WARSAW — Zimmer Biomet Holdings, Inc. (NYSE and SIX: ZBH), a global leader in musculoskeletal healthcare, today announced that its Warsaw, Indiana-based headquarters will be wholly powered by renewable, green energy, in compliance with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Green Power Partnership program.
Green power is zero-emissions electricity that is generated from environmentally preferable renewable resources, such as wind, solar, geothermal, biogas, eligible biomass and low-impact hydro. Zimmer Biomet’s headquarters building will receive green power from Northern Indiana Public Service Company (NIPSCO), an approved provider of green power for the EPA’s Green Power Program, which allows homes and businesses to designate a portion, or all, of their monthly electric usage to be attributable to electricity generated by renewable energy sources.
“We are proud to partner with the EPA and NIPSCO to lead the green power revolution in Indiana by converting 100 percent of our headquarters’ power consumption to renewable energy sources,” said Robin T. Barney, Senior Vice President, Global Operations and Logistics. “Sustainably and responsibly sourcing our electric power is a critical milestone in advancing Zimmer Biomet’s longstanding commitment to sustainability, and we hope our efforts inspire local area businesses and residents to join the EPA’s Green Power Program to collectively reduce our region’s environmental footprint.”
The Green Power Partnership is a voluntary program that encourages organizations to use green power as a way to reduce the environmental impacts associated with electricity use. The Partnership currently has more than 1,400 Partner organizations voluntarily using billions of kilowatt-hours of green power annually. Partners include a wide variety of leading organizations such as Fortune 500® companies; small and medium sized businesses; local, state, and federal governments; and colleges and universities.
