BOLINGBROOK, Ill., April 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Blomberg is proud to announce it has received the 2021 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year Sustained Excellence Award. This is the third year in a row Blomberg received this highest ENERGY STAR honor recognizing organizations that have been named Partner of the Year for consecutive years. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced the award today in recognition of Blomberg’s superior leadership and contributions to the ENERGY STAR initiative.
“A focus on energy efficiency and living in harmony with nature is one of Blomberg’s key missions as a growing major appliance brand among builders, designers, and architects of multi-unit homes,” said Salih Zeki Bugay, director of marketing and product management. “We pride ourselves on manufacturing major appliances that meet LEED energy efficiency requirements and provide a beautiful fit and finish for any living space. Along with our parent company Arçelik A.Ş.—the only Turkish industrial company listed in the Dow Jones Sustainability Emerging Markets Index—we incorporate the concepts of conservation and sustainability into every aspect of our business.”
Blomberg works with distribution partners throughout the US and Canada to offer 20 kitchen and laundry appliances that have achieved EPA Most Efficient certification.
The 2021 ENERGY STAR recognition stems from Blomberg’s recent achievements.
Innovative products: Fifteen Blomberg appliances are among the products awarded the 2021 ENERGY STAR Most Efficient mark. To encourage faster marketplace entry for emerging technologies, this coveted extension of the ENERGY STAR label singles out appliances that meet rigorous energy-efficiency criteria and deliver significant innovation.
Industry leadership: Blomberg’s product team worked directly with ENERGY STAR in 2020, providing technical comments on proposed ENERGY STAR and ENERGY STAR Most Efficient criteria changes and presenting on emerging technology at the annual ENERGY STAR Partner Meeting. The company also educates and actively engages with industry stakeholder groups, including offering ENERGY STAR training to architects, designers, and builders.
“We at Beko US, Inc. are dedicated to designing, manufacturing, and introducing continuous sustainable products to the marketplace. Not just our products, but our lifestyles are shaped by sustainability—using natural resources as efficiently as possible, being conscious about our own and our customers’ health and wellbeing, and making a commitment to the environment,” Bugay said. “Our partnership with ENERGY STAR is key to accomplishing this goal. We are incredibly honored to be recognized for our efforts and ongoing investment in the planet’s future.”
“I congratulate the 2021 ENERGY STAR award winners,” US Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Michael S. Regan said. “They inspire all of us who are committed to tackling the climate crisis and leading the way to a clean energy economy.”
