Kentucky environmental attorney Sanders says EPA to recognize Nissan for outstanding Energy Star results at two U.S. manufacturing plants.

Nissan has been named a 2010 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year by US EPA for energy management and reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. Nissan’s accomplishments will be recognized at an awards ceremony in Washington, D.C. on March 18, 2010.

Nissan’s manufacturing plants in Smyrna and Decherd Tenn., and Canton, Miss., both have seen their energy efficiency improve by more than 30 percent, saving the company over $11.5 million per year. The Nissan Americas new headquarters building in Franklin, Tenn., features a unique sustainable design that resulted in the facility receiving its ENERGY STAR® label this year.

EPA’s 2010 Partner of the Year Awards recognize efforts to use energy efficiently in facility operations and to integrate superior energy management into overall organizational strategy. Award winners are selected from more than 17,000 organizations that participate in the ENERGY STAR® program.
