EPA recognizes Staples for renewable efforts

Posted 10/14/13

BOSTON – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has recognized Staples Inc. and 23 other organizations for their achievements in advancing the nation’s renewable electricity market.

According to a news release, Framingham, Mass.-based Staples was recognized for Sustained Excellence under EPA’s Green Power Partnership, a voluntary program where partner organizations work with EPA experts to reduce the environmental impacts of conventional electricity use. Staples has been a member of the program since 2002.

The EPA said that Staples maximizes its energy efficiency and use of renewable energy throughout its more than 1,800 stores, distribution centers and warehouses nationwide. Earlier in 2013, Staples increased its companywide green-power use from 80 percent to 100 percent through a combination of green-power purchases and on-site generation. Staples is using more than 635 million kilowatt-hours annually, an increase of approximately 119 kWh from 2012. •
