AmeriPride is ENERGY STAR certified

AmeriPride, one of the largest textile and rental supply companies in North America, has earned ENERGY STAR certification at their Minnetonka, Minn., headquarters and another Minneapolis office. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency certification signifies that the buildings perform in the top 25 percent of similar facilities nationwide for energy efficiency and meet strict energy efficiency performance levels. AmeriPride improved its energy performance by making cost-effective improvements to its office buildings, such as adding LED lighting, building a hot isle containment system around its data center servers, installing high efficiency VFD monitors to operate its HVAC systems and utilizing automatic shut-off systems for computers and lighting.
