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.
Recycling and Diverting Waste
Tons of non-recyclable waste material from the PJM campus, such as food garbage, is turned into more than 36,000 kWh of green renewable energy through a trash-to-steam program.
About three-quarters of a ton of organic food waste generated on the PJM campus each month is sent directly to a local composting yard.
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’s buildings incorporate energy-efficient features, including smart lighting, heating and air conditioning controls and low-water flushing in the restrooms.
PJM buildings use special daylight-harvesting sensors to gauge the brightness outside and automatically adjust indoor lights, making the buildings more energy efficient. 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.
