SECAUCUS, N.J. - For the second consecutive year, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has named Panasonic Home & Environment Co. as a 2011 Energy Star® Partner of the Year for its achievements in reducing greenhouse gas emissions by manufacturing energy-efficient products and helping to educate consumers about those products. Panasonic’s accomplishments will be recognized at an awards ceremony in Washington, D.C., on April 12, 2011.

Panasonic Home & Environment Co., an Energy Star partner since 2001, will be honored for its leadership in manufacturing products that earn the Energy Star rating. The company said that, with the highest efficacy (up to 14.4 cubic feet per minute/Watt) of any of the ventilation fan Energy Star partners, Panasonic continues to exceed standards with its entire product line where guidelines exist.

“Panasonic is honored to be named an Energy Star partner for 2011 because it validates our continued commitment to improving the energy efficiency of products, homes, buildings and businesses,” said Anita So, marketing manager, Panasonic Home & Environment Co. “The award not only acknowledges our high-performing energy-efficient ventilation fans and their role in preserving indoor air quality, but it also recognizes our commitment to educating both industry professionals and consumers on the importance of sustainability.”

The 2011 Partner of the Year Awards are given to manufacturers and retailers that successfully promote and deliver Energy Star qualified products, saving consumers money and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Award winners are selected from more than 20,000 organizations that participate in the Energy Star program.

“Today, EPA is recognizing Panasonic Home & Environment Company for their leadership in addressing climate change through energy efficiency,” said Elizabeth Craig, acting director of EPA’s Office of Atmospheric Programs. “Panasonic is producing and promoting energy-efficient Energy Star products that help American consumers join in the effort to increase our nation’s energy efficiency and reduce our emissions of greenhouse gases. We look forward to continuing to partner with these winners as they create the next generation of energy-efficient products.”
