The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recognized Delta Products Corporation with a 2016 Energy Star® Partner of the Year — Product Brand Owner Award.

Delta received the recognition for its Breez ventilation fans, which the company says exemplifies its commitment to energy efficiency and dedication to creating sustainable and environmentally-friendly products without sacrificing performance.

In honor of its contributions and efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, Delta will be recognized at the Energy Star Awards Ceremony in Washington on April 13, 2016.

"Delta's Energy Star certified products are helping Americans save money, save energy, and do their part to reduce our nation's greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change," said EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy. "Delta's efforts demonstrate a strong commitment to energy efficiency and to preserving a healthy planet for future generations."

"The Delta Breez has become synonymous with innovation and sustainability," said Rita Carbone-Lawson, national sales manager for Breez Ventilation Products. "We're honored to be recognized for our efforts by our longtime partner, Energy Star. It's exciting to see the impact our Delta Breez fans have made on emissions reductions and we pledge to continue delivering products that will protect the environment and minimize our carbon footprint."

Delta officials said the company’s efforts to improve energy efficiency and promote sustainability go beyond product performance to encompass education. As part of this endeavor, the company has implemented training in Energy Star practices for all employees, distributors and retailers, in addition to incorporating Energy Star messaging within its website and product materials.
