Energy Commitment

Since our earliest beginnings, we here at Management and Engineering Services have sought to minimize our corporate energy footprint. Through the active training and participation of our employees, MES has successfully instilled a culture of energy conservation throughout the company. Over the decades, some of our energy-management initiatives have included the following:

  • Since 2006, MES has maintained a zero carbon footprint through the purchase of wind energy credits from Community Energy.
  • MES has earned and maintained ISO 50001 certification since 2010.
  • In 2011, MES created our Energy Management System (EnMS) software. This system has allowed us to track and report our energy-management performance, while identifying key areas for improvement.
  • In 2014, MES installed a bike rack, which has effectively encouraged several of our employees to leave their cars at home and bike to work each day.
  • In 2015, MES replaced all overhead incandescent lightbulbs with LED and T8 lightbulbs throughout our entire facility. Light and motion sensors have been installed to minimize the use of electricity both inside and outside our headquarters building.
  • In 2016, MES installed an advanced climate control system that allows us to monitor and control our building environment, both on site and via remote control.
  • In 2017, MES installed an electric car charging station for employees with electric vehicles.
  • Since mid-2018, MES employees have been required to power-off all computers and ancillary equipment at the close of each business day.
  • As a matter of policy, MES now replaces all defunct appliances with ENERGY STAR compliant equipment.

We here at MES are extremely proud of our efforts to minimize our carbon footprint. We remain attentive to new technologies and other opportunities for continued improvement.
