WhiteWave wins award for being green
Dec 7, 2006 8:55 AM, from staff and wire reports
WhiteWave Foods Co was named a 2006 Green Power Leadership Award winner by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the US Department of Energy (DOE) at an award ceremony at the National Renewable Energy Marketing Conference in San Francisco CA.
The company, which has been on the list of top 25 green power purchasers each year since 2004, was recognized for the contributions its Silk and Horizon Organic brands have made toward development and use of renewable energy.
Both Silk and Horizon Organic offset 100 percent of the electricity used in manufacturing their products by buying wind energy Green Tags from Bonneville Environmental Foundation. Green Tags represent the real savings in carbon dioxide and other pollutants that occur when clean, renewable power replaces power produced from burning fossil fuels, including coal and natural gas, in the national electric grid.
