Columbia, MD (3/28/2023)—Global Facility Solutions is proud to announce that it has received the 2023 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy.

“Promoting energy efficiency and sustainable building operations has always been at the core of our business solutions,” said Robert Calloway, P.E., Founder and CEO of Global Facility Solutions. “We are honored to be recognized for our efforts by being selected for the Energy Star Partner of the Year Award for the second straight year.”

The ENERGY STAR program honors a select group of businesses and organizations each year that have made outstanding contributions in the transition to a clean energy economy. ENERGY STAR award winners lead their industries in the production, sale, and adoption of energy-efficient products, homes, buildings, services, and strategies. These efforts are essential to improving the environment, moving the green economy forward, protecting public health, and creating a clean energy future.

“As we accelerate historic efforts to address climate change, public-private partnerships will be essential to realizing the scale of our ambition,” said EPA Administrator Michael S. Regan. “I applaud this year’s ENERGY STAR award winners for working with EPA to deliver a clean energy future that saves American consumers and businesses money and creates jobs.”

As an ENERGY STAR partner, Global Facility Solutions helps building owners to obtain ENERGY STAR certification, which means the buildings “save energy, save money, and help protect the environment by generating fewer greenhouse gas emissions than typical buildings.”

From local clients in the Mid-Atlantic region to Fortune 500 commercial building owners nationwide, GFS assists property owners in identifying and adopting Energy Conservation Measures to reduce energy consumption, make thoughtful and lasting investments, and implement sustainable practices.
