Welcome Our New York City Go Green ERG

POSTED UNDER Go Green Employee Resource Groups

The New York City offices are happy to announce the launch of the NYC Go Green Employee Resource Group! Go Green is a team of innovative leaders devoted to creating a more sustainable environment. Together we strive to build awareness and engagement among Macy’s employees. 

The executive sponsors of Go Green include Leslie Winick, VP/Facilities Finance, and Steve Hochfeld, VP/Store Operations. Both bring a wealth of knowledge and experience around implementing effective green processes in Macy’s, including recycling and energy conservation.

Two years ago, their teams helped Macy’s pioneer the retail industry by converting to black recyclable hangers for all new merchandise receipts. In 2014, 6,071 tons of hangers were recycled (and diverted from landfills). The teams also worked on an initiative that supports the reuse of store fixtures by either re-distributing fixtures to stores or donating them to third-party organizations, such as a courthouse clothing center and a veterans’ museum (17,000 fixtures were re-used in 2014). Non-reusable fixtures are recycled, resulting in 300,000 lbs of recycled metal each year. Read more about fixture recycling here.

Join or start a Go Green ERG to learn more about the actions Macy’s is taking and how you can be involved. Network cross-functionally, expand leadership and engage in initiatives aimed at making a measureable difference for the company and the planet.
