Atlanta, GA, March 31, 2020 – Sustainable Investment Group (SIG) is proud to announce that it has received the 2020 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year Sustained Excellence Award for continued leadership and superior contributions to ENERGY STAR.
“We are extremely proud to be recognized again as an ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence for 2020,” said Sustainability Investment Group’s Mechanical Engineer and Energy Star Team Lead Jeff Stewart. “Our clients were keen to maintain their certifications for their properties especially with the 2018-2019 ENERGY STAR suspension, so the recognition from the EPA is greatly appreciated for helping our clients achieve their goals as well as establishing new energy reduction goals for the coming years.”
“I salute the 2020 ENERGY STAR award winners,” said Anne Idsal, EPA Principal Deputy Assistant Administrator for Air and Radiation. “These leaders demonstrate how energy efficiency drives economic competitiveness in tandem with environmental protection.”
