Staples Reduces Energy Costs 26% at Warehouse
At its Coppell Fulfillment Center near Dallas, Texas, Staples deployed an “Eco-Treasure Hunt” program to identify cost-effective ways to save energy in the 245,000-sq-foot warehouse. Staples then implemented a number of efficiency measures, including installing LEDs in loading docks and installing highly efficient fans.
These strategies have cut the Coppell Fulfillment Center’s energy costs by 26 percent annually and saved more than $65,000 on energy bills. Staples is now implementing these strategies at other fulfillment centers across the country.
Through the Better Buildings Challenge, Staples has committed to reducing energy intensity by 25 percent in more than 1,700 of its buildings in the next 10 years. To date, Staples has improved the energy efficiency of 800 facilities by more than 10 percent.
