Cooper Lighting Solutions, a business unit of Signify, has won the 2021 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy for the seventh consecutive year. The award recognizes continued leadership and superior contributions to ENERGY STAR.
In line with its sustainability goal, Cooper Lighting Solutions deployed millions of ENERGY STAR-certified solutions in both commercial and residential markets, increasing the number of ENERGY STAR-certified configurable models by 19% with new products. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the ENERGY STAR-certified products provided by the company to consumers represented a 48% increase in avoided electricity consumption compared to the previous year. Between 2017-2020, Cooper Lighting Solutions’ HALO LED Recessed Lighting offering to businesses and consumers averaged an annual increase of 40% in avoided electricity consumption.
“We are honored to win this award,” said Kraig Kasler, president of Cooper Lighting Solutions. “Sustainability is a primary goal for us and as a responsible company, we are committed to delivering the most innovative, energy efficient solutions to our customers through a strong and robust agent and channel partner network, and industry partnerships like the one with ENERGY STAR. Winning this award for the seventh year in a row is very encouraging and reinforces our dedication to advancing the understanding and offering the best and most valuable lighting technology solutions for the benefit of communities.”
