DMI Cos. won the Medium Business category of the Green Workplace Challenge, a yearlong competition for businesses, nonprofits, municipalities, and universities to track and measure improvements in energy, water, waste, and transportation. DMI Cos.’ performance can be attributed to a few key facets of the organization’s sustainability focus.
