Our People
1. EMP deployment by establishment of a baseline for energy usage in a 12-month period in order to address seasonal trending when possible. The baseline period is defined as January 2011 to December 2011. If a baseline is not possible to establish, we will make attempts to measure what we can and strive to make improvements when possible.
Baseline: 
Energy Consumption: The baseline is 206,230 Kilowatt Hours consumed
Scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions: The baseline is 142 metric tons scope 2 impact
Waste management and recycling: Tons of recycling material picked up by recycling company for netMEDIA's facilities - The baseline is 5,800 pounds of recycled material. Tons of trash picked up by garbage company for netMEDIA's facilities - This metric is not currently available. We will make reasonable efforts to obtain this information and set appropriate goals
2. Working off of these baselines, netMEDIA has set one goal for each category. Progress will be tracked on an annual basis.

Goals will be set by netMEDIA senior management, and follow the format below. A major challenge in setting these goals is the location of our facilities in multi-tenant buildings; therefore, measurements are based on the acts of all tenants as a whole, which can significantly affect our ability to accurately project and meet our EMP objectives. We have taken this into account and will work to meet our goals.
Goals: 
Energy Consumption: Reduce consumption of electricity 3% by April 2013
Scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions: Scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions are tied directly to energy consumption for netMEDIA. Therefore, any reduction in energy consumption will equally reduce scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions
Waste management and recycling: Increase pounds of recycled material 3% by April 2013. Waste volume data is not currently available to netMEDIA. We will make reasonable efforts to obtain this information and set appropriate goals
3. We will share our conservation plans with all employees. Each employee will have access to the EMP and acknowledge that he or she will support it through actions such as making sure paper is recycled, trash is minimized, etc.
4. We will form a committee that meets quarterly. This committee will review the progress of reduction initiatives against the EMP goals; discuss any need for redirection, etc.
5. We expect all of our suppliers to act in an environmentally friendly manner in accordance with guidelines similar to those contained in this Environmental Management Plan.
