Colgate-Palmolive Company has announced that it has received a 2020 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year Award for Sustained Excellence for its continued leadership and superior contributions to ENERGY STAR. This marks the 10th year that Colgate has been recognized as a leader in energy efficient practices and 8th year receiving the sustained excellence designation.

Guided by the Company’s overarching sustainability goals, the Global Energy Reduction Team leads the technical implementation of Colgate’s energy strategy within its manufacturing sites across the world. In the past year, the team has also achieved measurable changes in several ways, including:

  • In Burlington, New Jersey, implementing solar panels at the manufacturing plant as part of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification for Zero Energy & Carbon. These panels are responsible for 33% of the plant’s energy and electricity needs.
  • In China, replacing over one hundred high-energy motors with low-energy motors on manufacturing equipment.
  • In Mexico, substituting general service pumps with high-efficiency pumps.

Colgate’s factories also participate in “Energy Treasure Hunts,” three-day events that encourage participants to uncover causes of energy waste and find opportunities for improvement. Since implementing the program in 2012, Colgate has completed 34 Energy Treasure Hunts and identified 1,962 energy reduction solutions with an estimated energy savings of 349,754 MWh and 121,824 MT of CO2.

“Energy management and the use of renewable energy sources are two of the building blocks of Colgate’s greater sustainability strategy,” said Ann Tracy, Chief Sustainability Officer. “As we continue to make great strides toward our 2025 sustainability goals, we are proud to be recognized by ENERGY STAR® for our commitment to reducing emissions and eliminating energy waste.”
