Specialty-film and tape maker Intertape Polymer Group cut its way to designation as a 2014 Energy Star Partner of the Year by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

IPG reduced energy use and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions at its operating locations with a program that has saved the company nearly $2 million since 2009, and decreased carbon-dioxide emissions by 26,000 metric tons in the last two years.

“The network of Energy Star Industrial Partners has provided a great deal of assistance to help IPG improve its energy program,” Mike Jones, IPG’s corporate energy manager, said in a statement. “With the help of Energy Star, energy efficiency has become part of our corporate culture.”

Intertape has 1,850 employees who work in 16 locations to develop, manufacture and sell a variety of pressure-sensitive, water-activated and woven-coated papers, films and fabrics for industrial and retail uses.

The company has headquarters in Montreal, Quebec, and Sarasota, Fla., and 10 manufacturing facilities.

IPG was selected as one of this year’s Energy Star award winners from 16,000 participants in the program started by the EPA in 1992. Awards were given out April 29 at a recognition event in Washington, D.C.

The EPA says the Energy Star program has helped U.S. families and businesses save $297 billion on utility bills and prevent more than 2.1 billion metric tons of GHG emissions through 2013.
