Today, more than 85 percent of Americans recognize the ENERGY STAR label. Organizations from small school districts to large Fortune 500 companies have embraced its value. Families and businesses have saved more than $239 billion on utility bills and prevented more than 1.9 billion metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions over the past two decades. The interplay of government, business, and market forces brought together through ENERGY STAR literally has changed history.
EPA offers many tools and materials to promote energy efficiency. These include:
- The ENERGY STAR marks;
- Public service announcements;
- Promotional and campaign materials;
- Performance rating systems;
- Sales training materials;
- Educational brochures; and
- Awards in recognition of excellence.
More than a mark of energy efficiency, ENERGY STAR is also a symbol of trust, quality, and responsible stewardship of our environment.
