Working closely with our printing company provides an opportunity to produce a totally carbon neutral print job by replacing the entire carbon footprint that the job created. Our printer's custom computer software calculates the carbon tonnage produced by each of our jobs from the point a tree is cut down for paper to delivery of the final product. They then neutralize the carbon emissions of each project by planting Useful Trees. Useful Trees are not likely to be cut down because the value of their fruit, nuts or leaves is worth at least four times more to the planter than the timber itself. Additionally, our corporate buildings have been recognized for being LEED gold certified. We believe health resonates from the planet to the person, and back again. So we do our best for both.
We are avid supporters of the Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA), which works to raise awareness of PAH at both a national level, with activities such as the Physician/Allied Healthcare Professional Medical Education Seminars and International Patient Conferences, and at a local level through patient support groups and fundraisers. We donate money, and our employees often participate in walkathons and other activities. We are also a charter member of the PHA's Corporate Committee, which offers guidance to the PHA on various issues related to market dynamics as they affect patients with PAH, and drug access issues. It’s all in the service of helping the patients.

That's why our employees are encouraged to donate their time to local communities. In fact, we recently held a Community Service Day, in which employees from Lung Biotechnology and our parent company, United Therapeutics, spent the day lending a helping hand to various organizations. The objective of this event was to help make a difference in the lives of those in need in our area.
Here are some of the activities in which employees participated:
In addition, our parent company, United Therapeutics, donated useful supplies and laptop computers to participating schools and organizations.
At a recent sales meeting, we worked with AnySoldier.com to create care packages for active servicemen and women serving in Afghanistan. The organization shared letters from soldiers stationed overseas, which provided details about their daily challenges and included specific requests for basic items to help make their deployment more bearable. We worked together as a team to respond to these requests with letters of our own and care packages for the troops. We also wore AnySoldier.com t-shirts to raise awareness for the organization and to honor soldiers serving our country.
