Texas-based Wilsonart has taken additional steps to improve its energy efficiency and reduce its carbon footprint, according to a company news release.

The company recently bought 35 percent renewable energy credits backed by 100 percent Texas wind-fueled electricity. With this action, Wilsonart will cut more than 22 million pounds of carbon dioxide emissions each year, the news release stated.

Wilsonart worked with iTXU Energy to improve efficiency at its manufacturing facility and to help its employees adopt energy efficiency habits at work and at home.

Wilsonart also has taken steps to reduce its overall electricity consumption, the release stated.

Wilsonart recently hosted a two-day energy fair, during which TXU Energy presented energy-savings ideas. Wilsonart LLC manufactures and distributes high pressure laminates and other engineered decorative surfacing materials and components used in furniture, office and retail space, countertops, worktops and other applications.
