For the sixth consecutive year, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is recognizing Eastman Chemical Company with an Energy Star Partner of the Year Award “for continued leadership and superior energy efficiency achievements,” according to the EPA. This year also marks Eastman’s fourth consecutive year winning the Sustained Excellence Award, the EPA’s highest Energy Star honor.

“To be recognized by the EPA six years in a row for Eastman’s commitment to energy management is a tremendous honor,” said Mark J. Costa, Eastman’s chairman and CEO. “Eastman has been on a transformative journey to become a specialty materials company over the last several years. I’m incredibly proud of the Eastman team and their continued focus on environmental stewardship as the company portfolio evolves.”

“At Eastman, we believe a truly sustainable company is one that creates significantly more value than the resources it uses,” said David A. Golden, senior vice president and chief legal and sustainability officer. “We’re mindful that we manage natural resource-intensive operations, which is why we’re committed to implementing innovative ways to reduce our environmental impact. I could not be more proud of the successes our employees are driving across the company and around the world.”
