Why sustainability and corporate responsibility are so important? THEY ARE IN OUR DNA
Crane is committed to serving as an eco-friendly partner that continuously seeks to improve the environmental performance of our products. Our machines are manufactured with 40% recycled material, are at least 82% recyclable at end of life, feature reduced energy consumption up to 41% during off-peak times. They include a waste reduction cup sensor allowing the use of your own mug, jug or bottle, and our brewer uses up to 15% less ingredients while still serving better drink quality, and reduces both waste and “paper out” service calls.
Each year, employees of Crane Merchandising Systems sponsor donations through a charitable trust called The Crane Fund for Widows and Children, which was established in 1914 by the children of founder, R.T. Crane. The purpose of this charitable trust is to create positive impact for the under-served in areas Crane has business units.
The philanthropy of Crane doesn’t end with the communities in which Crane operates, but also extends to former employees. R.T. Crane said, “a loyal employee gives something besides his labor and the employer should recognize that fact.” Two years after his death, the children of R.T. Crane established The Crane Fund to provide financial assistance to eligible former Crane associates. This serves as reminder of legacy and lesson in the power of individual leadership and responsibility.
