Saint-Gobain Wins EPA's ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year Award (posted 3/11/09)

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has named Saint-Gobain a 2009 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year for outstanding energy management and reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. The company was one of five new winners in the competition’s “energy management” category for industrial companies.

Through a range of energy-awareness programs, key process improvements and implementation of superior energy management practices in 2008, Saint-Gobain businesses in North America were able to save enough energy to make nearly 700 million glass bottles or enough fiber glass insulation for more than 160,000 homes. The company’s reduction in energy use equated to reduced carbon dioxide emissions of nearly 70,000 tons last year.

“Every Saint-Gobain business and organization made contributions to this significant reduction-and we continue to look for additional ways to reduce our energy use in the future,” said Gilles Colas, general delegate for Saint-Gobain in North America.

The 2009 Partner of the Year Awards recognize efforts to use energy efficiently in facility operations and to integrate superior energy management into overall organizational strategy. Award winners are selected from more than 12,000 organizations that participate in the ENERGY STAR program. “EPA is pleased to recognize Saint-Gobain for leadership in addressing global warming through greater energy efficiency,” said Kathleen Hogan, director of the EPA’s Climate Protection Partnerships Division.
