April 14th, 2015 by Editor

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has named Home Depot a 2015 Energy Star Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence for its promotion of energy-efficient products. The Home Depot’s accomplishments will be recognized in Washington, D.C., on April 20.

Home Depot is receiving the honor for helping to increase awareness and demand for Energy Star-rated products. In 2014, Home Depot added 840 additional Energy Star products and increased Energy Star sales by over 10 million units.

“Energy-efficient and eco-friendly products are increasingly important to our customers – especially as many of them look for opportunities to minimize their impact on the environment while reducing their utility bills,” said Ron Jarvis, vice president of Environmental at The Home Depot. “Energy Star has been an excellent partner of ours for more than a decade as we continue expanding our energy-efficient product offering.”

The 2015 Partner of the Year Awards are given to organizations that make notable contributions to reducing greenhouse gas emissions through superior energy efficiency. Winners are selected from the 16,000 organizations that participate in the Energy Star program.
