Green Initiative

Green is not just another color at Springfield Technology Park. The Park was an early adopter of facility management practices that are energy efficient and that promote sustainable business practices.

The most visible sign of sustainability is the solar panel array that provides renewable energy to the Park and its tenant organizations. By doing so the complex is reducing its carbon footprint while setting an example of how technology can contribute to a new economic lanscape in the future.

The Park is also a great location for new or emerging green businesses and possesses LEED Certified staff.

Other energy efficiencies in the operation may not be as obvious - automated building control system creating efficiencies and reducing energy costs, vendors being evaluated for their "green" credentials and the utilization of green cleaning practices - all making for a forward-looking, and acting environment.

And, for those green businesses just getting started, the Tech Park’s Scibelli Enterprise Center is a member of ACTION – the Association of Cleantech Incubators of New England. This affiliation enables young cleantech firms (from energy efficiency to energy technology) access to a regional network of expertise, equipment, and venture capitalists. The Springfield Technology Park is also a member of the New England Clean Energy Council.
