Three xpedx sites earn Energy Star certification
- Filed in:
The three xpedx sites earned the Energy Start by scoring in the top 25% of similar facilities nationwide for energy efficiency, based on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s energy performance rating system. These buildings use less energy, are less expensive to operate, meet strict energy performance standards, and cause fewer greenhouse gas emissions than peer facilities.
David Wallace, xpedx’s director, Sustainability, says xpedx’s work with Energy Star is an important part of its company-wide commitment to responsible stewardship of natural resources. “xpedx continues making great progress in maintaining sustainable operations, offering sustainable products, and providing leadership in sustainable business practices for our customers and suppliers,” he said.
As an Energy Start partner, xpedx is tracking its energy consumption and improving its operating costs through energy-saving strategies. xpedx has also committed to highlight its achievements as recognized by Energy Star, support the Energy Star challenge to improve the energy efficiency of America’s commercial and industrial buildings by at least 10%, and spread the word about the importance of energy efficiency to its employees and communities where it operates.
xpedx now has 17 sites that have earned the Energy Star and is on track to meet its goal of nine additional locations in 2012.
