Corporations for Clim|
South Portland, Maine − Fairchild Semiconductor recently
hosted the annual Northeast Corporations for Climate Action meeting at the company's Western Avenue plant.
Organized by Clean Air-Cool Planet (CA-CP), a non-profit organization based in Portsmouth, New Hampshire that is

Northeast Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative and the Governor's Carbon Challenge. CA-CP works with companies to

friendly company because of its significant efforts to protect air and water quality and to reduce its carbon
emissions. As part of the CA-CP annual meeting, Fairchild provided a tour of the South Portland manufacturing plant,

fuel consumption. For example, the attendees saw first hand how Fairchild makes chilled water during the "heating
season" by using the outside air to cool water instead of the alternative approach of running electric chillers. In
addition, panelists from Fairchild explained how the c ompany plans to continue voluntarily reducing its carbon
emissions through commitments it made with the EPA Performance Track Program, The Maine Department of Environmental
Protection Step-Up Program and Climate Leaders.
