The ENERGY STAR label is recognized as a symbol of energy efficiency for consumer products. But did you know there are over 130 ENERGY STAR certified industrial plants in the U.S.? Or that over 900 plants world-wide have taken the ENERGY STAR Challenge for Industry, pledging to reduce energy intensity by 10% within 5 years?

For over 12 years, the US EPA’s ENERGY STAR for Industry program has been quietly working with manufacturers and industrial sectors to develop tools and resources that improve energy performance in the manufacturing sector. Today, the program offers a wide-range materials as well as recognition programs that manufacturers and technical assistance providers can all leverage.
