Baking & Snack - May 2024 - 14

the Industry
Bakers seek ways to expand their leadership in sustainability
by making it integral to operating more efficiently.
by Dan Malovany

When it comes to sustainability, bakeries are powering
forward and going green in more ways than one. They
recently accounted for more than one-third of the 2023
Energy Star certifications issued by the Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA). In all, the EPA recognized 103
manufacturing plants in the United States for being in
the top 25% for energy efficiency within their respective
industry sectors. Some 36 were commercial bakeries,
leading the industry among 21 manufacturing sectors
that participate in the program.
The biggest of the big are cashing in. Both Bimbo
Bakeries USA, Horsham, Pa., and Flowers Foods,
Thomasville, Ga., had 14 bakeries certified.
" Becoming an Energy Star-certified facility takes
teamwork and dedication, and our bakeries are energized
when they make the list, " noted Margaret Ann
Marsh, senior vice president for safety, sustainability and
environmental, Flowers Foods. " Recognizing these bakeries
and the 'why' behind their certification helps support
the 'share' component of our energy strategy. "
Eric Dell, president
and chief executive officer,
American Bakers Association (ABA), suggested the

Energy Star certifications document the baking industry's
part of a broader movement.
" The commercial baking industry's continued commitment
to the Energy Star program underscores the
significant role our members, and the industry at large,
play in leading the way toward a more sustainable future, "
he explained.
Several bakeries have received certification multiple
times so far, indicating a commitment to energy management
and savings, noted Elizabeth Dutrow, team
leader for the Energy Star Industrial Team, located within
EPA's Climate Protection Partnerships Division.
" We have plants that are among the best in class for
their energy performance and that are saving their companies
money while boosting the environmental performance
of their organization, " she said. " These plants are
achieving this best-in-class energy performance year after
year, so they are sustaining their savings. "
Sustainability is also inextricably linked to efficiency
and return on investment (ROI). In a post-pandemic
world, where the surge of retail sales of baked goods has
settled down, that integrated perspective makes sense.
