The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Energy (DOE) named Osram Sylvania an Energy Star Partner of the Year for its effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by making and promoting energy-efficient products.

By the end of 2003, 65% of the Sylvania compact fluorescent product line will be Energy Star qualified. This includes 17 compact fluorescent models in 41 packaging configurations. Included are a new three-way CFL, a G25 Globe, a 14-watt A-shaped lamp equivalent to a standard 60-watt incandescent, a decorative flame shaped CFL and additional lamp types added to the Minitwist family, and a BR40 reflector flood CFL.

The Energy Star award is given to manufacturers and retailers that successfully promote and deliver Energy Star qualified products, saving consumers money and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Award winners are selected from thousands of organizations that participate in the Energy Star program.
