As the innovator of the most stylish luxury appliances for people who are not only passionate about the details of cooking but also share a passion for preserving the planet, Dacor remains committed to designing and manufacturing appliances in the most environmentally safe way possible.
This commitment includes reducing the energy demands of the company’s operations, maximizing the efficiency of products and implementing sustainable business practices, because working to reduce one’s carbon footprint to lessen the impact on the environment and improve social well-being should be the responsibility of all, not just a select few.
However, despite the clear necessity of instituting energy-efficient measures, many companies are cutting back, but Dacor is proudly surging forward with the introduction of a brand-new section on its website, entirely focused on the company’s commitment to the environment.
“Since its very beginning, Dacor has employed environmentally friendly practices in the manufacturing and production of products, not only because it protects our planet and our future, but also because it makes good business sense,” said Steve Joseph, Vice President of Marketing at Dacor. “Yet, our commitment goes well beyond our company operations; we strive to help our family, friends, colleagues and customers to live green as well and have updated our website with information that will help everyone achieve their goal of greener living.”
Featuring eco-friendly advice on how to demonstrate your passion for everything green, the enhancements to the website put the power of becoming energy efficient into your hands. With a combination of design and culinary tips from upgrading to energy-efficient appliances to buying produce from local farmers, you can easily reduce your carbon footprint and become an active partner in preserving the environment.
The new section highlights all of Dacor’s ENERGY STAR®-qualified appliances, which not only meet the tough criteria for energy efficiency and use considerably less energy than federal standards, but can also save you money. Without forsaking beautiful design, the Epicure® and Integrated 36” Built-In and Freestanding Refrigerators, Epicure 24” Outdoor Refrigerator and 24” Dishwashers in Epicure, Millennia®, Preference® and Integrated styles are available in breathtaking forms to accommodate the much-needed function.
Additionally, with the introduction of the environmentally focused section of the website, Dacor has also implemented an internal Green Council. The team includes members from various disciplines within the company who work together to establish long-term goals for the company’s sustainability program as well as review and evaluate existing practices to ensure they use all resources as efficiently as possible, providing recommendations for improvement.
“Our commitment as an environmentally friendly company is more than a marketing response to market trends, it’s the continuation of a long-standing tradition of our California-based company” continued Joseph. “By establishing a Green Council which includes team members from all disciplines, we get everyone involved and a greater chance of discovering and developing green ideas and innovations. At Dacor, we are passionate about cooking and we continue to channel that passion toward eco-friendly product design, manufacturing and distribution.“
