(NYSE: THG) announced it has earned an ENERGY STAR certification for the fourth consecutive year and pledged continued commitment to corporate sustainability and environmentally friendly practices.

"As a world class property and casualty insurance company, we are committed to making a difference where we live and work, through charitable contributions and by managing our company and our operations in an environmentally responsible way," said Jay B. Johnson, vice president, service operations. "We invest in green technologies, recycling and waste management programs because we are committed to being a leader in environmental stewardship, reducing our corporate carbon footprint and our impact on the environment."

The Hanover's investments in green technologies include:

  • The installation of new, energy-efficient lighting, heating, and cooling systems including an ice storage system.
  • A company-wide "green cleaning" program which reduces the presence of potentially hazardous chemicals in the workplace
  • The purchase of certified wind energy to offset 100 percent of the electricity used on its Worcester, Mass. campus, keeping the air cleaner, lessening the impact on the ozone layer
  • The installation of ENERGY STAR white roofs to reduce heating and cooling requirements on both of its campuses in Worcester, Mass. and Howell, Michigan.

In 2012, The Hanover's combined conservation efforts and green technologies helped the company reduce its consumption of electricity by more than 48,000 kilowatt hours, gas by approximately 6 million cubic feet, and water by 1,884,343 gallons, compared to the prior year.

The Hanover has also increased its commitment to a company-wide recycling program. Last year, with enthusiastic participation by its employees, the company increased its total volume of recycled materials to 44 percent of its total waste output. This includes 201 tons of paper, 5.5 tons of cardboard, and 4.2 tons of electronic equipment. In addition, the company collected more than 33 tons of waste for conversion into compost.
