ASICS bags USEPA award for sustainability

Apr '17
ASICS America Corporation, a sports performance brand, has been awarded the US Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) Energy Star. For the third consecutive year, the honour has been bestowed upon the brand's Byhalia Distribution Centre, located in Byhalia, Mississippi. Certification for the EPA Energy Star is awarded on a yearly basis.

The environmental certification is given to commercial buildings that use an average of 35 per cent less energy than typical buildings and also release 35 per cent less carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. The recognition signifies that the building performs to the top 25 per cent of similar facilities nationwide for energy efficiency and meets strict energy efficiency performance levels set by the EPA.

"We are taking the initiative to equip our facilities with the latest technology and information to maintain and exceed energy efficiencies," said Jimmy Adames, ASICS Sustainability & Social Responsibility manager. "Winning this award for the third year in a row is a tremendous honour. We are so proud to be amongst a highly selected group of companies that are working hard to protect the environment, save energy and money."

Further, ASICS also aims to reduce its carbon footprint through the implementation of new sustainability projects and the amplification of those already set in place. ASICS plans to continue to reduce its carbon footprint by installing a large solar panel system, totalling 1 MW, at their Byhalia Distribution Centre. This solar panel installation will be the largest private system in Mississippi and will provide renewable energy for over 20 per cent of the average daily energy consumption at the distribution centre.  The solar panels used in this project are manufactured by Trina Solar and have a top sustainability rating according to the Silicon Valley Toxics Coalition (SVTC). The environmental benefits of the system will be significant.  The benefits of the system are equivalent to removing nearly 200 automobiles from service, or saving 103,534 gallons of gas annually. ASICS plans to have the solar panels fully functional by the end of the summer. (RR)
