Eighteen Dean Foods dairy processing plants have been recognised by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for their environmental efforts.
According to the Dallas-based company, 18 of its manufacturing locations across the US were able to meet the requirements of the EPA’s ENERGY STAR Challenge by achieving an energy intensity reduction of 10% or more.
The ENERGY STAR Challenge is a “national call-to-action” to improve the energy efficiency of commercial and industrial buildings across the US.
“We are pleased to be part of the ENERGY STAR Challenge and very proud of the work we’ve done company-wide to help protect the environment by improving our energy performance,” said Dean Foods CEO, Gregg Tanner.
“The recognition we’ve received from the EPA is a tangible way to demonstrate the progress we’re making toward our goals to reduce our environmental impact and operating costs – as well as improve our efficiency – by 2020.”
