(3BL Media / theCSRfeed) August 16, 2011 - NYSE Euronext is taking steps to certify the company as carbon neutral, making it the only global exchange operator with such a status. The company has purchased renewable-energy certificates and carbon offsets to neutralize the environmental impact of its global operations. The initiative complements the company’s other energy-efficiency efforts such as solar electricity panels installed at its Basildon, England data center that provide 20 percent of its power. Last year, NYSE Euronext was named to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index and the Carbon Disclosure Project’s S.& P. 500 Leadership Index.

Arizona Public Service has teamed up with the Phoenix Mercury of the Women’s National Basketball Association to host an eco-friendly game with the Atlanta Dream. For the event, the Mercury’s arena was powered by 40,000 kilowatt-hours of renewable energy provided by APS. Selected fans received compact fluorescent light bulbs. And a display promoted APS’s Refrigerator Recycling Program, through which APS will pick up an old, energy-inefficient refrigerator from a customer’s home for free, provide a $30 rebate, and recycle 95 percent of the unit. To top off the event, the Mercury beat the Dream 109-95.
