ENERGY CONSERVATION

We believe that it makes business sense to be environmentally responsible, and we make every effort to reduce energy use when and where appropriate to do so. We are continually striving to reduce our carbon footprint.

ENERGY CONSERVATION

Our efforts to reduce energy consumption throughout the Company include:

  • Fremont, California corporate office: Occupancy sensors for lighting that turn off lights when there is no movement in the room, an HVAC control system that allows for efficient management of air conditioning and heating usage, and installation of Energy Star appliances
  • Houston, Texas corporate office: The office is a LEED certified building, which means the building is designed to, among other things, (a) reduce waste sent to landfills; (b) conserve energy and water; (c) be healthier and safer for occupants; and (d) reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions
  • Houston, Texas Distribution Center: The HVAC system is managed by a centralized BAS system
  • New Bedford, Massachusetts, manufacturing facility: a 1.3 mega-watt solar rooftop system allows the facility to be almost completely self-sufficient, producing its own clean energy, without emissions, and significantly reducing our energy costs
  • Remote transportation or hub locations: We encourage employees to turn off lights and power down utilities to reduce usage of electricity and/ or natural gas consumption
  • Stores: Each of our new or remodeled stores receive the latest and most efficient lighting products, which reduce energy usage by about 50% per light fixture

Waste

WASTE DIVERSION

We have been working diligently to reduce, re-use, and recycle in all our stores, distribution centers, hubs, and offices, in an effort to curb waste generation. We will continue to seek to find new ways to eliminate or divert waste created by our operations.

LANDFILL DIVERSION AND RECYCLING

Our efforts to curb waste generation and to reduce, re-use and recycle include:

  • Encouraging recycling of paper, plastic, and cardboard at our stores, distribution centers, hubs, and offices
  • Launching a new test program using our trucks to haul recyclable materials such as cardboard and poly bags from our stores to our various Distribution Centers for bundling and recycling
  • Donating old store fixtures (furniture) from closed or remodeled stores to Habitat for Humanity, rather than being sent to a landfill
  • Composting and using reusable cups, dishes and silverware instead of disposable varieties in the cafeteria at our Fremont corporate office, with no increase in overall water consumption

REDUCTION OF FOSSIL FUELS

Investigating solar, wind, and other renewable energy technologies is part of our regular process, and we are committed to implementing these technologies when and where they make sense to do so.

OUR COMPANY FLEET

Our vehicle fleet gives use many opportunities to reduce our impact on the environment. We operate mostly newer vehicles in our fleet and most of the larger trucks utilize newer engine technologies, which are specially designed to reduce harmful emissions of both greenhouse gases and particulate matter. Our older vehicles are smaller vehicles (Sprinter vans and smaller cutaway variety trucks) which, because of their smaller size, get better fuel mileage than the larger vehicles. Wherever possible, we utilize these smaller, more fuel-efficient vehicles in order to reduce our fuel consumption.

In addition:

  • We do our best to ensure that all our vehicles, regardless of size, are well-maintained and functioning at peak performance.
  • We design our routes to limit drive time wherever possible. Drivers may not deviate from their routes without approval. During periods of decreased shipping volume, routes may be combined in order to reduce overall miles being driven or, during extremely slow volume periods, product may be shipped via common carriers or routes may be canceled altogether.
  • We consolidate routes for our over-the-road fleet in order to limit miles driven and designing routes based upon volume being shipped.
  • We actively discourage fleet drivers from letting vehicles idle when not moving, and our newer vehicles are equipped with sensors that will automatically shut down the engine if the vehicle idles for more than a few minutes.
  • We use airflow streamlining technologies such as nose cones in our last mile fleet and wheel skirts on our over-the-road trailers, which reduce fuel consumption by as much as 10-15%.
  • We have on-board computer technology in our last mile fleet that enables us to monitor and manage each driver’s driving habits and MPG performance, allowing us to make adjustments that have generated approximately 10% fuel improvement.

CARPOOLING

We recognize that carpooling reduces greenhouse gases as well as saves employees money associated with the commute to work. Therefore, we encourage and incentivize our employees to carpool or use public transportation whenever possible. As an example, we offer a free shuttle to and from two train stations near our corporate offices in Fremont, California.

ENVIRONMENTALLY-CONSCIOUS PRACTICES

We are committed to continuing to reduce our environmental impact and to help create a more sustainable tomorrow. We strive to utilize, and encourage our employees to employ, environmentally-conscious practices whenever we can.

SUSTAINABLE ELEMENTS IN OUR PRODUCTS

Consumers today are more aware of how their clothing is produced than ever, and they are looking for innovative, sustainable and environmentally friendly solutions when they make purchases. We are actively looking for ways to utilize more sustainable elements in our products, including the launch of the new Made to Matter product line at Jos. A. Bank.

DRY CLEANING PRACTICES

We use Green Earth® for dry cleaning our tuxedo rental garments for Men’s Wearhouse, Jos. A. Bank, and Moores. We were among the first large-scale service providers to use Green Earth® in our facilities, instead of a petroleum or “perchlorethylene (perc)” based dry cleaning solvent. Green Earth® is a nontoxic, silicon solution which is more environmentally friendly. The Green Earth® silicone solvent is an inert by-product of sand and it has been used in many consumer hygiene and beauty products for years. Over the past decade, this decision has kept over 35 million garments from being dry cleaned in petroleum or “perc”.

CHARGING STATIONS

We provide Level 2 charging stations for electric vehicles for our employees at our Fremont, California corporate office and a Level 1 charging station for employees at our Houston, Texas corporate office.

USE OF PAPER

We are working to reduce our reliance on paper for operations.

  • We have eliminated the use of paper in the picking process in our retail and ecommerce distribution centers and instead use handheld RF scanners.
  • Our delivery hubs are in the process of implementing new scanning and tracking technologies to eliminate the use of paper logs and manifests.
