Titan America LLC today announced its partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy's Energy Star Program. As a condition of the partnership, Titan America agrees to submit to independent monitoring of its energy efficiency. This will include base lining, tracking and benchmarking the company's energy performance, using tools offered through Energy Star.

"By making a commitment to improved energy performance, Titan America is on the way to enhancing its bottom line while demonstrating environmental leadership," said Elizabeth Dutrow, Director, Industrial Sector Partnerships with Energy Star. "Senior executives are key to developing robust energy strategies and both challenging and enabling their businesses to succeed."

Titan America will continue to implement its plan to reduce energy intensity across all operations using strategies provided by the program. "Titan has embedded corporate social responsibility and sustainability into all of its operations. These principles are based on the deeply-rooted belief that these are not only good business practices but an ethical responsibility," said Aris Papadopoulos, Chief Executive Officer of Titan America.

Last year, both of Titan's cement plants, Roanoke Cement Company LLC in Troutville, VA and Pennsuco Cement in Medley, FL, were recipients of the Energy Star Award recognizing manufacturers' energy efficient solutions that save money while protecting the environment and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Roanoke Cement Company also received Energy Star recognition in 2007.
