EPA Recognizes FedEx As Leader in Renewable Energy Use

January 29, 2008

FedEx Kinko’s and the FedEx Express Oakland Hub were today recognized by the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Green Power Partnership program as one of 53 Fortune 500 companies investing in green power.

Nearly a year ago, EPA asked Fortune 500 companies to collectively invest in more than 5 billion kilowatt hours (kWh) of green power – electricity that is generated from environmentally renewable resources, such as wind and solar. Today EPA announced that the program exceeded its goal by 130 percent.

The FedEx Express Oakland Hub Facility – a solar electric hub since 2005 – contributed to the goal by generating more than 1.2 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of green power, which can supply up to 80 percent of the facility’s peak energy demand, the equivalent of power used by more than 900 homes during the daytime. The Express Oakland Hub was one of only eight Fortune 500 companies on EPA’s list that acquires green power through an on-site renewable energy system, an innovative and proactive way to help protect the environment.

FedEx Kinko’s ranked on EPA’s Top 10 Retail list with more than 76 million kWh of green power or 32 percent of FedEx Kinko’s total energy consumption. Over 785 FedEx Kinko’s locations in 38 states purchase energy from renewable sources such as wind and solar.
