Environmental Protection Agency Recognizes Globe Lithographing for “Green” Power Purchase
Press release from the issuing company
Ridgefield Park, New Jersey, July 24, 2007: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recognized Globe Lithographing as an EPA Green Power Partner for its purchase of renewable energy. Globe Lithographing has purchased more than 834,000 kilowatt hours (kWh) of green power, representing 100 percent of the company’s annual purchased electricity use. Globe Lithographing is purchasing Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) in the form of wind power from Community Energy, a leading national green power provider that is building the market for clean and renewable sources of energy.
By purchasing green power, Globe Lithographing qualifies for EPA’s Green Power Partnership, a national voluntary program that works with organizations to purchase green power as a way to reduce the environmental impacts associated with electricity use.
“Green power” is defined as electricity that is generated from environmentally preferable resources, such as solar, wind, geothermal, biogas, biomass, and low-impact hydro sources. Such resources generate electricity with zero anthropogenic (caused by humans) carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and have a superior environmental profile to conventional power generation. Green power purchases help support the development of new renewable energy capacity nationwide.
Community Energy President Brent Alderfer stated, “Globe Lithographing has stepped up as a leader in New Jersey. Their renewable energy purchase puts their energy dollars to work to benefit the state economically and environmentally. As more customers choose to follow their lead and purchase renewable energy, we can bring more clean power resources online to meet that demand."
