WASHINGTON — Nationwide Marketing Group (NMG) received a 2010 Excellence in Appliance Retailing Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) last week for its outstanding contributions to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

The honor, which recognizes Nationwide’s efforts to market and promote energy-efficient products, was bestowed at an EPA awards ceremony here.

Specifically, the award lauds NMG for successfully increasing sales and messaging of Energy Star-qualified products, engaging in Energy Star promotional opportunities, educating customers about the benefits of energy efficiency, and participating in various Energy Star campaigns.

The $12 billion buying organization for independent appliance, electronics and furniture dealers has been an Energy Star partner since the program’s inception.

“Nationwide Marketing Group and Energy Star have a mission-critical partnership,” said Richard Weinberg, the group’s appliance merchandising VP. “More and more of our customers are looking for innovative Energy Star-qualified products that save money and protect the environment. By offering products that have earned the Energy Star, we are working to fulfill our customers’ needs while helping address climate change.”

Nationwide plans to tout the EPA award in its marketing collateral for member dealers.
