It means safely manufacturing our products in a way that minimizes our use of energy and natural resources. For example, our architectural film becomes carbon neutral in less than two months after installation — meaning the resources used in its manufacture neither contributed to nor reduced the amount of carbon in the atmosphere. However — and this is huge—over the service life of the product, we’re actually providing 14 plus years of greenhouse gas reductions.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recognised Eastman Chemical Company as a 2013 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year for strategically managing and improving energy efficiency. We are proud of the progress but we recognise we have more to do.
Eastman is an active participant in the U.S. Department of Energy's Save Energy Now LEADER program and is also an EPA/DOE ENERGY STAR® Partner, promoting the benefits of ENERGY STAR and related tools.
Through this partnership, Eastman has improved its energy performance, saved money and helped to protect the environment for future generations. Eastman is the only chemical company to have the distinction of being named ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year more than once – having won in 2012 and 2013.
At Eastman, sustainability is a journey of continuous improvement. Today. Tomorrow. And for generations to come.
