LATHAM, N.Y. - June 15, 2017 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Plug Power Inc. (NASDAQ:PLUG), a leader in providing energy solutions that change the way the world moves, has been named to the Top Green Providers list for 2017 by Food Logistics, the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global food supply chain.
Food Logistics' annual Top Green Providers recognizes companies whose products, services, or exemplary leadership is enhancing sustainability within the food and beverage industry. Each year, the criteria for earning a spot on the list become more stringent for applicants.
Plug Power has proven its commitment to offering food and beverage companies a sustainable power solution for their material handling equipment. From modest fleet-sized customers, like Youngs Market and Dietz and Watson, to large movers, like Walmart, Kroger and Carrefour in Europe, Plug Power has helped customers convert their material handling fleets to GenDrive fuel cell power.
Running on hydrogen as a fuel source, Plug Power's fuel cell systems generate electricity with only heat and water as a byproduct of the energy creation process. Through adoption, Plug Power customers have seen up to an 80% reduction in site greenhouse gas emissions. Today, Plug Power customers have operated with fuel cell power for more than 135 million hours and have completed more than 6.6 million hydrogen forklift fuelings.
"Plug Power customers have set an example for how green solutions can be adopted in a way that increases performance, revenue, and profitability for the business," said Andy Marsh, CEO of Plug Power. "Our solutions are truly making a difference in how food and beverages are moved around the world, and we're proud to have made the Top Green Providers List for 2017."
"The future viability of the world's food supply chain is dependent upon our ability to integrate sustainability from farm to fork," says Lara L. Sowinski, editorial director. "Transportation and logistics comprise a significant part of that supply chain, and we commend those companies in our industry that embrace their role as environmental stewards, while raising the sustainability bar for their peers."
