The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Department of Energy (DOE) have named Lowe's Companies, Inc. the ENERGY STAR 2004 Retail Partner of the Year. The home improvement retailer was cited for its outstanding contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions through promoting energy-efficient products and educating consumers and employees on the value of the ENERGY STAR program.

Lowe's was selected for the award from thousands of organizations that participate in the ENERGY STAR program. The retailer's accomplishments will be recognized at an awards ceremony in Washington, D.C., U.S. on March 2.

"To be honored as Retail Partner of the Year for a second year running validates our ongoing efforts to educate our customers about products that will not only save them money, but help conserve valuable natural resources," said Dale Pond, Lowe's senior executive vice president of Merchandising and Marketing. "We all share in this responsibility, and as the second largest appliance retailer in the country, we are proud to take a leadership role in promoting solutions that benefit both our customers and the environment."

Lowe's, a partner in the program since 2001, is being honored for its commitment to promoting products that earn the ENERGY STAR mark, which can be found on products such as lighting, appliances, programmable thermostats, and windows that meet strict energy-efficiency guidelines set by the EPA and DOE. The retailer said it increased the sale of ENERGY STAR qualified products by more than 30 percent, exceeding its goal of 20 percent set at the beginning of the year.

In addition, last year, Lowe's offered eight ENERGY STAR "How To" clinics that allowed customers to learn about products that help conserve electricity and water and make their homes more efficient.
