The work we do at Oasys Water is focused on providing fresh water resources for industrial applications around the globe. On a smaller scale we take pride in giving back through volunteering activities and fundraising, furthering our mission to create a better, more sustainable planet.
As a sustainability-focused company, we strive to make as little impact as possible in our daily operations. Along with participating in various recycling and reuse programs, our office even uses low-impact corn-based paper. We encourage our employees to minimize their printing and actively support the use of public transportation through incentive programs.
Many members of our Team prefer to take environmentally friendly transportation alternatives to our Boston offices. That’s why we’re proud to support local, sustainable transportation like Hubway. In 2015 alone, Team Oasys rode 752 miles and offset 501 pounds of CO2.
Along with volunteering as an organization and maintaining sustainable office practices, individual members of Team Oasys volunteer their time outside of the workplace.
In 2012, one of our Process Engineers, Leah, became involved with Saha Global, an organization that works to empower female entrepreneurs by helping bring clean water and electricity to rural communities in Ghana and Nicaragua. Team Oasys showed support by helping fund Leah’s service trip to Ghana in 2014. Oasys was also a sponsor for Saha Global’s Annual Benefit in 2013 and 2015.
Since 2013, Team Oasys has dedicated one full day to volunteering in the Greater Boston community. For the last two years, Oasys has worked closely with The Esplanade Association to help preserve the Esplanade area along the Charles River.
In July 2015, Oasys Water returned to the banks of the Charles River for its third annual Volunteer Day. Team Oasys had the pleasure of volunteering with The Esplanade Association, an amazing organization filled with dedicated staff and knowledgeable horticulturalists. Oasys was excited to work with The Esplanade Association again, especially due to their newly implemented “Go Blue” initiative that focused on protecting one of the park’s most prominent features: water. Clad in matching blue shirts, Team Oasys spent the morning removing invasive species from the bank of the Charles, picking up rubbish throughout the park, raking fallen leaves, and painting park benches.
At the beginning of August 2014, the whole company came together for the second annual Volunteer Day. Team Oasys worked with The Esplanade Association and distributed over 28 yards of mulch and removed invasive plant species from the riverside.
