The Harrison Steel Castings Co. announced a fundamental commitment to protect the environment by becoming an ENERGY STAR Partner. Harrison Steel, through its voluntary partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, will work to improve energy efficiency and fight global warming. Harrison Steel believes that a strategic, corporate energy management program will help enhance its financial health and aid in preserving the environment for future generations.
“Harrison Steel is striving to achieve better energy utilization,” said Robert Harrison, Vice President of Finance and Treasurer. “Energy Star partnership gives us the ability to benchmark performance, share ideas, and try new things.”
In partnership with ENERGY STAR, Harrison Steel will:
• Measure and track the energy performance of its organization’s 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;
• Help spread the word about the importance of energy efficiency to its staff and community;
• Support the ENERGY STAR Challenge, a national call-to-action to help improve the energy efficiency of America’s commercial and industrial buildings by 10 percent or more;
• Highlight its achievements with recognition offered through
• ENERGY STAR.
"ENERGY STAR partners such as Harrison Steel are leading the fight against global warming by improving the efficiency of their buildings and facilities," said 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."
ENERGY STAR was introduced by EPA in 1992 as a voluntary, market-based partnership to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficiency. Today, the ENERGY STAR label can be found on more than 60 different kinds of products, new homes, and commercial and industrial buildings. Products and buildings that have earned the ENERGY STAR designation prevent greenhouse gas emissions by meeting strict energy-efficiency specifications set by the
government. Last year alone, Americans, with the help of ENERGY STAR, saved about $19 billion on their energy bills while reducing the greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those of 29 million vehicles.
