Better Plants

Better Plants Program LogoLeading manufacturers and industrial-scale energy-using organizations demonstrate their commitment to improving energy performance by signing a voluntary pledge to reduce their energy intensity by 25% over a ten year period. The U.S. Department of Energy’s Better Buildings, Better Plants Program is an important partnership which consists of approximately 150 industrial companies, representing about 2,300 facilities and close to 11% of the total U.S. manufacturing energy footprint as well as several water and wastewater treatment organizations.

Better Plants Partners benefit from DOE technical support and are able to implement cost-effective energy efficiency improvements that save energy and improve competitiveness. To date, Better Plants Partners have saved about 320 trillion British thermal units (TBtu) and almost $1.7 billion cumulatively in energy costs. Collectively, these companies are showing that good energy management practices are good for business and good for the environment.
