Assurant Health Energy Conservation Efforts Result In Second EPA ENERGY STAR® Certification

Assurant Health has earned the Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR ® certification for the second consecutive year.

Certification indicates that a building performs in the top 25 percent of similar facilities nationwide for energy efficiency and meets EPA performance levels. An ENERGY STAR-certified facility uses less energy, is less expensive to operate, and causes fewer greenhouse gas emissions than its peers.

“We’re pleased to receive the EPA ENERGY STAR certification for 2012,” said Assurant Health President and CEO Adam Lamnin. “Not only is energy efficiency the right thing to do for the environment, but also it generates a cost-savings for our business.”

Over the last several years, Assurant Health has incorporated new energy-saving initiatives into its day-to-day operations. By installing more efficient lighting and other energy-reduction methods, it cut energy use 7.9 percent.

Assurant Health first earned the ENERGY STAR designation in 2011. Its Milwaukee headquarters, which the company has occupied since 1990, is the third Assurant facility to earn the ENERGY STAR certification. The prestigious designation has also been earned by an Assurant Specialty Property service center in Springfield, Ohio, and the Assurant Employee Benefits’ headquarters in Kansas City, MO.

ENERGY STAR was introduced by the EPA in 1992 as a voluntary, market-based partnership to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficiency. Today, the ENERGY STAR label can be found on more than 60 different kinds of products as well as new homes and commercial and industrial buildings that meet strict energy-efficiency specifications set by the EPA.
