ZOTOS Wins EPA Green Power Leadership Award

Anne Moratto | September 28, 2012 | 9:22 AM

Green is a beautiful color.  Hair care manufacturer Zotos International, Inc. (Zotos) was awarded with a 2012 Green Power Leadership Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), honoring the company for its 3.3 MW on-site wind generation project.

 The annual awards recognize the country’s leading green power users for their commitment and contribution to helping advance the development of the nation’s voluntary green power market. EPA presented Zotos with the award at an event held in conjunction with the 2012 Renewable Energy Markets Conference in Washington, D.C.

 “We are proud to receive this prestigious award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency,” said Anthony Perdigao, Vice President of Operations and Chief Sustainability Officer at Zotos. “To have the EPA recognize us for our years of hard work and dedication means the world to us, our parent company, Shiseido, and our community. We are honored to lead the way for other manufacturers.“

Zotos, along with its Arcadia, Calif.-based JOICO brand, and parent company, Tokyo-based Shiseido, have made significant investments as part of a global sustainability initiative. In addition to the on-site wind project, Zotos’ other efforts include energy-efficient lighting, reductions in water consumption, a significant increase in rail use, and the use of 100 percent recycled materials in most of its packaging. Zotos also engineered the use of plant-based plastics in its bottle production to reduce the company’s dependency on petroleum-based commodities.  

“Salon professionals are highly compassionate people and very engaged in environmental issues,” said Sara Jones, Senior Vice President and General Manager for JOICO and ISO brands at Zotos International. We couldn’t be more proud at Joico to support our industry’s passion to protect our environment, and celebrate the Green Power Leadership award granted to Zotos. We continually strive to provide top performing products that are also environmentally friendly. This is a very important element in Joico’s corporate value commitment.”
