Waste Reduction
Description of Action: 
At its Franklin Lakes location, Express Scripts has a full-service cafeteria that seats approximately 500, and serves 8,000 meals per week. To reduce waste, we have purchased additional dining trays and silverware and encourage employees to use these instead of one time use food containers and utensils. Food Waste from preparation to clean-up is incorporate into a recycling program within the Cafeteria and additional receptacles are placed in Pantries supporting this initiative. The food waste program has amounted to a reduction in 120 tons of solid waste annually from the landfill a result of the food waste to compost program.

Description of Action: 
Express Scripts utilizes a building management system and space temperature schedules to control the HVAC systems, building alarms and other critical systems within its facility. This along with installation of VFD’s on all large motors helps to ensure that the facility is maximizing the efficiency of its equipment reducing energy usage. Express Scripts is also committed to upgrading its Franklin Lakes facility to energy efficient lighting, in recent years we have done the following capital improvements: • Incorporated 50% LED lighting in all newly renovated floors • Replaced all roadway and parking lot lights with LED lights, which are operated by software to ensure maximum efficiency. • Installed motion sensors in all pantries, copy rooms and janitorial areas • Changed building standard temperature from 72 -74 degrees F to 70 - 72 degrees F in winter and 74 -76 degrees F in summer. The total result of these efforts is an offset to electrical demand by an estimated 5% for lighting and 10% for heating annually ($300,000.00).
