Nalco's Naperville Corporate Center Gains ENERGY STAR designation

Nalco announced today that its corporate center in Naperville, IL, earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) prestigious ENERGY STAR®, the national symbol for protecting the environment through superior energy efficiency. This signifies that the building performs in the top 25 percent of similar facilities nationwide for energy efficiency.

"Nalco is pleased to be recognized with the EPA’s ENERGY STAR for our energy efficiency efforts,” said Mary Kay Kaufmann, Nalco’s Chief Marketing Officer and Group Vice President, Commercial Operations, Water and Process Services Americas. "It is another example of our commitment to environmental stewardship and demonstrates that sustainability and profitability are not mutually exclusive. The actions that minimize the environmental impacts of our corporate center also lower our energy costs, the same kind of win-win solution that Nalco provides more than 50,000 customer locations around the world.”

Commercial buildings that earn the ENERGY STAR use an average of 35 percent less energy than typical buildings and also release 35 percent less carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

“The energy efficiency of our nation’s buildings is critical to protecting our environment,” said Jean Lupinacci, Chief of the ENERGY STAR Commercial and Industrial Branch. “From the boiler room to the board room, organizations are leading the way by making their buildings more efficient and earning EPA’s ENERGY STAR.”

EPA’s ENERGY STAR energy performance scale helps organizations assess how efficiently their buildings use energy relative to similar buildings nationwide. A building that scores a 75 or higher on EPA’s 1-100 scale is eligible for the ENERGY STAR. The Chicago metropolitan area ranked 5th in the EPA’s 2009 rankings of the top 25 cities with the most ENERGY STAR labeled buildings.

ENERGY STAR was introduced by EPA in 1992 as a voluntary, market-based partnership to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficiency. Today, the ENERGY STAR label can be found on more than 60 different kinds of products, new homes, and commercial and industrial buildings. Products and buildings that have earned the ENERGY STAR prevent greenhouse gas emissions by meeting strict energy-efficiency specifications set by the government.
