EPA's Green Power Partnership recognizes companies committed to using more clean energy and reducing pollution.

Valvoline Inc. has been named a member of the Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Power Partnership, according to a recent press release.

The Green Power Partnership is a voluntary program made up of companies and organizations that are committed to EPA’s goals of using more clean energy and reducing pollution.

Valvoline outlined its reasons for joining the program, including using over 7 million kilowatt-hours of green energy annually–accounting for 15% of the company’s total energy usage–and its purchase of renewable energy certificates from mostly renewable energy suppliers.

The company has taken measures to improve the environmental impact of its operations with an over $1.1 million investment in preventive maintenance and energy efficiency upgrades across its company-operated stores in the U.S. This included replacing HVAC systems with newer models, changing to LED lighting, and recycling products such as oil filters, vehicle batteries, and antifreeze.

“It is an honor to be recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for the work our teams have been doing to advance our environmental stewardship,” said Valvoline Inc. President and CEO Lori Flees. “Using green power helps our company reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions footprint, while also advocating for green power as an affordable, accessible choice.”
