The Bausch & Lomb Inc. headquarters building earned an Energy Star rating for energy efficiency from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, company officials announced Tuesday.
Commercial buildings earning an Energy Star rating use an average of 40 percent less energy than typical buildings and release 35 percent less carbon into the atmosphere, officials said. The USEPA awards Energy Star ratings to buildings scoring 75 or higher on an energy performance rating scale of 100.
“The Energy Star rating helps demonstrate Bausch & Lomb’s commitment to sustainability and environmental stewardship,” said Steve Haupt, Bausch & Lomb’s director for corporate real estate.
