At JW Winco we are mindful of protecting the environment. So we are always looking for ways to recycle, save energy and water, and incorporate environmentally-conscious procedures and habits into our processes.
Here are examples of our green initiatives:
In 2013 we installed a green roof system on the older portion of the roof of our World Headquarters in New Berlin, Wisconsin. The remodeling project was approved under the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) Regional Green Roof Initiative. Incorporating technologically advanced products, the JW Winco green roof system is on the cutting edge of storm management and retention.
The roof slows water during events of heavy rainfall and stores significant amounts for reuse. Storm water is stored in a retention zone beneath the roof and then used for self-irrigation of the roof via a capillary system, and the roof is maintained by rainwater instead of municipal tap water. By holding rainwater where it falls, green roofs diminishing the risk of sewer overflows and improving the overall water quality in the region.
You can read all about the project in our project launch press release.
