the nation’s first and oldest independent IT Security consultancy, JANUS
is a company founded on the principals of leading the way.
Today JANUS is a leader in Business Sustainability within our industry. We
believe that it is critical to reduce waste and protect the environment for this
and future generations to come.
We Are Doing
JANUS has focused on every aspect of our operations in order to make a positive
and measurable impact. Some examples of this are listed below:
corporate headquarters in Stamford, CT is an Energy Star Certified building.
To attain the Energy Star rating a program incorporating the following measures
has been instituted:
efficiency enhancement has been achieved by the replacement of incandescent and
HID lighting with energy efficient LED and CFl lighting throughout the facility.
All lighting equipment that has reached the end of its useful life is recycled.
The use of incandescent bulbs has been eliminated.
underwent a major mechanical retrofit in 2010 including new Building Management
Systems, Variable Frequency Drives, high efficiency motors anda high efficiency
consumption has been reduced and efficiency has been substantially increased
with the installation of dual flush technology sensors, high efficiency urinals,
and low flow aerators to improve efficiency greater than LEED standards.
Cleaning programs have been mapped to LEED cleaning program standards
and incorporate environmentally friendly cleaning products and procedures
including vacuum systems that consistently exceed HEPA standards. Microfiber
rags and dusters are used exclusively to reduce waste, and when appropriate,
chemicals are dispensed from a portion controlled closed dilution system.
programs for JANUS employees includes a full program for cardboard, paper, and
printer supplies including all laser and LED toner cartridges and drums
are recycled. All spent inkjet cartridges are also recycled. Remanufactured
printer supplies are sourced to capitalize on the reuse of recycled metals and
purchases are required to be Energy Star rated.
Center operations are housed in a separate, internal to the building
core facility that has its own HVAC system and is double insulated to maintain
temperature stability thereby reducing costs and environmental impact.
energy consumption has been reduced by 60% through technology upgrades
and virtualization. An added benefit of this is lower thermal loading and
decreased cooling demands.
printing technology that is Energy Star rated and produces no ozone is
utilized in the production of all JANUS proposals and collateral materials.
Proposals are printed in Black and White and double sided on recycled paper to
reduce environmental impact unless otherwise specified in the RFP. Collateral
materials are produced on an "as needed" basis thereby reducing excess
paper use and document obsolescence waste.
paper is used whenever possible and internal printing of documents is
restricted to a “required only” basis.
integral part of every JANUS office and corporate headquarters has floor to
ceiling windows throughout. Employees are encouraged to minimize the use of
Vehicle: Company vehicles used by employees to travel to and from
locations in the mid-Atlantic region get 31 mpg on the highway. Hybrid vehicles
capable of averaging 51mpg are currently under consideration.
training has been attended by multiple JANUS employees including a
Corporate Director and the CEO. Sessions have focused on best practices, policy
development and implementation.
