Implementing Green Standards
The opening of Signet’s new Dallas Support Center in 2018 underscored our commitment to environmental stewardship with a wide range of green building features. Over the last five years, we have been developing new standards to increase the efficiency of our spaces and environmental awareness among our team members. This graphic illustrates how those efforts are creating meaningful efficiencies at both our Dallas and Akron Support Centers.

New electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at our Dallas Support Center encourage employees to manage their personal transport emissions. Team member Angela Speed was convinced to switch to an EV, knowing she had an option to charge it at work:
“Since my lease was ending on my vehicle close to the time we moved to the new building, and I knew there were electric charging stations available, it made the decision to buy electric an easy choice.”
The charging stations are an added convenience and show the company’s commitment to reducing the impacts of climate change, promoting environmental awareness and rewarding employees who join the effort.
