DANVERS, MASS.—The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recently recognized Osram Sylvania with the Energy Star Sustained Excellence 2007 award for its continued leadership in protecting the environment through energy efficiency. Sylvania’s accomplishments were recognized at an awards ceremony in Washington, D.C. on March 21. This marks the fifth consecutive year that Sylvania has been recognized as an Energy Star Partner of the Year, and the second year at this highest level of distinction.
Osram Sylvania was honored for its long-term commitment to energy efficiency by producing energy-efficient products, installing highly efficient lighting systems in its facilities, and educating the public and employees about the benefits of energy-efficient products and practices.
“As a six-time Energy Star award recipient, we see a great value in our relationship with Energy Star,” says Jennifer Dolin, General Lighting Environmental Marketing Manager. “Our customers save energy and reduce air pollution by looking for the Energy Star logo on our products. Energy Star has made it easy for consumers to help the environment. At Sylvania, our commitment to environmental sustainability is a priority that goes well beyond our products.”
Osram Sylvania has been an Energy Star partner since 1999. In addition to receiving the Partner of the Year award from 2003 to 2005, and the Sustained Excellence Award in 2006, the company has also been recognized for its promotions supporting the Energy Star “Change a Light, Change the World” campaign. This national campaign encourages consumers to take the Energy Star pledge to save energy, and help protect the environment by changing a standard light in their home to an Energy Star qualified compact fluorescent light.
