TriSports.com 2016 Sustainability Figures https://university.trisports.com/2017/02/07/trisports-com-2016-sustainability-figures/ Tue, 07 Feb 2017 13:43:46 +0000 http://www.university.trisports.com/?p=7988 TUCSON, AZ (February 7, 2017) — TriSports.com continues to surpass its sustainability efforts from the previous year, achieving multiple records for 2016.

TUCSON, AZ (February 7, 2017) — TriSports.com continues to surpass its sustainability efforts from the previous year, achieving multiple records for 2016. With several conservation programs in place, industrial sustainability is a top priority for TriSports, as observed in the company’s core values.

The 128 kW solar array was installed in December 2011 and in its lifetime has produced 1.22 GWh of energy. Since its inception, the actual output has over-produced by 8.5% from the original production estimates. This amount of energy production has conserved 94,456 gallons of gasoline and 608,691 gallons of water over its lifespan. Other than solar energy, TriSports also has two 36,000 gallon water harvesting tanks. These tanks were installed in 2011 to collect rain water and condensate to use for landscaping and other gray water purposes. Last year, 72,340 gallons of water was harvested, contributing to a total of 431,630 gallons since installation of the system.

TriSports continues its green efforts with an employee bike and run commuter program, providing the staff with incentives for commuting. Over 50% of the employees participate in the program and in 2016 the staff logged 14,883 miles. The company is nearing its 230,000 mile marker since it started the program in 2009. This program not only aligns with TriSports’ mission to lead the way in industrial conservation, but also contributes in keeping staff incentivized to make their wellness a priority.

Last year marked another exciting conservation milestone, when TriSports transitioned away from shipping boxes to using eco-friendly bags in order to better serve the environment. The corrugated boxes previously used for most shipping consumed 23 times more energy and produced six times more carbon dioxide than the bags used now. With these bags in use, 91% less energy will be used to recycle a pound of this material in comparison to a pound of paper.

Seton Claggett, TriSports CEO, and sustainability proponent said, “I hope that our efforts as a company pave the way to show other businesses that adopting conservation practices is economical and easy to implement whatever the business size. As a corporation, we have a responsibility to reduce the impact that industry has on our environment, both locally and globally. Every department in our company contributes to the success of our sustainability efforts. Each employee plays an integral part in the day-to-day conservation to the larger, departmental decisions that impact our carbon footprint. As a company that values environmental consciousness, we all take great pride in our annual sustainability achievements.”

TUCSON, AZ (November  10, 2016) — TriSports.com is a proud supporter of Jr. El Tour, a Tucson-based program that provides 35 underprivileged children ages 10-12 the opportunity to start cycling. The youth participate in a 12-week cycling program that trains new cyclists to ride in the 40-mile El Tour de Tucson cycling event. The program is geared to help children struggling with issues like obesity, low self-esteem, or financial hardship and instill a sense of teamwork and develop strong work ethic in participating youth.

All the equipment is provided by Jr. El Tour. The program offers free training three times per week, including sessions with cycling trainers, sports nutrition, and road safety education. After the children complete the 40-mile El Tour de Tucson ride, happening November 19th, participants may enroll in a follow-up program for group rides.

The program is funded through generous donations from sponsors, like TriSports.com. This year, TriSports delivered 37 bikes to the program with the help of Fuji. Upon successful completion of the 12-week training program, these young riders get to keep their bicycle. Last year, 28 kids completed the program and earned their bicycles. 35 youth have registered for the program this year and are slotted to ride in El Tour and earn their bikes.

“This program does so much for all these kids, and it could never be possible without the generous donation of TriSports.com. We thank them for their many years of support,” said Program Director Scott Blanchard.

TriSports.com CEO, Seton Claggett adds, “The Jr. El Tour program is making a difference in these children’s lives, by providing a means to boost self-esteem and physical fitness in a positive manner. TriSports is thrilled to take part in this program, giving back to the community and sharing our passion for cycling with the youth. We’re fortunate to have generous vendors, like Fuji, Abus, Knog and Profile Design, to help provide this opportunity to promote cycling and healthy living to our local youth.”

Smile Train Team EMPOWER has helped more than 9,600 children since first partnering with IRONMAN Arizona in 2013.

Dr. Cappie Baker, Smile Train athlete said, “It’s always a joy to add meaning to my athletic endurance triathlon efforts. I have joined SmileTrain Team EMPOWER.”

TriSports.com created a two year partnership with SmileTrain Team EMPOWER in September of 2016. The camp was the first opportunity to interact with the athletes who are racing for Smile Train. TriSports supplied the athletes with bike tubes and CO2 for training rides and race day, as well as use of rental bikes during the event. In addition, TriSports provided goodie bags with water bottles, TriSports EcoLips lip balm, stickers/tattoos, and nutrition to all the campers, support staff, QT2 coaches, and SmileTrain organizers.

The campers represented the full spectrum of triathlon ability, with varying experience, all committed to one goal; racing IRONMAN Arizona this November. TriSports’ Pam Kallio, Sponsorship Coordinator, attended the entire camp to offer direct support. Kallio spoke to campers one evening, educating athletes with a presentation titled “Optimize Your Performance.”

Kallio explained, “We are thrilled to be partners with SmileTrain. SmileTrain Team EMPOWER is giving triathletes a bigger purpose to race for and we want to reward that. TriSports is more than an online triathlon retailer; we support our global community through charity support like SmileTrain Team EMPOWER’s mission. Through our sponsorship program, we are able to support causes, races, and athletes to assist them in achieving their charitable objectives.”

Shop pic solar waterTUCSON, AZ (April 19, 2016) — TriSports.com is continuing its success increasing sustainability throughout the company’s operations. Celebrating Earth Day, the company has multiple programs in place to help reduce the company’s carbon footprint. TriSports provides tours of its facility to students, business professionals, engineers, and architects to demonstrate how a company can adopt any number of these conservation programs and its eco-friendly facility design that has made TriSports nationally recognized for its sustainable business practices.

The most recent green business practice that was adopted by the company was its transition from corrugated boxes to new packaging that use 23 times less energy and six times less carbon dioxide. The bags are 100% recyclable, made of recycled materials, and will reduce the environmental impact by lessening energy consumption by 91%.

Since 2010, TriSports has been water harvesting using two, 18,000 gallon tanks. Last year the company had its best year so far and collected 99,970 gallons of water which exceeded 2014’s record by 28%, over 28,000 gallons. The water harvested is used for the company’s irrigation and other gray water needs. In 2011, TriSports installed a 128 kW solar array which has prevented 74,857 pounds of methane and 1,570,920 pounds of CO2 from air pollution. Last year, TriSports produced 233,241 kWh of solar energy, surpassing production estimates by 10,053 kWh. Through these environmentally friendly business practices, the company has hit another sustainability milestone by generating 1.03 GWh of energy, while conserving 516,682 gallons of water and 80,180 gallons of gasoline in its lifetime.

Debbie Claggett, TriSports Vice President, explains the importance of employee backing, “Every staff member contributes to our sustainability efforts, from the day-to-day conservation to the larger, departmental decisions that may impact our carbon footprint. With all hands working to achieve excellence in our sustainability core value, we are able to make greater environmental strides.”

James Cramton participates in the Employee Commuter Program

Another program in place to support efforts to decrease the organization’s ecological impact is the TriSports Commuter Program, which started in 2009 and has generated 220,000 miles to date. This year alone, employees have added 345 trips and over 4,100 miles to the commuter total. TriSports encourages commuting through a rewards program, ample bike storage, and access to lockers and showers for staff members.

The company continues its sustainability practices through its recycling program. TriSports reduces much of its waste and energy, while reusing what it can and recycling as much shipping and office material as possible. Packaging that can be reused is repurposed, and all paper, excluding confidential documents, is used again, then recycled. TriSports oversees recycling of wetsuits, bicycle tires, CDs/DVDs, and bicycle parts, the last being  sent to Resource Revival to be rebirthed as artwork. Additionally, used shoes are collected at TriSports, and the company has partnered with a local charity to donate customers’ old shoes for reuse within the Tucson community.

Through its numerous sustainability programs, TriSports is lessening the environmental impact of commerce and leading the way in industrial conservation. Learn more about TriSports.com at www.trisports.com.

RRRTUCSON, AZ (April 6, 2016) – TriSports.com continues to excel in its conservation efforts with several programs in place to reduce the business’ carbon footprint.  The company has added another milestone to its list of sustainability accomplishments; new packaging is being used to replace corrugated boxes in order to decrease its environmental impact. This change supports TriSports.com’s sustainability core value, as these bags are 100% recyclable and made of recycled content. It takes 10,000 bags to account for only 7% of the weight of the same number of boxes, leading to a significant reduction on the organization’s ecological impact. Package weight has been shown to be the single, greatest influence of environmental burdens due to energy used in material production, transportation, and disposal. A corrugated box uses 23 times more energy and produces six times more carbon dioxide than the new bag being used. Through the use of these bags, 91% less energy will be consumed to recycle a pound of this plastic in comparison to a pound of paper.

Distribution Center Manager, Susan Meeker was the project lead in finding a more environmentally-friendly option for the company’s shipping needs. “After seeing the conservation savings we could attain simply by switching our packaging, it was my mission to implement this change as quickly as possible. What a difference a bag makes, it takes six trucks to deliver boxes compared to one truck for the same amount of polybags. In staying true to our sustainability value, this new packaging will help us conserve the environment, a win for everyone,” explained Meeker.

Among this new addition to the TriSports distribution center, the company continues to lead the way in business conservation with many other programs. The employee Commuter Program to date has accumulated close to 220,000 miles, with over 60% of the staff participating in the program. The facility has two water harvesting tanks that hold 36,000 gallons of rain water for landscaping and other gray water needs. TriSports also has a 128 kW solar array, which last year produced 233,241 kWh of solar energy.  TriSports.com stands by its commitment to operate a sustainable business. The company and its employees believe that it is not only an organization’s responsibility to be green, but it is also the people behind the business that must make decisions in the best interest of the environment. Every department and individual at TriSports effectively contributes to these  efforts to minimize the environmental impact of commercial operations.

TUCSON, AZ (January 20, 2016) – TriSports.com is supporting World Bicycle Relief (WBR), helping to mobilize communities in rural Africa through the power of bicycles. WBR provides rugged, locally assembled bikes to students, healthcare workers, and local entrepreneurs. WBR trains local field mechanics to ensure bike maintenance and parts are available, while providing a new career infrastructure and preserving the lifetime of these bikes. TriSports is excited to participate in the WBR mission and aid the organization to obtain more Buffalo Bicycles and donations, as well as create awareness about the cause.

WBR delivers Buffalo Bicycles to communities in need, which helps them by broadening access to education, healthcare, and economic opportunities. The Buffalo Bicycles are specially designed to be functional and durable for the rough, African terrain and substantial load requirements that students, healthcare workers, and entrepreneurs require. For every ten miles traveled, a bike saves three hours of time. With just one bicycle, student attendance increased by 28%; grades improved by 59%. Healthcare workers are able to reach patients at greater distances and see them more frequently. An entrepreneur using a bike is able to carry five times the load as opposed to walking, travel four times further, and increase profits by up to 50%.

TriSports is donating five of the Buffalo Bicycles to the cause to provide five individuals greater opportunities to prosper. Additionally, from now until the end of April, for every two 2016 model year bikes sold, TriSports will donate one Buffalo Bicycle to WBR. TriSports is also giving 100% of the proceeds from sales of the WBR Stem Caps to the program. Individuals can donate directly to WBR by visiting their website, worldbicyclerelief.org.

Seton Claggett, TriSports.com CEO, believes it is a company’s role to support philanthropic causes, “We believe that just one company can inspire change. At TriSports.com, our company culture is bettering our environment, not just in an eco-friendly sense, but taking action to improve the condition of both our local and global community. World Bicycle Relief is making a difference in people’s lives in these developing nations, one bicycle at a time. A bicycle becomes a vehicle for change in these communities, empowering people and providing opportunities to thrive, and we want to be a part of that change, which is why we are getting involved with WBR.”

TUCSON, AZ (January 11, 2016) — TriSports.com is committed to leading the industry in green business practices in support of the company’s mission: to live a sustainable and active triathlon lifestyle. To successfully reduce the business’ carbon footprint, TriSports has several programs in place to be effective in its conservation efforts.

TriSports began water harvesting in 2010, when the company set up two 18,000 gallon tanks. In 2015, the company had its best year to date and harvested 99,970 gallons of water, surpassing 2014’s record by 28%, over 28,000 gallons. Water from these tanks is used for irrigation and other gray water needs. The water harvesting has captured 359,290 gallons of water for reuse since 2011.

The company also installed its 128 kW solar array in 2011 and has since saved 1,466,914 pounds of CO2 and 69,901 pounds of methane from polluting the air. In 2015, TriSports produced 233,241 kWh of solar energy, exceeding production estimates by 10,053 kWh. Through these sustainable business practices, the company has generated 965 MWh of energy, while conserving 482,474 gallons of water and 74,871 gallons of gasoline in its lifetime. Real-time figures are available by visiting the TriSports.com website and clicking the “Solar Powered” link at the bottom of every page.

Additionally, TriSports has a commuter program in place to reduce the environmental impact made in the community, as well as encouraging a healthy and active lifestyle for its employees. The TriSports.com Commuter Program provides rewards and other incentives to employees for cycling or running to and from work. In 2015, the staff logged a total of 20,298 miles. December marked an impressive milestone for the company, as the employees reached 200,000 bicycle commuter miles since starting the program in 2009. Currently, over 60% of the employees participate in the commuter program, and of those who commute, 80% do so more than twice a week.

TriSports Director of Operations, Nathan Hall, is pleased with the results from the company’s conservation efforts, “We strive to be exceptional in all facets of our business, from the products and customer experience that we offer, to the environment and community which we serve. We believe that just one company can inspire change; TriSports is leading this change by example, showing how businesses can take responsibility in order to reduce their environmental impact. We are grateful to have employees who echo our company culture, ensuring sustainability is occurring in all parts of the business. These programs demonstrate the many ways TriSports is committed to lessening the environmental impact of commerce, promoting conservation to better the community and world in which we live.”

Matt Hanson is a 2015 sponsored athlete of QR and TriSports.com. Matt has proven himself on and off the triathlon course, demonstrating his commitment to the sport as an athlete, ambassador, researcher, and now coach. Both companies are thrilled to extend this sponsorship opportunity to Matt Hanson Coaching, as Matt embodies the TriSports.com and QR ethos through his athletic performances and in his coaching objectives. As an athlete, Matt came out of the starting blocks strong and didn’t set just one, but three course run records in his first year competing as a professional. He went on to win the 2014 IRONMAN Chattanooga and 2015 IRONMAN Texas, where he set the overall course record and was crowned North American Champion.

Seton Claggett, TriSports.com CEO, said, “This sponsorship has developed out of the systemic alignment in our values and beliefs as a company. Matt has extensive first-hand knowledge of the sport from the competitor perspective, as well as a fundamental coaching philosophy and vast education that will allow athletes to reach their peak performance through research-backed training principles. We’re thrilled to sponsor Matt Hanson Coaching and support his contributions to the industry and the athletes, as he helps us promote the TriSports.com mission: to live a sustainable and active triathlon lifestyle!”

In sponsoring Matt Hanson Coaching, the athletes Matt trains will receive exclusive benefits, such as discount programs for the 2016 QR models through TriSports.com, as well as special pricing on TriSports.com purchases*. “I am thrilled with the partnership of Matt Hanson Coaching with Trisports.com and Quintana Roo. The support that they give me as an athlete is unmatched. I am excited that the team members will also be able to be supported by these two amazing companies,” explained Matt.

Matt understands a solid training foundation is essential; however, the best and most functional equipment also plays a significant role in an athlete’s success, which is why Matt selected TriSports.com and QR as his sponsors. He believes in QR’s craftsmanship and TriSports.com’s commitment to provide athletes with the best quality products. Matt Hanson Coaching is dedicated to helping athletes reach their full potential, the belief that QR and TriSports.com also share. Matt Hanson Coaching joins the prestigious list of TriSports.com and QR sponsored athletes, clubs, races, and coaches.
