Environmental Mission Statement

Essex Experience is committed to protecting the environment, the health and safety of our employees, and the community in which we conduct our business. We are driven to seek improvements throughout our business operations to lessen our impact on the local and global environment by conserving energy, water, and other natural resources; reducing waste generation; recycling and purchasing recycled products; and reducing our use of toxic materials. Additionally, we focus our environmental efforts on pollution prevention, continual improvement and meeting or exceeding all environmental regulatory requirements.

Essex Experience is showing our strong commitment to the future of Vermont and Essex Experience with the installation of solar panels on two of our buildings in order to generate natural energy. Essex Cinemas and building two are powered by the panels. By 2019, we will be the only lifestyle center in the state to be fully powered by solar. Learn more about our solar endeavor.

We received our designation as an Environmental Partner on January 6, 2009 with the help of the Vermont Small Business Development Center and the Vermont Dept. of Environmental Conservation. We will post our progress and accomplishment on this web page. For more information about the Vermont Business Environmental Partnership program please visit http://www.vbep.org/.
