City of Industry, Calif.—Bentley Mills, a partner in the U.S. Department of Energy’s Better Buildings, Better Plants Program, recently signed on for the Better Plants Challenge, setting a new goal to achieve an additional 25% improvement in energy intensity over the next 10 years while also pledging to be transparent in its energy performance data and energy-efficiency solutions.
In 2010, Bentley pledged to improve energy intensity by 25% at its City of Industry, Calif., mill by 2020. It successfully realized this reduction in 2014—six years ahead of schedule. The company was recently recognized by the Department of Energy for its energy savings accomplishments, according to the DOE’s Fall Progress Update report.
“Bentley’s sustainability program is rooted in a strong culture of environmental stewardship and social responsibility,” said Maya Henderson, sustainability manager for Bentley. “Each day we work to meet a challenge—not only to provide quality carpet products, but to also take innovative steps to aid in the resiliency of the built environment and regeneration of the natural world.”
