Efficient use of renewable energy sources is not only good for the environment, it’s also very good for business. Here are some of the ways we’ve put energy savings to work:
- Over 40% of Leggett & Platt’s U.S. electric consumption is produced from nuclear energy – twice the national average.
- Over 70% of our Canadian electric consumption is produced by nuclear energy and hydro power.
- We operate branches in 15 states that have passed mandatory Renewable Portfolio Standards. Approximately 15% of the company’s U.S. electric consumption will be supplied by renewable energy under these standards.
- We have established a corporate sourcing protocol for Green-e certified renewable energy credits, and purchased our first RECs in 2009.
Green-e is the nation's leading independent consumer protection program for the sale of renewable energy and greenhouse gas reductions in the retail market. Green-e offers certification and verification of renewable energy and greenhouse gas-mitigation products. It is a program of the Center for Resource Solutions.
