Trade association recognized for second consecutive year leading asphalt pavement industry’s energy efficiency efforts.

GREENBELT, MD—For the second consecutive year, the National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) is honored to receive the 2024 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for demonstrating exemplary commitment and dedication to leadership in energy efficiency and the ENERGY STAR program.

Each year, the ENERGY STAR program honors a select group of businesses and organizations that have made outstanding contributions to energy efficiency and the transition to a clean energy economy. ENERGY STAR award winners lead their industries in the production, sale, and adoption of energy-efficient products, homes, buildings, services, and strategies. These efforts have saved more than 5 trillion kilowatt-hours of electricity over the past 30 years.

“Private sector partners through programs like ENERGY STAR are leading the way,” said EPA Administrator Michael S. Regan. “I congratulate this year’s ENERGY STAR award winners for their innovation and leadership, in delivering cost-effective energy efficient solutions that create jobs, address climate change, and contribute to a healthier environment for all.”

In the past year, NAPA raised visibility of the ENERGY STAR program and championed energy efficiency as a key decarbonization strategy at industry events and in trade press, including:

“NAPA is proud of our industry’s efforts to manage and reduce energy consumption,” said Joseph Shacat, NAPA’s Director, Sustainable Pavements. “Industry participation in ENERGY STAR initiatives reflects the increasing importance of energy efficiency as companies prepare for low embodied carbon procurement and Buy Clean policies.”

Winners are selected from a network of thousands of ENERGY STAR partners. For a complete list of 2024 winners and more information about ENERGY STAR’s awards program, visit EnergyStar.gov/AwardWinners.
