ISPE and the ENERGY STAR Challenge for the Bio/ Pharma / Medical Device Sector ( WEBEPASTAR )
ISPE has partnered with ENERGY STAR to promote the ENERGY STAR Challenge for the Bio/Pharma/Medical Device sectors. The ENERGY STAR Challenge encourages manufacturing sites reduce their energy intensity by 10% or more within 5 years or less. Sites that achieve the Challenge receive recognition from the ENERGY STAR program. The ENERGY STAR Challenge provides a context for identifying best practices that reduce energy use, costs, and greenhouse gas emissions. The ENERGY STAR Challenge can be leveraged by ISPE members who are involved in initiatives to improve facility performance within their companies. The measures and best practices that are taken to achieve the ENERGY STAR Challenge can become the topics discussed through various ISPE COP forums. By partnering with ENERGY STAR provides ISPE the opportunity to demonstrate leadership in the field of environmental sustainability.
This presentation will review the objective of the new ISPE – ENERGY STAR partnership and how sites can participate in the ENERGY STAR Challenge recognition program.
