Global Mobility Solutions has a strong commitment to environmental conservation to help to protect our environment for future generations. We make a conscientious effort to purchase recycled and environmentally friendly products – from our marketing materials to our office supplies. All discarded office documents are shredded and recycled. Our employees voluntarily developed a recycling program for all other recyclables, where they take turns bringing them to the city’s drop off center. Additionally, GMS recycles all of its printer’s toner cartridges and light bulbs. GMS partners with vendors who provide environmentally friendly alternatives for packing and transportation of household goods, are environmentally conscious, and follow FIDI outlined procedures.
GMS and its employees are actively involved in the community. We coordinate and participate in several charity events each year. Some of the organizations we have work with include the Move For Hunger, Phoenix Rescue Mission, the Child’s Crisis Center, St. Mary’s Food Bank, the City of Hope, and the American Cancer Society.
