Doing our part for a greener tomorrow
We’re committed to operating in an environmentally sustainable manner
At Reliance, we believe in doing our part to provide comfort to our communities and our planet. We’re committed leaders with strong manufacturer and industry relationships, and memberships in home builders’ associations – keeping builders’ interests always at the forefront. In everything we do, we are focused on coming together to Create a More Comfortable Tomorrow. This means reducing the environmental impact of our operations and looking after those who are most vulnerable in our communities.
At Reliance™, we’re committed leaders with strong manufacturer and industry relationships, and memberships in home builders’ associations – keeping builders’ interests always at the forefront. We also play an active role in building the communities we serve through organizations like Habitat For Humanity and United Way.
We’ve partnered with One Tree Planted, a non-profit dedicated to global reforestation. In 2021, we are committed to planting approximately 10,000 trees – one tree for every 10 customers that switch to paperless billing. With 59% of our current builder customer base receiving paperless bills, we can continue to make a positive difference.
Through our annual United Way campaign, we help improve lives locally by moving people out of poverty to possibility, helping kids be all they can be, and building strong and healthy communities. In 2020, our Team Members and corporate matching raised over $714,000 for United Way and its agencies.
