ABM Reports On Corporate Sustainability Initiatives

ABM (NYSE:ABM) , a leading provider of facility solutions, today released its Corporate Sustainability Report for 2012, providing detailed information on its sustainability practices for three consecutive years.

The report, covering fiscal year 2012, details ABM’s commitments and practices with regard to its corporate social responsibilities, both inside the Company and at the level of the products and services that ABM’s service lines provide to clients. ABM’s participation in the GRI reporting standard reflects the Company’s continued and ongoing commitment to driving the sustainable development of the economy, society and the environment.

ABM’s 2012 report outlines each aspect of sustainability within the Company’s diverse service offerings. ABM submitted the report for third party assessment to The Centre for Sustainability and Excellence (CSE), and subsequently disclosed additional GRI indicators as compared to 2011. CSE’s evaluation can be found in the last few pages of the report. Notable highlights in this year’s report include:

  • The acquisitions of Air Serv, HHA Services and Calvert Jones in calendar year 2012 underscored ABM’s commitment to growing its services in key vertical markets.
  • Further emphasizing a commitment to providing dependable, advanced energy-related services, ABM’s Bundled Energy Solutions program landed numerous key contracts, including Wright State University (WSU) that is expected to lower the school’s energy consumption by 40% and save WSU $35.8 million in energy costs over the next 15 years. In 2012, ABM reduced its Bundled Energy Solutions clients’ energy use by 28.6 percent and saved them over $3 million in energy costs. Additionally, ABM’s energy business continued to solidify its leadership position in the electric vehicle (EV) installation and maintenance market, landing key contracts with the City of Oakland and at AT&T Park in San Francisco.
  • How ABM is managing its risks in relation to corporate social responsibilities, including risks/opportunities for ABM due to potential climate change regulation.
  • ABM’s community support of March of Dimes, along with the Company’s support of local charities around the country.

ABM’s Director of Sustainability, Environmental Services Alan France said: “We continue to make advancements in our Corporate Sustainability program each year.
