Green Initiatives
Being an environmentally-conscious company has long been a guiding directive of EBSCO. EBSCO has always tried to implement new initiatives that help the company operate in a more efficient and environmentally-sound manner. Our goal is to continue to grow as a company, while simultaneously making a positive impact on the environment.
Major EBSCO Green Initiatives:
Solar Power
192-panel solar arrays have been installed in two of EBSCO’s three renovated mill buildings that make up the company’s Ipswich, Massachusetts campus. The solar electrical system is expected to offset 20% to 25% of the building’s energy needs. Read WCVB Story
Recycling
EBSCO recycles cardboard, mixed paper, e.g., magazines and newspapers, (see EBSCO Missing Copy Bank information to the left) plastic bottles and cans, and promotes the use of recycled paper throughout the company.
Lighting
Light bulbs in EBSCO's Ipswich headquarters buildings have been changed from incandescent to high efficiency fluorescents, and most areas have been equipped with either timers or motion and sound sensors that shut off the lights when not occupied.
