Environmental & Sustainability Initiatives

ASM Global is committed to our corporate environmental responsibility. This commitment to the communities where we do business is based on the principles that the company was founded on in 1973. ASM Global is an international company doing business around the world and is proud of its Green Initiatives in the venues that we manage and in the communities that we live and serve. We are committed to ensuring that we are a ‘socially responsible’ company and take our commitment to the environment and the communities in which we operate seriously.

We have a responsibility to our guests, suppliers and partners as a leading facility management company to do all we can to reduce our impact on the environment. We are committed to building a culture where our clients, employees, guests, suppliers and contractors recognize our commitment to ensuring that our facilities operate successfully in our communities, and that we achieve our goal as a company of long-term sustainable success.

By taking steps to reduce waste from our daily facility operations and actively seeking ways to reduce our carbon footprint, we can do our part to help preserve the earth’s natural resources and enhance the quality of lives in our community. ASM Global actively seeks opportunities to minimize our environmental impact. The ASM Global management staff at DeVos Performance Hall believes that to achieve its goals of becoming the premier venue in Michigan, it must lead not only economically, but environmentally and socially as well. The company understands that it is in a prominent position to affect the environment of Michigan. Its objective is not only to sustain the environment for its descendants, but also to rehabilitate the damage previously done.

Every effort is made to conserve resources throughout operations. The purchasing department seeks products and services of local origin and that are environmentally sound. DeVos Performance Hall’s success is monitored on an annual basis with a commitment to continual improvement. Furthermore, ASM Global strives to meet or exceed existing environmental laws and regulations, and continually seeks efficiencies in the day to day operation of the facilities that we manage.

Maintaining A Recycling Program in the Facility

Simply put, whatever is recyclable is recycled. ASM Global works with local companies and the City of Grand Rapids recycling programs to properly separate and handle all recyclable materials, ensuring reuse as their final destination. This endeavor extends to not only the ground level, but also to guests who are provided labeled containers throughout the facility to dispose of waste in their proper receptacles.

Promoting Near Term Green Energy, Water, Food, Waste and Packaging

ASM Global works with our caterer and other local organizations to sustain a program utilizing food and facility waste. This practice helps local farmers enrich the soil while reducing the need for chemical additives, which enhances local farm equity and product freshness. Additionally, we insure that our catering partners are adopting environmentally friendly utensils, serving pieces and packaging made from corn and potato starch that quickly biodegrade. From concessions to catering, all packaging and utensils are used with this policy whenever possible.

Local Network of Green Partners/Vendors

ASM Global actively seeks/contracts suppliers and vendors who make green initiatives a priority in their daily business. These suppliers include local companies dedicated to environmentally sound practices, as well as national vendors who have undertaken green/sustainable practices as an everyday objective.
