Suburban Propane's green initiatives focus on innovative solutions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions
Suburban Propane has registered its "Go Green with Suburban Propane" logo with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). The trademark registration provides Suburban Propane with the exclusive right to use the trademark with the various goods and services covered by the registration that pertain to its green initiative, including in connection with flyers and newsletters related to the benefits of propane usage and green architecture, and a website featuring energy efficiency information about those same topics.
The "Go Green with Suburban Propane" initiative focuses on the company's commitment to advocating for the clean burning attributes of propane in the transition to a sustainable energy future and to investing in innovative solutions to pave the way to zero-carbon emissions. When compared to gasoline and diesel, propane and renewable propane can significantly reduce the harmful contributors to greenhouse gases. Renewable propane possesses lower carbon intensity than traditional propane, with no change in performance and handling.
"As one of the leading distributors of propane in the United States, we are committed to educating our customers, legislators and other key stakeholders on the benefits of propane in meeting aggressive carbon reduction targets," said Nandini Sankara, Spokesperson, Suburban Propane. "With our 'Go Green with Suburban Propane' logo officially registered, this further solidifies our commitment to pioneer a cleaner, more sustainable energy future through innovation, technology, and key investments."
As part of the green initiatives, Suburban Propane has: partnered with U-Haul® to provide eco-friendly, renewable propane in California; purchased a 39% equity stake in Oberon Fuels, Inc., a development-stage producer of low carbon, renewable Dimethyl Ether (rDME) transportation fuel, which is focused on the research and development of a practical and affordable pathway to zero-emission transportation through its proprietary production process; and continued to commit itself to innovation and making investments to bring an even cleaner version of propane to the market.
