Energy champions at every Staples facility drive superior energy management practices. They are supported with ongoing education and training programs that motivate all employees to function as good environmental stewards. Additional help is provided by Staples professional engineers who regularly visit top-energy performing facilities to note best practices and share them throughout the Staples network.
Staples is in the process of rolling out a national communication campaign to highlight ENERGY STAR as a key component of the Staples Energy and Sustainability Strategy. Retail stores are receiving banners (interior and exterior) and posters to educate associates and customers on the ENERGY STAR program. In addition, Staples:
-- Developed our own icon for energy efficiency. Wattson is a 6-foot tall fluorescent light character designed to inspire ongoing explorations of new ways to save energy both at work and at home.
-- Ten regional kick-off meetings were held across the United States and Canada to launch the Staples NAD Energy Reduction program.
-- Two videos were produced to provide an overview of Staples ?Green Commitment? and the fundamentals of ENERGY STAR.
-- CEO, Ron Sargent, sent a personal letter congratulating each of the 140 facilities awarded the ENERGY STAR this year.
