EPA’s highest honor
Each year, EPA honors a select group of organizations that have made outstanding contributions to protecting the environment through superior energy efficiency. These ENERGY STAR Award winners are chosen from a vast network of nearly 20,000 ENERGY STAR partners. Their achievements demonstrate that improving energy efficiency is one of the fastest and most effective ways to prevent pollution, save money, and create jobs.
The diversity of the ENERGY STAR Award winners represents the breadth and depth of the ENERGY STAR program. With help from EPA’s ENERGY STAR program, every company, every community, and every individual can do their part to protect the climate today and for future generations.
The selection is extremely competitive, and the criteria are rigorous. Awards are given in several categories, although existing building owners and managers typically apply within the Energy Management category:
- Energy Management: awarded to organizations for adopting a continuous energy management strategy across the organization’s entire portfolio of buildings and plants
Energy management awards are given at the organization (not individual building) level for demonstrating an outstanding commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions through a portfolio-wide energy management program.
Applications are due annually in November, and they outline the specific eligibility requirements and selection criteria for each award category. The ceremony takes place in the spring. If you win, you’ll network with hundreds of other leaders in energy management from across industries and receive the prestigious ENERGY STAR Award logo to use in your communications and marketing materials.
