CertainTeed Corporation and its sister Saint-Gobain companies in North America are honored to be selected for the second straight year as a 2010 Energy Star Partner of the Year for Energy Management by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

VALLEY FORGE, Pa. - CertainTeed Corporation and its sister Saint-Gobain companies in North America are honored to be selected for the second straight year as a 2010 Energy Star Partner of the Year for Energy Management by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

This prestigious award recognizes all of Saint-Gobain’s North American businesses, including CertainTeed, for their accomplishments and leadership in reducing greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficiency.

In 2009, Saint-Gobain’s energy-use reduction equated to a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions released to the atmosphere of more than 70,000 tons, a savings equivalent to the amount of energy required to manufacture wallboard to cover nearly 45,000 homes or insulate 100,000 homes.

“CertainTeed is committed to preserving our environment through sustainable manufacturing and developing products that will improve energy efficiency,” said Peter Dachowski, president and CEO for CertainTeed Corporation. “We are pleased with our employees’ dedication to energy management which has made this year’s Energy Star Partner of Year award possible.”
