At IPS green thinking is a part of our everyday work culture. We believe passionately about being mindful of our impact on our environment. Every day we strive to conserve power, do our best to reduce, reuse, recycle, and rethink! Walking a sustainable path is important to us and we are humbled and excited to be recognized for yet another year!
