Solar Canopy Arrays

BXP has four large solar photovoltaic (PV) parking canopy systems at 101, 302, 510 and 701 Carnegie Center in Princeton, New Jersey. Over 13,000 solar panels generate 5.2 megawatts (MWs) of power, 70% of the total energy needed on an annual basis at the four buildings totaling 554,000 square feet.

Wildlife Habitat Council (WHC) Certification

BXP is committed to continuing and expanding the wildlife habitat programs at Carnegie Center to maintain and increase the biodiversity. Additional opportunities to enhance the natural landscape of the campus include creating wetland buffers, installing bird boxes, and planting more native trees and shrubs. Having healthy habitats on an premier workplace  campus can fundamentally change clients’ mindsets about the importance of holistic land management. Everything affects everything else. For example, using pesticides for pest control can harm bird populations, which end up consuming toxic chemicals. When bird populations drop, pests become more of an issue and environmental problems escalate. But allowing nature to take its course can provide more effective overall pest control as bird populations increase and keep insect populations in check.

In 2023 BXP received a Gold Tier Certification from WHC. BXP is planning to increase education and outreach efforts to engage clients and visitors more actively in conservation initiatives. In addition to the app to allow users to access information about the wildlife habitat projects on their smartphones, events such as annual Earth Day celebrations, informational signage, nature walks and volunteer activities offer additional opportunities to engage with the environment on campus.

If it's not green, it’s not an investment.
