Eastman Earns Major Energy Star RecognitionMarch 30th, 2016 by Casey Flores
For the fifth consecutive year, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is recognizing Eastman Chemical Company as an Energy Star Partner of the Year for “continued leadership in protecting the environment through superior energy efficiency achievements,” according to the company.
This also marks Eastman’s third consecutive year winning the Sustained Excellence Award, EPA’s highest Energy Star honor.
“To be recognized by the EPA five years in a row for Eastman’s commitment to energy management and environmental stewardship is a tremendous honor,” says Mark Costa, chairman and CEO. “At Eastman, we’re mindful that we manage energy-intensive operations, which is why we’re committed to implementing innovative solutions to maximize efficiency and reduce our environmental impact.”
“Eastman is helping Americans save money, save energy and do their part to reduce our nation’s greenhouse gas emissions that exacerbate climate change,” says EPA administrator Gina McCarthy.
