EPA Launches Green Power Partnership

August 2001 - On July 30, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced the Green Power Partnership, a new, voluntary program "aimed at boosting the market for power alternatives that reduce the environmental and health risks of conventional electricity generation." Twenty founding partners have committed to purchase a total of more than 280,000 megawatt-hours of green power over the next year, enough to prevent about 200,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions.

The founding partners include 3M, Batdorf & Bronson Coffee Roasters, Carnegie Mellon University, City of Chicago, City of Portland, City of Santa Monica, Connecticut College, Fetzer Vineyards, Ford Motor Company, General Motors, Interface Flooring Systems, Johnson & Johnson, and Kinko's.
