LEHIGH HANSON FACILITIES TAKE ENERGY STAR CHALLENGE Lehigh Hanson, Inc. is pleased to announce that eleven of its aggregates production facilities across the country are taking another positive step toward improving energy efficiency and protecting the environment by participating in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) ENERGY STAR Challenge. The ENERGY STAR Challenge calls for an energy efficiency improvement of at least 10 percent for the more than 5 million commercial and industrial buildings in the United States. Energy is often generated by burning fossil fuels, which emits greenhouse gases. EPA estimates that commercial buildings and industrial facilities contribute approximately forty-five percent of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. Using energy more efficiently will help reduce the country's carbon footprint and save money. "At Lehigh Hanson, we are committed to operating in an energy-efficient and environmentally friendly manner," said Dan Harrington, president and CEO. "These locations are taking this commitment to the next level by looking for ways to further reduce their energy consumption while con- serving natural resources and protecting the environment." EPA estimates that if the energy efficiency of commercial and industrial buildings in the U.S. improved 10 percent, Americans would reduce greenhouse gas emissions equal to those from about 30 million vehicles while saving about $20 billion on annual utility bills.
