Since its inception 30 years ago, Energy Star, which has been America’s resource for saving energy and protecting the environment, together with its partners have helped prevent over 4 billion tons of greenhouse gas emissions, while saving consumers and businesses over $500 billion.

Leading the way in delivering these results are award-winning partners that the Environmental Protection Agency honors each year that have made outstanding contributions to protecting the environment through superior energy efficiency achievements in partnership with Energy Star.

Whether a first-time winner or a winner for many years, these Energy Star award-winning partners from across the country demonstrate that delivering real climate solutions makes good business sense and strengthens our economy.
