CITGO Petroleum Corporation has joined the Energy Star program of the US Environmental Protection Agency as an Energy Star Partner.
Building on the Corpus Christi refinery’s Energy Star certification, participation as an Energy Star partner will become a company-wide focus.
“Voluntary participation as an Energy Star partner is in line with our continued commitment to operational excellence,” said Carlos Jorda, President and CEO of CITGO. “Joining Energy Star provides access to a vast network of industry partners so that we can continue to learn and improve our energy efficiency as we prepare ourselves for a low carbon economy.”
Cindy Jacobs, Energy Star Commercial and Industrial Branch Head, said: “Improving the energy efficiency of our nation’s industrial facilities is an important step in helping protect the environment.”
CITGO facilities have multiple manufacturing processes and energy requirements that include the Lake Charles, Lemont and Corpus Christi refineries; lubricant packaging plants in Oklahoma City, Cicero and Atlanta; terminal location; and the Houston headquarters building.
Employees will participate through a dedicated team of energy efficiency leaders. Recognizing the critical role energy efficiency plays in the sustainability of its operations, CITGO began preparations by engaging staff, identifying a supportive organizational structure and hosting an energy summit. At the summit, employees, industry experts and thought leaders presented innovative ways the company can use to improve energy use; Some of which are already in motion. Participation as an Energy Star partner was a logical next step in these efforts.
