Eastman Kodak Company
Rochester, New York
Eastman Kodak Company, recognized for the creation and use of images that span the photography, health and commercial markets, is a leader in practicing and promoting energy efficiency. Its corporate commitment to continually improve energy performance spans both operations and product lines. Eastman Kodak’s world class energy team has top-level company commitment as is demonstrated through its robust energy policy and aggressive energy and carbon dioxide reduction goals, which are tracked monthly. The energy team, working together with the basic manufacturing operations, implemented a strategic energy management plan that has saved more than $8.5 million in operating costs and enough energy to operate all plants worldwide for a full month, reducing carbon dioxide emissions equivalent to planting 216,000 acres of trees. Eastman Kodak also produces and sells more than 20 ENERGY STAR qualifying product lines including copiers, printers, and scanners.
Raytheon Company, one of the world’s largest defense and aerospace systems suppliers, is committed to strategic management of energy throughout its operations. Raytheon’s corporate culture encourages a commitment to continuous improvement. To set the tone for achievement, the company has instituted several key management steps. These include the dedication of top executives to energy efficiency, a corporate energy policy that affects all operations, use of the ENERGY STAR partnership to promote the energy program, an extensive tracking system that incorporates all facilities in the company, and benchmarking of these sites over time and against one another. Raytheon has successfully applied the Six Sigma approach to its management of energy. Under its comprehensive energy program, Raytheon Energy Action Program (REAP), the company has saved over $6.8 million and 26 million kWh in the past year alone. These savings are equivalent to powering a community of 2,600 U.S. homes or removing 3,300 cars from the road each year.
