Energy awareness helps create a culture of conservation at USPS
“We’re changing our business model and looking to save money and resources,” USPS Deputy Postmaster General Ron Stroman told employees at an event in Washington, DC, kicking off National Energy Awareness Month. “This includes a commitment to sustainability and conserving energy,” Stroman said.
“We want to position the Postal Service as a sustainability leader by creating a culture of conservation that engages our employees, customers and suppliers,” said Chief Sustainability Officer Tom Day at the event.
Since 2003, the Postal Service has reduced total facility energy use by over 25 percent, nearly the amount of energy used by 90,000 average U.S. households in a year. USPS also reduced energy intensity, which is energy use per square foot of building space, by 22.4 percent in the same time period.
