Travelers’ Unveiling Ceremony for Energy Star Scheduled for Oct. 6

October 3, 2006

St. Paul Travelers will hold an unveiling ceremony to celebrate its new ENERGY STAR(R) label, awarded through a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy, according to a company release.

A plaque commemorating the designation will be unveiled at the St. Paul Travelers’ offices by representatives of the EPA, the Minnesota Department of Commerce, the City of Saint Paul, and St. Paul Travelers.

The ENERGY STAR(R) label distinguishes the buildings of the St. Paul Travelers campus as among the most energy efficient in the United States, the release said. The event also serves to kick off the participation of St. Paul Travelers in the EPA’s Climate Leaders program, an effort by U.S. corporations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. St. Paul Travelers is also unveiling an ENERGY STAR(R) label awarded to its campus in Hartford, Conn., at a simultaneous event.

The event will be co-hosted by St. Paul Travelers Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer Andy Bessette, EPA Deputy Regional Administrator Norman Niedergang, Minnesota Commissioner of Commerce Glenn Wilson, and Anne Hunt, Deputy Policy Director-Environment for Mayor Coleman.

The unveiling will be held at North Building, 2nd Floor Atrium of St. Paul Travelers, 385 Washington Street, St. Paul, on Friday, Oct. 6, 2006, at 10 a.m. (CT)

The EPA introduced ENERGY STAR in 1992 as a voluntary, market-based partnership to reduce air pollution through increased energy efficiency.

St. Paul Travelers is a provider of property casualty insurance.
