Casio continues stellar energy performance, "true environmental leadership" at U.S. HQ
Casio America has recently announced that their Dover, NJ headquarters has earned its 4th ENERGY STAR certification from the EPA for "superior energy performance." Having previously received the certification in 2011, 2012, and 2013, the company's press release stated that this "reflects a legacy of continued energy savings."
Jean Lupinacci, ENERGY STAR Director for Commercial and Industrial buildings, explained that "Casio's U.S. headquarters continues to demonstrate true environmental leadership by reducing harmful greenhouse gas emissions that are proven to contribute to climate change" and that "improving energy is so critical for our future."
Casio America's president and CEO Yuji Sasajima stated that "We’re honored to earn the ENERGY STAR for superior energy performance at Casio America, Inc. and appreciate the efforts of everyone who has been involved in its efficient operation. “Saving energy is just one of the ways we show our community we care, and that we’re committed to doing our part to protect the environment and public health, both today and for future generations” he continued.
Sasajima attributes the headquarters' energy efficiency to a variety of energy saving methods, such as installing two HVLS fans in the 68,000 feet of warehouse space to reduce winter fuel consumption by ensuring a constant air temperature throughout the building. Adding motion-controlled lights in the warehouse and office space also contributed to increased efficiency, as well as their special facilities team, which is responsible for regulating the air conditioning and tracking weather conditions.
ENERGY STAR reports that certified buildings and plants account for the top 25% of buildings nationwide, use 35% less energy, and emit 35% fewer greenhouse gases.
