A Map for New Hampshire’s Energy Future
By Colleen Vien
New Hampshire faces both challenges and opportunities in the transition to a reliable and affordable clean energy future. From infrastructure investments to workforce development, rising energy costs, and more, there is much to consider as the Granite State looks to increase our competitiveness and expand our energy options.
As a global outdoor lifestyle brand based in Stratham, Timberland is committed to operating our business in a responsible manner — while also doing the right thing for the community that we call home. Clean energy plays an important role in that commitment, as we strive to create a more sustainable future for our planet as well as our bottom line.
Currently, over a third of Timberland’s total energy use is powered by renewable resources — and we plan to increase that number to 50 percent renewable energy by 2020. We have also made significant energy efficiency investments at our owned and operated facilities around the globe — helping us cut energy costs by more than 30 percent in some instances. These investments help us keep our energy costs down and make economic sense for our business. It is also what our customers, investors and employees have come to expect from Timberland.
