Staples' Green Initiatives

Energy efficiency and carbon footprint

With a large portfolio of facilities and vehicles, Staples recognizes the impacts of its operational energy usage and related carbon emissions. Reducing these impacts has been a cornerstone of our sustainability initiative for many years. As a result, we’ve reduced our electricity intensity by 16% and our total carbon emissions by 39% since 2010.

Staples energy management program is comprehensive, focusing on technological, behavioral and process-based solutions across our buildings and fleet. We leverage energy efficiency programs as well as incorporate renewable energy into our business assets — all with the aim of decreasing energy use and carbon emissions.

Additionally, we’ve taken the following measures:

  • Converting lighting to lower wattage using more efficient fixtures, lamps and ballasts, and also installing lighting motion sensors for occupancy and daylight harvesting.
  • Installing energy management systems for lighting and variable speed drives on HVAC equipment, air compressors and conveyors.
  • Participating in energy consumption demand response programs.
  • Signing the WRI Renewable Energy Buyers Principles and the American Business Act on Climate Pledge to signal our support for increasing renewable energy and reducing climate impacts.
