The Hubert Company’s Harrison Corporate Headquarters and Distribution Center has earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) ENERGY STAR certification, which signifies that the building performs in the top 25 percent of similar facilities nationwide for energy efficiency and meets strict energy efficiency performance levels set by the EPA.
“Hubert is pleased to accept the EPA’s ENERGY STAR certification in recognition of our energy efficiency efforts,” said President and CEO Bart Kohler. “Through this achievement, we have demonstrated our commitment to environmental stewardship while also lowering our energy costs.”
Commercial buildings that earn EPA’s ENERGY STAR certification use an average of 35 percent less energy than typical buildings and also release 35 percent less carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Hubert improved its energy performance by managing energy strategically across the entire organization and by making cost-effective improvements to its building. Hubert has offset greenhouse gas emissions equal to the annual electricity use of 12,564 light bulbs, 39,622 trees, 1,580 tons of carbon dioxide and 178,301 gallons of gasoline.
Over the past twenty years, American families and businesses have saved more than $230 billion on utility bills and prevented more than 1.8 billion metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions with help from ENERGY STAR.
