March 8th, 2011 | Category: Industry News

Pilkington North America announced it has become an ENERGY STAR Partner with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The company says this partnership will ensure its float glass manufacturing facilities that produce energy-efficient products are also operated with concern for the environment.

“Pilkington North America is pleased to partner with ENERGY STAR and we look forward to doing our part to fully support the program by continuing to improve the energy efficiency at our plants,” says Todd Huffman, vice president of operations, Building Products North America.

In partnership with ENERGY STAR, Pilkington North America will:

• Measure and track the energy performance of its facilities where possible by using tools such as those offered through ENERGY STAR;

• Develop and implement a plan consistent with the ENERGY STAR Energy Management Guidelines to achieve energy savings; and

• Help spread the word about the importance of energy efficiency.

“ENERGY STAR partners such as Pilkington North America are leading the fight against global warming by improving the efficiency of their buildings and facilities,” says Jean Lupinacci, chief of EPA’s ENERGY STAR Commercial and Industrial branch. “We applaud these efforts to help protect our global environment for generations to come.”

  1. Why is this news? What manufacturing facilities wouldn’t want to conserve and save the company money in this enviroment? Global Warming? Really? The company must have missed the memo that AGW Theory is a hoax. I am assuming that the company has chemists, and such understands that AGW Global Warming theory goes against basic gas laws. Not to mention recent research showing that plants are a negative water vapor feedback to increased CO2. Sounds like a cheap marketing tactic at best.
