Boeing Wins ENERGY STAR Award

Boeing's ENERGY STAR-rated Bay Area Boulevard building

ENERGY STAR tipped its hat to Boeing’s energy efficiency programs this week, awarding the aviation company a Partner of the Year award from the Environmental Protection Agency.

ENERGY STAR chose Boeing for companywide programs that reduce energy consumption, involve employees, raise awareness and continuously encourage improvements.

“This achievement is a testament to the innovation and creativity of the entire Boeing team, which simultaneously cut our energy usage, reduced our facilities’ environmental footprint and drove improvements in our business performance,” said Boeing Chairman, President and CEO Jim McNerney. “We are proud of our teams’ efforts. This is a great honor for Boeing. One that will motivate us to keep improving our energy efficiency and reducing our environmental footprint even further.”

According to Boeing, since 2002 revenue-adjusted data indicates the company reduced energy consumption by 30 percent and lowered CO2 emissions by 28 percent.

EPA will honor Boeing and 40 other ENERGY STAR Partners at a ceremony in D.C. April 12.
