Thursday, May 6, 2010

Today EPA recognized the first group of manufacturing sites that have met the ENERGY STAR Challenge for Industry and reduced their energy intensity by 10% within 5 years or less. The U.S. manufacturing industry is responsible for nearly 30% of greenhouse gas emissions in the United States and spends almost $100 billion annually on energy. Under the umbrella of the ENERGY STAR Challenge for Industry, EPA is working with individual manufacturing sites and their parent companies to fight climate change through improvements in energy efficiency.
