At Green Mountain, we’re committed to the environment inside & out. That means we get up every day thinking about how to help our customers reduce their environmental impact and trying to reduce our own impact at work and at home while we’re at it.
We are dedicated to creating a sustainable and enjoyable workplace at Green Mountain. Employees here have a passion for the environment and regularly volunteer their time and talents to make a difference at work and in our community through our employee sustainability programs.
We offer employees options for powering their homes with renewable energy and the ability to offset their carbon footprints. Employees who live in markets we serve are eligible for a special rate on Green Mountain Energy® electricity. We also offer employees incentives to install solar on their homes, and they can purchase the Nest Learning Thermostat™ and Goal Zero® products at a discount through our partnership with those companies.
All employees are invited to participate in our volunteer employee sustainability team, which organizes environmental events such as Earth Day celebrations, volunteering opportunities and educational discussions of sustainability trends and practical tips for work and home.
Our employees are responsible for expanding recycling and composting efforts company wide, as well as developing environmentally preferable printing standards, including using soy-based inks on paper made with 100% post-consumer waste and benign whitening products.
We also encourage employees to use more environmentally friendly commuting methods, such as walking, biking, scooting, carpooling, taking public transit, and using hybrid and alternatively fueled vehicles.
