BEFORE JOINING PHAROS, Dale brought his energy and creative vision to Kodak (while dreaming of being a professional baseball player). Author of over 160 US Patents, Dale has a knack for translating technology into the language of business, and vice versa. He has helped lead Pharos in exciting new directions, from bringing fresh clarity to the Pharos brand to being the driving force behind the company’s recent recognition as a certified B Corp.

An avid explorer, Dale has hiked all 46 High Peaks in the Adirondack Mountains and savors the solitude of wilderness settings while camping, hiking and canoeing with his wife, three boys and friends. His passion for sustainability is driven by a strong sense of stewardship and is evident in his approach to his varied personal pursuits.

“Pharos values my passion for learning and creativity, for applying the skills I have acquired to a new set of challenges. I enjoy the process of growing the business and the flexibility afforded to me to get it done.”

Pharos, a Business Leader sponsor of the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE), has joined the effort with AASHE and Root Solutions to reduce paper waste on college campuses. The program, called “Turning the Page on Campus Paper Use,” provides training, guidance and technology to help schools implement behavior-based paper reduction initiatives across their campus, starting with the 2018 spring semester.

Participating institutions received training and resources at the 2017 AASHE conference in October. At the end of the 2018 academic year, AASHE and its partners will help these organizations measure the impact of their campaigns and publish a guidebook of best practices and lessons learned for the higher education community.

Throughout the course of this program, Pharos is lending its support by providing free access to Beacon Analytics to participating institutions. Beacon will collect printing activity data across campus to establish an objective baseline upon which to measure progress at the end of the campaign.

Excessive printing “contributes to a range of environmental problems and also comes at a significant financial cost to colleges and universities,” said Meghan Fay Zahniser, AASHE’s Executive Director. Pharos is happy to lend our expertise and technology to help this initiative succeed.

Let us help you establish more mindful and sustainable printing habits in your organization. You’ll be surprised to see how much more efficient your printing operations can be and how much money you can save your organization every year. Start the conversation today!
