EPA’s Climate Protection Partnerships Division (CPPD) is committed to reducing greenhouse gases (GHG) through energy-efficiency and cost-effective partnerships with industries in all sectors of our economy where emissions reductions can be achieved. ENERGY STAR, one of EPA’s dynamic government/industry partnerships, offers businesses and consumers energy-efficient solutions, making it easy to save money while protecting the environment for future generations. In 1992, EPA introduced ENERGY STAR as a voluntary labeling program designed to identify and promote energy-efficient products to reduce GHG emissions. Computers and monitors were the first labeled products. Through 1995, EPA expanded the label to additional office equipment products and residential heating and cooling equipment. Today the ENERGY STAR label is now on major appliances, office equipment, lighting, consumer electronics, and more. EPA has also extended the label to cover new homes, commercial and industrial buildings. Through partnerships with more than 17,000 private and public sector organizations, ENERGY STAR continues to deliver technical information and tools that organizations and consumers need in order to choose smart energy-efficient solutions and best management practices. The Climate Protection Partnerships Division seeks to further enhance the adoption of energy efficient products to the residential and commercial sectors, by funding proposals that advance improvement in national, regional, state, and local product energy efficiency.
