For their voluntary leadership in reducing energy use and preventing 
pollution in common-sense, cost-
effective ways, Panasonic, Sears, Whirlpool and 29 other organizations will 
receive Energy Star Partner of the Year
Awards from EPA Administrator Carol M. Browner at a banquet in Washington, 
D.C. tonight.
The eighth annual awards, now sponsored by EPA and the U.S. Department of 
Energy, will recognize the
energy efficiency investments made by these Energy Star Partners that 
improved their profitability and contributed
to a cleaner environment. Winners are selected based upon their ability to 
utilize energy-efficient technologies,
communicate energy efficiency benefits to consumers and business, and 
recruit others to join the Energy Star
"The Clinton/Gore Administration believes that a strong economy and a 
healthy environment go hand-in-
hand," Browner said. "Products with the Energy Star label save consumers 
and businesses billions of dollars each
year while reducing millions of tons of harmful pollutants. By voluntarily 
working to save energy and reduce
pollution, the recipients of the awards are leading America to a cleaner 
future through energy efficiency."
The EPA ENERGY STAR Program identifies the most energy-efficient products, 
homes and buildings. This makes
it easy for businesses and consumers to choose equipment and initiate 
building upgrades that save money and reduce
the need for energy and power generation - thereby cutting air and global 
warming pollution. To date, Energy Star
Programs have prevented the annual release of more than 20 million metric 
tons of greenhouse gases. The energy
reductions from these products have saved U.S. consumers and businesses 
more than nine billion in energy costs
since 1992. Simply by using Energy Star products the average household can 
save $400 per year.
The 32 winners will receive awards in five categories. They are:
