EPA Recognizes KB Home With 2013 ENERGY STAR Partner Of The Year - Sustained Excellence Award

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recognized KB Home (NYSE: KBH) with a 2013 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year - Sustained Excellence Award for continued leadership in protecting the environment through superior energy efficiency. KB Home is the only builder to receive this award for three years in a row. KB Home’s accomplishments will be recognized at an awards ceremony in Washington, D.C. on March 26, 2013.

KB Home, an ENERGY STAR partner since 2000, will be honored for its long-term commitment to energy efficiency. It has built more than 75,000 ENERGY STAR certified homes since then, and builds all of its new homes to the ENERGY STAR program’s Version 3 guidelines at no added cost to its homebuyers. The U.S. EPA estimates that, in one year, families living in those more than 75,000 ENERGY STAR certified homes will save more than a total of $33 million on their utility bills while preventing greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those from 37,000 vehicles.

“Today’s consumer remains cost-conscious and building our homes to ENERGY STAR standards makes good sense for the environment and, more importantly, good dollars and cents for our homebuyers,” said Jeffrey Mezger, president and chief executive officer of KB Home. “We are proud that the EPA has recognized us once again for our dedication to the ENERGY STAR program and even more proud that we have helped American families reduce their total cost of homeownership for years to come.”

Across the U.S., top companies and organizations are leading the way toward a more energy-efficient future through their participation in ENERGY STAR. Over the last 20 years, with help from ENERGY STAR, American families and businesses have saved more than $230 billion on utility bills and prevented more than 1.8 billion metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions.

"EPA is recognizing KB Home for earning EPA’s highest ENERGY STAR award - the 2013 Partner of the Year - Sustained Excellence Award,” said Bob Perciasepe, Acting Administrator, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. “KB Home leads the field with their commitment to energy efficiency and demonstrates how all Americans can save energy, save money, and create a healthier environment.”
