Cosmetics packaging supplier Multi Packaging Solutions (MPS), has joined the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Green Power Partnership in a bid to promote corporate responsibility and environmental leadership.

The voluntary program encourages organizations to purchase green power as a way to reduce the environmental impacts associated with electricity usage, helping to reduce the demand for fossil fuels and the associated emission of greenhouse gases.

Multi Packaging Solutions recently qualified for this voluntary program following its switch to 25% renewable energy at its manufacturing facilities in Texas and New Jersey.

By purchasing green energy, MPS claims that it has reduced its carbon dioxide emissions by over 1,500 tons per year.

According to the US EPA, the company’s green power purchase of more than 2 million kWh is equivalent to avoiding the carbon dioxide emissions of nearly 300 passenger vehicles per year or the CO2 emissions from the electricity use of more than 200 average American homes annually.
