DOE recognizes Sprint for energy efficiency

Sponsored by

Sprint was recognized by the Department of Energy (DOE) for its achievements in the Better Buildings Challenge. DOE Better Buildings Challenge partners are demonstrating progress toward achieving an aggregate 20 percent energy savings in 10 years, with annual energy savings of 2.5 percent or $300 million.

Sprint joined the Better Buildings Challenge last year to signal commitment to improve its business operations with energy efficiency and the environment in mind.

“Sprint is unique in that it has committed to multiple DOE Showcase Projects,” said Gene Agee, Sprint vice president of Procurement and Real Estate. “While substantial work has been completed, more energy efficient projects are in development. To demonstrate Sprint’s full commitment to the program, we are implementing network, commercial and IT data center projects that reflect the unique nature of energy efficiency for each area.”

Sprint's portfolio consists of more than 2,000 buildings and 50,000 network sites. Since 2007, Sprint has decreased total energy use by 19 percent. This achievement is a result of Sprint’s creating a cross-functional energy management team and holding business units accountable to corporate energy-reduction goals. These changes led to employee and vendor performance goals, which contributed to the energy reduction. In addition, Sprint realized energy savings by implementing more energy-efficient technologies and eliminating underused properties and redundant systems.
