| May 20, 2011

AMES, Iowa and ST. JOSEPH, Mo. – Becker Underwood Inc., has announced the completion of the installation of 84 solar panels on their facility in Saint Joseph, Mo. The solar panels will reduce the facility’s carbon dioxide emissions by 789 tons over 25 years and produce renewable energy for the site.

The project was completed as part of Becker Underwood’s overall sustainability strategy to protect and reduce the company’s impact on the environment, as well as to reduce their exposure to increasing energy prices. Last year, the company began developing the framework for the implementation of its sustainability strategy, “NET Positive.” This concept cultivates each of the three pillars of sustainability: economic growth, environmental stewardship and societal contributions.

“We are excited about the completion of this solar panel project, which marks an important continuation in our journey to becoming a more sustainable company,” said Daniel Krohn, sustainability lead for Becker Underwood. “Becker Underwood is committed to being a leader in its sustainability efforts and we plan to continually seek new and innovative technologies to reduce our impact on the environment.”
