Newsweek Recognizes Carbonfund.org Partners for Environmental Leadership
Monday, 21 September 2009
Newsweek released its 2009 Green Rankings of America’s largest companies, and Carbonfund.org partners including Dell, Staples and Motorola came out among the leading companies! Dell was recognized for its renewable energy use as well as having its operations carbon neutral through carbon offsets. In addition, Newsweek recognized the company for its product take-back and recycling programs. Carbonfund.org has worked with Dell on its Plant a Tree for Me campaign. You can learn more about it and donate here. We’ve also worked with Staples on in-store/point-of-purchase and other efforts of the company. In addition, the company has increased the use of recycled content in the paper it sells and energy efficiency at its stores. Motorola, which also purchases renewable energy, launched the world’s first carbon neutral mobile phone after working with Carbonfund.org to certify the MOTO W233 Renew phone carbon neutral, earning the CarbonFree® Certified label— the first label in the US for carbon neutral products. Motorola will soon be launching a carbon neutral mobile phone certified by Carbonfund.org in Latin America as well. We applaud our partners for earning the Newsweek honors and look forward to continue working with our partners in helping them achieve their environmental & climate goals. Congratulations!!
