Glass and metal packaging manufacturer Ardagh has received the ENERGY STAR building certification for its distribution centre (DC) in Fairfield, California, US.
The facility received certification from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for the eighth consecutive year.
ENERGY STAR-certified buildings and plants usually leverage 35% less energy and 35% less greenhouse gas emissions than their competitors.
In addition, they are less expensive to operate than their peers.
The Fairfield DC mainly caters to the company’s packaging distribution requirements on the country’s West Coast, in a bid to offer an improved service to the wine industry.
Ardagh also installed energy-efficient lighting fixtures for enhanced energy performance and implemented occupancy sensors for greater efficiency across the centre.

Ardagh Glass Packaging CSO Alex Winters said: “Ardagh Group’s commitment to the environment goes beyond producing infinitely recyclable glass containers; we’re dedicated to protecting the communities in which we live and work, by saving energy and reducing our environmental impact.
“Initiatives like the ENERGY STAR certification demonstrate Ardagh’s aim to be an environmental leader in the packaging industry.”
ENERGY STAR is claimed to be the only energy-efficiency certification in the US that is based on verifiable energy performance.
Buildings and plants that receive this validation are verified to perform in the top 25% of buildings across the country in regard to sustainable energy management.
In July last year, Ardagh received ENERGY STAR plant certification for its glass manufacturing facility in Houston, US.
Earlier in January this year, the EPA awarded the same certification to Ardagh’s facility in Madera, California, US.
