CHICAGO, April 16 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S Environmental Protection Agency has awarded the Energy Star label to Honda of America's automobile assembly plants in Marysville and East Liberty, Ohio, for their energy efficiency performance over the past 12 months.

"The energy efficiency of these two plants places them among the top 25 percent of auto assembly plants in the country," said EPA Region 5 Administrator Mary Gade. "By increasing energy efficiency, Honda has both reduced greenhouse gas emissions and saved money."

Requirements for achieving the Energy Star label include compliance with EPA regulations, safe lighting levels, and performance certification by a professional engineer licensed in the state where the plants are located.
EPA began its Energy Star motor vehicle manufacturing program in 2001. Participation is available to all manufacturers with motor vehicle production facilities in the United States.

Recognition for Energy Star performance is a valuable method for sustaining momentum in a corporate energy program. The EPA program enables corporate energy managers to stimulate energy performance across all of a company's facilities.

EPA started Energy Star in 1992 to help businesses and consumers protect the environment through energy efficiency. It is probably best known as a label for energy performance on home appliances and electronics. In the last year alone, Energy Star helped consumers and businesses save $12 billion and prevent greenhouse gas emissions equal to those from 23 million cars.
