March 26, 2012
SECAUCUS, N.J. — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) awarded Panasonic Home & Environment Co. the 2012 Energy Star® Sustained Excellence award in recognition of its continued leadership in manufacturing innovative and energy-efficient ventilation fans.

Panasonic’s accomplishments were heralded at the EPA’s recent Energy Star 20th anniversary ceremony in Washington, D.C.

“Panasonic is proud to partner with Energy Star in protecting our environment through energy efficiency,” said Anita So, marketing manager. “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.”

Over the past 20 years, American families and businesses have saved nearly $230 billion on utility bills and prevented greenhouse gas emissions equal to those from more than 350 million vehicles with help from Energy Star, according to the EPA.

“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, health, and future.”
