The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently certified Frito-Lay’s Pulaski, Tenn., plant as an ENERGY STAR facility in recognition of the site’s outstanding energy conservation efforts.

ENERGY STAR is a joint program of the EPA and U.S. Department of Energy. To be ENERGY STAR certified, a facility must meet strict energy performance standards. Such facilities use less energy, are less expensive to operate and produce fewer greenhouse gas emissions than their peers.  For a manufacturing plant to qualify for the ENERGY STAR, it must earn a 75 or higher on the EPA's 100-point energy performance scale, indicating that the facility performs better than at least 75% of similar buildings nationwide.

PepsiCo has been an ENERGY STAR partner since 2004, in recognition of its overall energy conservation efforts. Last year, the company earned Partner of the Year for the fifth consecutive year, including with "Sustained Excellence" for the fourth consecutive year.
