GE Appliances & Lighting supports the ENERGY STAR® program through a variety of initiatives, including training sales employees, retailers and distributors; promoting ENERGY STAR®-qualified products; and recycling at company locations. For example, in 2011, GE Appliance Park in Louisville recycled 10,000 gross tons of factory and office materials.

GE representatives will receive the award at a March 15 ceremony in Washington, D.C.

"As we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the ENERGY STAR program, EPA is proud to recognize GE Appliances & Lighting with the 2012 ENERGY STAR Sustained Excellence Award," said EPA Administrator Lisa P. Jackson. "GE Appliances & Lighting and all our ENERGY STAR award winners are helping Americans find cost-effective ways to save energy in everything we do, which is good for our climate, our health, and our future."

GE Lighting offered a total of 501 ENERGY STAR®-qualified LED (light-emitting diode) and CFL (compact fluorescent lamps) products in 2011 — more than at any point in its history and 29 percent more than in 2010. Approximately three-fourths of all GE Lighting CFL and LED products sold in the United States in 2011 were ENERGY STAR® qualified.

GE was the first lighting manufacturer in the U.S.
