On Our Environmental Impact…
CWSC, Inc. is committed to best practices for reducing its environmental impact including:
• Minimizing waste by continually evaluating operations and ensuring the highest possible efficiency.
• Favoring and investing in energy saving technologies.
• Minimizing emissions through more efficient delivery management and reduced power requirements.
• Source purchase recycled products in our administrative support activities.
• Promoting recycling to reduce our carbon footprint.
• Implementing a volunteer awareness program on the importance of reducing waste and increasing efficiency to help protect the environment.
We encourage all our volunteers, suppliers and affiliating institutions to join us in the effort to help protect our environment. Together, we can remake the world.
Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) provides organizations with the capability of computer-to-computer communication with individuals and organizations. Commonly used instead of faxing and mailing paper documents, EDI transfers the information electronically through a communication network that reduces cost, streamlines productivity and reduces environmental impact by eliminating the need for one entity to print out documents for mailing to the receiving entity.
EDI also eliminates the receiving entity from translating the data and reentering the transaction into their own system. EDI uses a standard format so that it will be easier to process incoming transferred data. Using this system will make communications more efficient. The EDI system will provide consistency, better sales and inventory management, accuracy, security and competitiveness.
CWSC uses EDI for a large number of its functions in order to conduct business with volunteers, affiliating institutions, donors, and suppliers. Our standards that may be based on mutual agreement, are designed to promote seamless capability in electronic transactions via the internet with all suppliers.
For each document sent to CWSC, we seek to transmit, within twenty-four (24) working hours of receipt, an acknowledgment that signifies receipt of the document transmitted. Similarly, when CWSC transmits documents, we expect an acknowledgment upon receipt of electronic transmission.
