Our Sustainability

Environmental Sustainability

at Adam’s Specialty Products

Without Mother Nature, our business wouldn’t exist.

So as we grow, we want her to grow with us.

Much of the materials for our animal enclosure products come from oak and ash trees, which we source sustainably and locally in the beautiful forests of central Wisconsin.

We’ve also taken steps to improve our methods of sustainable energy consumption, adding solar panels to the top of our production facilities.

Our Sustainability Practices

Better Forestry Today. Better Forests Tomorrow.

Deforestation has been a concern for decades. In fact, since 1990, we’ve lost over 420 million hectares of forest due to human tampering. And even though deforestation has decreased over the last three decades, there’s still work to be done.

ASP’s footprint may be relatively small on a global scale, but we believe in the power of collective action. Together, we can restore balance to our precious ecosystems and ensure a thriving future for generations.

Giving Back to Our Forests

In central Wisconsin, we maintain and care for 275 acres of wetlands in accordance with Wisconsin DNR and Managed Forest Law regulations. Here, we carefully select timber from a rotating crop of trees, giving the younger trees time and room for growth.

Our sustainable forestry practices have allowed us to create beautiful consumer products while also replenishing the areas we source from.

Stopping the Emerald Ash Borer

The emerald ash borer is an invasive insect species that has killed millions of ash trees across North America. A major problem is, these insects are in abundance and very hard to track and eradicate.

Here in Wisconsin, the DNR reported (in 2022) that Emerald ash borers are known to be present in 66 of the state’s 72 counties. We work with the EAB Network to prevent this dangerous insect from spreading to more ash trees in Wisconsin and across the nation.

Solar Panels Harness the Power of the Sun

Solar Panels For Cleaner Energy

In 2009, we installed rooftop solar panels at our headquarters in Neenah, WI, to further reduce our environmental impact.

The Sun is Earth’s most abundant source of energy, providing us with 173,000 watts of solar energy each second. While we harvest only a minuscule amount of this energy, our use of solar panels has contributed to less greenhouse gas emissions, less water usage and pollution, and an overall lower carbon footprint.

Protecting Our Planet. Together.

We recognize that our sustainability practices alone won’t save our forests. But we also know that an increasing number of companies are playing their part in natural preservation.

We’re proud to be a part of this environmentally conscious group. We strive each day to decrease our negative impact on the planet because together, and only together, can we sustain a healthier planet for generations to come.
