October is National Energy Awareness Month

DPMG Ron Stroman kicks off National Energy Awareness Month.

We’re fighting for the soul of the Postal Service,” said DPMG Ron Stroman. “We’re changing our business model and looking to save money and resources. This includes a commitment to sustainability and conserving energy.”
Stroman’s remarks highlighted a ceremony held this week at USPS headquarters kicking off National Energy Awareness Month.
During October, USPS officials will mark efforts to help save energy, cut costs and raise public awareness. These include the “Go Green” Forever stamps encouraging Americans to participate in low- and no-cost ways to go green.

Sustainability performance goals include:
-- Reducing facility energy use 30 percent by 2015.
-- Cutting vehicle petroleum use 20 percent by 2015.
-- Increasing vehicle alternative fuel use 10 percent annually by 2015.
-- Lowering greenhouse gas emissions 20 percent by 2020.
