D&H Celebrates Earth Day with Green Initiatives

The distributor recently created a solar farm to reduce its energy expenditures, is virtualizing its infrastructure, and has increased the number of green-certified products it sells.

Just in time for Earth Day, D&H Distributing highlights its “Go Green” ecological programs and policies. For example, the company recently completed an installation of 62,729 square feet of solar panels adjacent to its corporate location in Harrisburg, Pa. The solar farm encompasses 3,542 U.S.-made panels, each generating 245 watts of energy that is projected to save up to 44 percent annually on D&H’s energy expenditures at that location.

In addition, D&H’s IT department is in the process of virtualizing its infrastructure, consolidating 60 virtual servers to run on only 20 systems. The company’s use of IBM Blade Centers further reduces cooling and energy costs.

D&H has a history of green initiates. The distributor has sold nearly 10 million units of green-certified products per year, aggregated across the three years that D&H has been tallying numbers for these products, amounting to 28,449,298 green items sold since 2010. The company’s inventory of merchandise that qualifies as “green” has also increased steadily over the years.

Other existing ecological policies include:

  • On-site and off-site recycling of paper, plastic, cardboard, and wood materials
  • The “Engaged Recycling” equipment disposal program for resellers
  • Motion sensors in all restrooms and storage rooms
  • Logistical software that calculates and assigns the smallest potential packaging for each shipment
  • Upgraded industrial batteries with automatic shut-offs
  • Use of recycled packing materials
  • Energy-efficient T5 lighting in both warehouse and corporate areas, which is 50 percent more efficient than traditional lighting

“D&H has been persistent in its application of ecologically conservative policies, which is reflected both in our offerings and within our organization,” says Jeff Davis, senior vice president of sales at D&H. “We also have to commend our channel partners for producing and purchasing more products that fulfill these guidelines. We feel an obligation to help advocate such solutions in the marketplace, making them more readily accessible to resellers, resulting in more eco-friendly infrastructures throughout the SMB community.”
