American Home Shield Practices Sound And Responsible Environmental Stewardship

April 22, 2011 6:00 PM EDT

At ServiceMaster, it is our responsibility to do our best every day to practice and promote sound and responsible environmental stewardship. In every great brand and functional group of our company, associates on every level are working to find ways to put that responsibility to work – whether it is with a customer, a partner, in the community or with a colleague.

Last year we showcased many of our company's initiatives and how they were implemented. This year those initiatives continue with great success. But we haven’t stopped looking to implement more great initiatives to increase our environmental stewardship.

Below are updates on what’s new and still meeting with success at American Home Shield.

American Home Shield is finding ways to grow the business and strengthen its connection with its customers through more environmentally conscious outreach such as e-mail. Also, all printing vendors for the real estate business are now required to be certified by the Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC), meaning the wood used in the production of these paper products is not the result of clear-cutting. It also means the printers use soy-based inks, which are less harmful to the environment. AHS also encourages its customers to be responsible by placing the "Please Recycle" logo on all of its direct mail pieces.

American Home Shield recently kicked off its second annual Live Green Save Green campaign to help home owners adopt more energy efficient practices, just in time for the summer heat that affects so many of its customers. By announcing the availability of $25,000 in giveaways, and encouraging supporters to join the awareness day challenge called “Three Degrees of Preparation” on June 1, AHS expects to create awareness and further increase its 5,000-strong member base. Created in 2010, Live Green Save Green centers around, an online social community for homeowners and enthusiasts to learn and share strategies on reducing home energy consumption.
