OWC Thinks Green
OWC believes that environmental stewardship is not only the right thing to do for future generations; it also makes good economic sense. OWC has worked tirelessly to build sustainable practices into all levels of our business operations.

Since 2003, OWC has worked to extend this approach to its business operations, with the result that the company currently recycles 97 percent of its solid waste materials, received LEED® Platinum Certification by the Green Building Certification Institute in 2010, and in 2015 OWC reached its goal of generating more power than it consumes.
