Long-time Burton client Staples Inc. capped off an award-winning year in March 2012 by winning its second consecutive EPA ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year award. This came on the heels of being recognized in December by Platts for “Energy Efficiency Program of the Year” during their Global Energy Awards gathering in December. These achievements recognize Staples leadership in the energy management sector that has driven a portfolio-wide reduction of over 16% of their energy consumption over the past several years.
At their annual Strategic Energy Planning meeting on April 3, 2012, Staples assembled thought leaders and business partners from across the industry at their headquarters to plan programs and strategies to maintain their leadership in 2012 and beyond. At this event, Staples recognized Burton Energy Group in front of their business partners and peers as the sole winner of their prestigious “Award of Excellence,” thanking the team for the contributions Burton has made as a core part of the Staples energy program. Staples also recognized the role the Burton team has played in helping the company achieve and maintain their award-winning program performance.
