Ardagh Group Awarded ENERGY STAR® Building Certification

Ardagh Group, Glass – North America, a division of Ardagh Group and a leading producer of glass containers for the food and beverage industries in the United States, was awarded the ENERGY STAR® building certification for superior energy performance from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This is the second consecutive year that the Ardagh Group distribution center, located in Fairfield, Calif., has earned the ENERGY STAR, reflecting a legacy of continued energy savings achieved throughout the company. Since 2010, 10 Ardagh Group facilities and buildings have earned the ENERGY STAR certification 32 times.

The Ardagh Group distribution center has demonstrated superior energy performance and, on average, performs within the top 25 percent nationwide for energy efficiency when compared to similar buildings across the country.

The majority of energy consumption in the Fairfield facility is generated by lighting. The 24 hour, five-day-a-week distribution center has 64 docks, 10,000 square feet of office space, and more than one million square feet of storage and warehouse space. By installing energy-efficient, motion-sensor lighting fixtures throughout the distribution center, Ardagh Group was able to reduce operational costs, while reducing its impact on the environment.

Ardagh Group’s Fairfield facility, a distribution center built primarily to serve Ardagh Group’s bottling and distribution needs of the West Coast wine, food and beer industries, has been recognized three times as an ENERGY STAR certified building which uses 35 percent less energy, causes 35 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions, and is less expensive to operate than their peers.

“Ardagh Group is honored to earn this prestigious ENERGY STAR building certification at its Fairfield distribution facility,” said John Riordan, President and CEO of Ardagh Group, Glass – North America. “We remain committed to conserving energy and protecting the environment by upgrading our facilities with the most modern, energy-saving initiatives.”

ENERGY STAR was introduced by the EPA in 1992 as a voluntary, market-based partnership to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficiency. Today, the ENERGY STAR label can be found on more than 65 different kinds of products as well as new homes and commercial and industrial buildings that meet strict energy-efficiency specifications set by the EPA. American families and businesses have saved a total of nearly $230 billion on utility bills and prevented more than 1.8 billion metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions with help from ENERGY STAR.
