The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has named The Home Depot a 2015 Energy Star partner for sustained excellence.
The Home Depot will be honored on April 20 for its leadership and long-term commitment to energy efficiency through promotion of Energy Star-rated products.
“Through their sustained participation with Energy Star, The Home Depot is helping Americans save money, save energy, and do their part to reduce our nation’s greenhouse gas emissions that fuel climate change,” said Gina McCarthy, EPA administrator.
“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, vp/environmental at The Home Depot.
According to the company, in 2014, The Home Depot added 840 additional Energy Star-rated products and increased Energy Star-related sales by over 10 million units.
The 2015 Partner of the Year Awards are given to a variety of organizations to recognize their contributions to reducing greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficiency.
