Brown Printing Becomes a 'Save Energy Now LEADER' Company
WASECA, MN—September 14, 2010—Brown Printing today announced its partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy’s Save Energy Now LEADER program. The program is a voluntary agreement by leading industrial companies to reduce their energy intensities by 25% or more over 10 years.
As indicated by the special "LEADER" designation, partner companies are more than just first actors on the path to greater energy efficiency; they are coming forward to serve as actual role models and pace setters on an ongoing basis for others in the industrial sector. Save Energy Now LEADER companies are setting ambitious energy reduction targets that will create demand for energy efficient manufacturing.
“Supporting the development of the latest industrial technologies plays an important role in helping U.S. industry to lead the world in energy efficiency and productivity,” said U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu. "Working together with American manufacturers and IT industries, we will be able to create new jobs, reduce industrial energy use and limit damaging greenhouse gas emissions."
"Brown’s commitments to environmental initiatives and energy efficiency not only generate significant energy and carbon savings, but also show the entire business community the profitable steps that can be taken to move us all toward a clean energy future,” explained Volker Petersen, Brown’s President and CEO.
