Applied® Goes Green
Green Product Selection
Our business operations don’t just impact the environment every day – they depend on it. That’s why Applied® upholds a commitment to environmental sustainability.
For us, “going green” means so much more than offering a vast selection of eco-friendly MRO products. It means advising our customers on how to reduce their overall environmental impact. And, it means being a responsible corporate citizen by implementing greener practices in our own operations.
Going green can make all the difference. Make sure you have the right products and knowledge in place to conserve resources and energy. Doing so can help lower operational costs, create a safer working environment, comply with government policies, and generate positive publicity for your business.
We care about your needs and the environment’s.
Supplying more than 6 million products from over 4,000 manufacturers, Applied® is nearby and ready to provide you with product alternatives that are bio-based, energy efficient, and made with recycled material. Look for the eco-friendly icon while browsing our product catalog and website.
