Aggressively Investing in Energy Efficiency

The Global Energy Management (GEM) program strategically manages global energy with consideration to energy productivity, supply reliability, and environmental impact. Our mission is to become world-class in the way we purchase and use energy.

“Over the past 10 years, Corning’s energy management teams have increased the company’s energy efficiency by 32.2 percent,” said Dr. David Morse, Corning’s executive vice president and chief technology officer. “We will continue to invest in these energy-reduction efforts, while assessing renewable energy sources to help make Corning a greener and more energy-efficient company. “We have taken a major step in this direction by entering a 25-year agreement to purchase electricity from Duke Energy Renewables’ new solar installation in Conetoe, North Carolina, which will supply enough clean energy to the electric grid to equal the approximate annual usage of our Harrodsburg, Kentucky, plant.”

Since its launch in 2006, GEM has saved the company more than $421 million in cumulative energy costs.


Partnership to Protect the Environment

Early in 2015, we were honored to be named an ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for the second year in a row.

“Corning’s role in energy management is helping reduce our nation’s greenhouse gas emissions that fuel climate change and preserve a healthy planet for future generations,” said EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy.

Corning was recognized for the rapid maturation of its energy management, environmental performance, and greenhouse gas emission-control efforts.

“We committed ourselves to ongoing improvements, and this award demonstrates that we are making terrific progress in our energy journey,” said Wendell P. Weeks, Corning Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
