SECAUCUS, N.J. — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has awarded Panasonic Home & Environment Co. with a 2012 Energy Star® Sustained Excellence Award in recognition of its continued leadership in manufacturing energy efficient ventilation fans. Panasonic’s accomplishments are being recognized at an awards ceremony in Washington, D.C., today, March 15, 2012, which marks the 20th anniversary of Energy Star.

An Energy Star Partner of the Year in 2011 and 2010, Panasonic Home & Environment Co. is being honored for its long-term commitment to sustainability. With the highest efficacy (up to 23.3 cubic feet per minute/Watt) of any Energy Star-rated ventilation fan, EPA said Panasonic continues to exceed standards with its entire product line where guidelines exist.

“Panasonic is proud to partner with Energy Star in protecting our environment through energy efficiency,” said Anita So, marketing manager, Panasonic Home & Environment Co. “The Sustained Excellence Award not only acknowledges our continued dedication in providing innovative products, but recognizes our commitment to sustainability through our education initiatives and corporate outreach.”

EPA said the 2012 Sustained Excellence Awards are given to a select group of organizations that have exhibited outstanding leadership year after year. These winners have reduced greenhouse gas emissions by setting and achieving aggressive goals, employing innovative approaches, and showing others what can be achieved through energy efficiency. The awards recognize ongoing leadership across the Energy Star program including energy-efficient products, services, new homes, and buildings in the commercial, industrial, and public sectors. Award winners are selected from about 20,000 organizations that participate in the Energy Star program.

“As we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Energy Star program, EPA is proud to recognize Panasonic Home & Environment Co. with the 2012 Energy Star Sustained Excellence Award,” said EPA Administrator Lisa P. Jackson. “Panasonic and all our Energy Star award winners are helping Americans find cost-effective ways to save energy in everything we do, which is good for our climate, our health, and our future.”
