Washington, D.C., United States, 17 April 2018: The U.S. Department of Energy (DoE) and the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) have announced the Sustainability in Manufacturing partnership, in a Press communiqué.

“Through this partnership, fostered by DoE’s Better Plants program, DoE and the NAM will work together to help US manufacturers drive energy-productivity improvements and accelerate adoption of energy-efficient technologies,” the communiqué said.

“The Sustainability in Manufacturing partnership will provide DoE and the NAM the opportunity to engage directly with manufacturers, identify opportunities for energy-efficiency improvements, and serve as a platform to recognise companies and leaders that have led the way in the application of innovative strategies,” the communiqué further said.

Commenting on the partnership, Rick Perry, Secretary of Energy, United States, said: “Working alongside our private-sector partners, we are driving cost savings and a stronger, more secure, US industrial base. The Department’s partnership with the National Association of Manufacturers will further spotlight industrial leadership and boost awareness of the resources across the DoE enterprise to boost manufacturing competitiveness through energy savings.”

Commenting on the role of manufacturers, Jay Timmons, President and CEO, NAM, said, “Manufacturers accept the responsibility to better the future of our communities, our environment and our children, which is why, over the past decade, we have reduced emissions by 10%, even as our value to the economy has increased 19%.”
