Focus on Sustainability
PJM’s environmental commitment to the community is woven into how we work and the practices we support.
Our campus reflects this mindfulness, featuring electric-vehicle charging stations, myriad opportunities to recycle materials and smart building design.
PJM’s Sustainability Program reinforces the company’s environmental values and inspires innovative thinking by enabling employees to submit ideas on how the company can make the best use of its resources.
More than 120 tons of non-recyclable waste material from the PJM campus, such as food garbage, is turned into green renewable energy.
In addition, PJM practices environmentally conscious printing through the Forest Stewardship Council. PJM documents are printed on FSC- certified paper, which comes from mills that acquire wood from forests that are responsibly replanted and harvested.
PJM has been awarded the U.S. Department of Energy’s Energy Star designation for three of the five buildings on campus – the Conference and Training Center, the Service Center and the Technology Center. These buildings incorporate energy efficiency features, including smart lighting, heating and air conditioning controls and low-water flushing in the restrooms. The Energy Star designation indicates that these buildings are in the top 25th percentile of energy efficiency when compared to similar buildings nationwide.
PJM also uses lights that automatically turn off when rooms aren’t occupied, installs LED lighting where possible, reduces the wattage of lighting and employs more energy-efficient laptops.
PJM follows Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design guidelines for our facilities in support of sustainable green buildings.
