Wartburg Awarded Green Business Partnership Award

Wartburg was recently awarded an Energy Award from the Green Business Partnership (GBP) making Wartburg the first long term care facility to receive this certification in Westchester County. GBP recognized Wartburg for demonstrating “extensive accomplishments across all program areas: organization commitment, energy, waste management, transportation, land use and water” and for “going above and beyond in their commitment to environmental sustainability and corporate citizenship.”

Wartburg has also created a “Green Committee” as part of its campus-wide Green Initiative. This group, made up of staff, board, residents and volunteers, helps ensure all members of their community are educated about the company’s efforts to promote environmental sustainability and be involved in supporting their environmental goals.

As part of this initiative, Wartburg upgraded approximately 5,000 fixtures across its 34-acre campus to include 11,000 new LED lamps, earning them an inaugural Eco Award from County Executive George Latimer and the Westchester County Department of Environmental Facilities.

Lippolis Electric, Inc. of Pelham partnered with Wartburg on the replacement of all florescent and incandescent bulbs with LEDs on the Wartburg campus.

Wartburg has also conducted a campus-wide energy assessment to further determine ways to reduce their environmental footprint as well as save energy costs including analyzing heating and cooling, appliances and renewable.
