Our pillars of impact are rooted in one concept: building healthy ecosystems. We have created an ecosystem of belonging for our people, an ecosystem of sustainable manufacturing practices, and an ecosystem of transparency in our policies. Our ESG program aims to center our core values to better design and build impact technology with purpose.
RK Mission Critical is constantly evolving to find methods that reduce pollution, conserve and reuse resources, and minimize our climate impact. This is planet protection, with purpose.
Social responsibility in our products, plants, and people is at the heart of our work. This is investing in our people, with purpose.
Transparent policies and procedures cultivate a culture where safety and accountability are prioritized. This is creating culture, with purpose.
Designing and manufacturing impact technology comes with its unique footprint. We recognize our role in being conscience of climate challenges and we are committed to reducing waste in our manufacturing facilities, promoting awareness of environmental challenges in our field, and innovating to protect our people, our processes, and our planet.
We have a firm commitment to reusing material where possible and encourage all of our partners to engage in the same practice. On a small scale, the wood spools that hold all the wire we use in our products are returned to each of our vendors for reuse. This prevents significant landfill waste from a product that is recyclable. On a larger scale, one of the core successes of our business is the reuse of shipping containers that would otherwise end up in landfills or in our oceans. Our star product line, the DISRUPTOR 2000, reuses 40-foot shipping containers by working with our sister business, RK Steel, to fit the frame perfectly for our products. The shipping container is turned into critical infrastructure for cryptocurrency mining operations and is designed specifically to run on traditional and renewable energy sources. Reusing shipping containers helps eliminate building waste, prevents disruption to the natural environment where the project lives, uses less energy and resources than a traditional build, and lasts longer.
Reusing just one shipping container can help save over 3,500 kilograms of steel. To date, RK Mission Critical has reused over 200 shipping containers.
RK Mission Critical’s values of inclusion, collaboration, ingenuity, and innovation are embedded into everything we do and into all the people we work alongside. We work hard to create an ecosystem where all people belong and thrive. Our company is proud to report we are above the benchmarks on employment for percentage of women, veterans, and minority workers in the field of construction and manufacturing.
We take pride in ensuring any unskilled laborer hired into our company receives the training and education necessary to become a skilled laborer within the first 90 days of employment.
Transparent leadership and strong values cultivate a responsible culture of safety and accountability. We are proud to share our Corporate Code of Conduct that demonstrates how we model our corporate values with purpose.
RK Mission Critical is built on the innovation, drive, and curiosity of our people. We grow our talent from the ground up and recruit individuals with proven track records to serve as stewards in leadership all with an eye toward social responsibility.
