Sharp Corp. received the Excellence in Partnership Green Contractor Award from the Coalition for Government Procurement and the U.S. Government’s General Services Administration (GSA). The Green Contractor Award is granted to the government contractor who has demonstrated the strongest overall commitment to environmentally sound manufacturing and operating procedures.

The GSA has been promoting adoption of green products and practices throughout 2007. The Green Contractor award is one of five awards available to industry groups.

Sharp is committed to becoming an environmentally advanced company, with goals to reduce its worldwide greenhouse gas emissions by fiscal 2010, with the quantity of greenhouse gases emitted that year equaling the quantity of greenhouse gases avoided through the use of Sharp energy-saving products and the use of the solar cells Sharp has sold during the previous 20 years.

As a leading manufacturer of solar cells, Sharp’s focus is to further the development and use of solar electricity. Sharp is also a leader in LCD TVs, which are more energy efficient than CRT TVs. Sharp’s AQUOS line of LCD TVs is known for long life and Sharp uses green, recyclable materials wherever possible in the construction of the televisions.

Sharp’s Generation 8 LCD panel plant in Kameyama, Japan, is an environmentally friendly factory, employing a rooftop photovoltaic power system, cogeneration systems, and fuel cells, to supply about one-third of total electrical power used in the plant. The entire LCD TV manufacturing process--from fabricating the LCD panels to final assembly--is carried out in a single plant, eliminating the need to ship sub-assemblies between distant plants, and enabling Sharp to slash the amount of packaging materials required for shipping while reducing emissions. The plant also uses a water purifying system in which 100% of the water expelled by the factory is recycled.
