EPA's Energy Star® Label, 2000
Enron received the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Energy Star® Label, a mark of excellence conferred on top-performing buildings that are designed or renovated to reduce harmful air emissions. The Enron building is one of only 95 Energy Star buildings in the nation. Organizations that follow the Energy Star approach can reduce the amount of energy their buildings use by 30 percent on average.
