How We Think Green

Recycle Bin

Recycle

  • Recycling bins on every floor make it easy for employees to recycle glass, plastic and paper
  • A federally-certified outside recycler handles our surplus of IT equipment
  • A sweep resulted in 16 pallets of equipment being recycled
Thermostat

Reduce

  • On weekdays, air conditioning and building lights are shut down from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. to reduce energy costs
  • During weekends, building lights and air conditioning are automatically turned down all day to save energy
  • By the removal of subfloor cable lines, it has freed up space for greater airflow and more efficient operation of air conditioning
