WASHINGTON, DC — U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Christie Whitman has presented Energy Star Partner Awards to 36 businesses and organizations in recognition of their efforts to enhance energy efficiency and reduce global warming gases.

"Successful partnerships have always been integral to achieving our environmental protection goals," said Whitman. "We honor the 2002 Energy Star Partner Award winners who serve as models to other businesses and organizations, proving you can improve our environment while saving energy and money."

In 2001 alone, Americans, with the help of Energy Star, saved $5 billion in energy costs and reduced pollution equivalent to taking 10 million cars off the road. More than 750 million Energy Star products have been sold, more than 55,000 new homes have earned the Energy Star, and more than 10,000 office buildings, schools, supermarkets, and hotels have benchmarked their energy performance as a basis for future progress.

Energy Star was established by the EPA in 1992 to offer energy saving and pollution preventing solutions for consumers and businesses. Energy Star now works with more than 7,000 partners to improve the energy efficiency of products, homes, and buildings.
