Sprint Expands Environmental Commitment With Energy Management System In Retail Stores

Sprint’s next retail energy savings effort will come from the installation of LED lighting in more than 600 retail stores. The project is estimated to reduce electrical usage by 2.8 million kWh per year.

Sprint continues to improve its business operations with energy efficiency and the environment in mind. Sprint recently announced it would join the Department of Energy Better Buildings program. Launched by President Obama in 2011, the Better Buildings Challenge brings together corporations, universities, municipalities, and other national leaders to make significant commitments to energy efficiency that reduce waste and cut energy costs. To join the program, organizations must commit to an energy savings goal during the next two to five years.

Sprint has committed to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by an absolute 20 percent by 2017. Sprint is the first and only U.S. telecom company to publicly announce an absolute greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction goal and is one of 30 companies to be named to the elite World Wildlife Fund Climate Savers program. Sprint is also the only telecom provider in the top 50 on the 2013 EPA Green Power Partners Fortune 500 list, coming in at #13. Earlier this month, Frost & Sullivan awarded Sprint its 2013 North American Award for Green Excellence.
