We’re proud to engage our associates in our sustainability efforts through our [email protected] programs. Each year, more than 150 associates participate in our company gardens, attending garden workshops and harvesting over 5,000 lbs. of produce with help from our community partner, The Trustees.
As the title sponsor of the Bluebikes, we’re committed to expanding public bike sharing in MetroBoston as a safe and sustainable public transportation option. Since 2018, we’ve doubled the size of the system by adding 200 stations and 4,000 bikes.
We support five community solar farms in Hopedale and Mendon. These projects have increased the amount of solar generated power in Massachusetts by 13% and reduced carbon emissions by an estimated 6,300 metric tons, the equivalent of taking 1,300 cars off the road.
