This article claims that $10 billion were saved in energy costs through the initiatives of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency according to the agency's report in October 2005. The report also boasts that with the help of government-backed programs, including ENERGY STAR, more than 57 billion kg of greenhouse gas emissions were prevented from entering the atmosphere. The report also cites the success of partnership programs to achieve significant reductions of non-carbon dioxide gases. Through the combined efforts of methane programs, U.S. methane emissions are expected to be kept below 1990 levels through 2012.
