Green Power Partnership
Top 20 Printing & Packaging
The Top 20 Printing & Packaging list represents the largest green power users among printing and packaging partners within the Green Power Partnership. The combined green power use of these organizations amounts to nearly 208 million kilowatt-hours of green power annually, which is the equivalent amount of electricity needed to power nearly 18,000 average American homes each year.
As of April 5, 2012
The Green Power Partnership works with a wide variety of leading organizations — from Fortune 500® companies to local, state and federal governments, and a growing number of colleges and universities. The following Top Partner Rankings highlight the annual green power use of leading organizations within the United States and across individual industry sectors.
Using green power helps reduce the environmental impacts of electricity use and supports the development of new renewable generation capacity nationwide. Usage amounts reflect U.S. operations only and are sourced from U.S.-based green power resources. Organizations can meet EPA Partnership requirements using any combination of three different product options: (1) Renewable Energy Certificates, (2) On-site generation, and (3) Utility green power products.
Usage figures are based on annualized Partner contract amounts (kilowatt-hours), not calendar year totals. These rankings are updated on a quarterly schedule. Find out how your organization can partner with EPA today! To view a top partner list, select from the chart below:
