Energy Marathon 2.0

October 3 - 29

ENERGY MARATHON 3.0

WELCOME TO THE ENERGY MARATHON 3.0

As a manufacturer, energy efficiency is crucial to maintaining competitiveness in the market place. Conducting Energy Marathons allows us to bring energy efficiency to the forefront–boosting employee engagement through a fun and friendly competition. The successes of the 2016 Energy Marathon has encouraged us to continue this tradition in the hope of saving more energy, and carbon, further reducing our environmental impacts, and creating lasting habits for our employees in the office and at home.

The Energy Marathon starts on October 3rd and ends on October 29th, but the competition doesn't stop there. This year’s competition will require similar facility types to partner with each other to share best practices. Teams will compete in pairs and a winning pair will be chosen from each type of site: manufacturing, office, and distribution.

The three winning pairs at the end of the 26.2 days will go head to head for the ultimate title of Energy Marathon 3.0 Champion. The winners with the largest electricity reduction in the following several months will be named the ultimate Energy Marathon 3.0 champion and will be awarded the traveling trophy and a site celebration.

THE TRAVELING TROPHY

Congratulations to the team in Hickory, NC for outpacing the competition by achieving a 16.3% reduction in energy intensity through March 2017, compared to the same time period a year ago.
