-biodegradable material hauled to landfills. Since our beginning in 1938, Auto-Chlor System has made a conscientious effort to reuse containers. Still today, in our daily practice we encourage our customers to retain containers and during our scheduled service visit, our technician collects the used containers and returns them to our local service center for reclamation and reuse.

Our core business is centered on our WaterSaver™ low-energy dishwashing machines. Reducing the energy required to heat the water used in the cleaning and sanitizing process, in addition to the reduction in energy consumed per complete wash and rinse cycle, the Auto-Chlor dishwashing machines are the lowest water consuming dishwashing machines within their respective categories. The complete range of Auto-Chlor dishwashing machines earned the distinguished Energy Star qualification.

EPA’s Design for the Environment Program recognizes environmental leaders who voluntarily commit to the use of safer surfactants (non-polluting compounds helping protect aquatic life in both fresh and saltwater). The use of APE in all of the Auto-Chlor chemical formulations was eliminated years ahead of industry and governmental recognition of the importance, before year end 2000. Green Kleen products are formulated to exceed the EPA Safer Choice Product Standards criteria and have been reviewed by DfE and earned their approval.

Why is Sustainability Important?

The National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 committed the United States to sustainability, declaring it a national policy “to create and maintain conditions under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony, that permit fulfilling the social, economic and other requirements of present and future generations.”

In the years since NEPA was enacted, the public’s interest in sustainability has broadened. According to the National Research Council, there are many additional drivers for sustainability. In the areas where the US has seen considerable progress in sustainability, a common driver for sustainability efforts is citizens and other stakeholders concern. In addition, sustainability practitioners are becoming more ambitious in their sustainability efforts and are working together to share best practices to ensure the greatest environmental, economic and social impact.

EPA has a long history of working toward sustainable outcomes. To encourage progress, EPA developed a strategic approach to incorporate sustainability principles into its work.
