AIM practices green initiatives and is committed to providing goods and services that use our global resources wisely. We recycle, repurpose, and reuse as many materials as possible.
We research and utilize philanthropic and innovative tools and services in our day-to-day operations. Our exposition and meeting planners seek out meeting venues that provide green facilities. Our administrators significantly reduce the number of face-to-face board and leadership meetings with online meeting services and hosted webinars, completely eliminating travel. Our scientific and education program directors use innovative, web-based technology to more efficiently communicate with and educate an increasing global audience. Our communications team reduces mailing by providing electronic communications and purchases from vendors that ensure the paper we use originates from sustainable forests and adheres to strict environmental and socioeconomic standards.
AIM team members receive paid hours to work on volunteer activities of their choice. This gives team members a sense of pride and the ability to be passionate while helping others, and allows them to establish or strengthen their leadership skills.
AIM embraces the opportunity to give back to our community through employee and company-sponsored contributions to local charitable organizations:
AIM supports the Clean Air Act by encouraging shared transportation and offering employees telecommuting opportunities and Metrorail commuting benefits to decrease our carbon footprint.
