Natoma Technologies

Natoma Technologies is an information technology consulting firm and systems integrator that has been certified by the Green Business Bureau. In 2015, Natoma Technologies took an in-depth look at their operations to understand their impact on the environment. As a result, they created a Green Team to engage their employees and track their progress in reducing their carbon footprint. They set purchasing policies such as committing to buy recycled or reused office furniture, ENERGY STAR equipment, remanufactured toner cartridges, and post-consumer paper products. As a company that uses a high number of computers, they set all computers to automatically hibernate and shut off after a certain amount of inactivity. They upgraded a number of older T12 lights to T8/T5 fluorescent lamps, and now over 50% of their light bulbs are energy efficient, with most being motion-activated. Furthermore, to cut down on travel carbon emissions, they utilize video conferencing, have preferred parking for carpools and hybrid vehicles, and offer the ability for employees to work remotely. Natoma Technologies shares their green business practices with clients and various agencies across the state to influence the community and inspire positive change.
