Viridian Energy has released the inaugural edition of its Sustainability Report, and the first of its kind for a retail energy supplier. Highlights include Viridian’s total annual customer savings of nearly $7 million, and the prevention of more than 46 million pounds of carbon emissions after the company’s first full year of operations. The report includes an in-depth description of voluntary and mandatory energy reporting in all of Viridian’s markets. Viridian Energy is a provider of affordable, green, retail energy.

RecycleMatch has launched a new software technology into the $90 billion recycling business and zero waste market. The RecycleMatch website gives companies an online bidding exchange to buy, sell, or give away large volumes of waste and commodity recyclables. Companies can list materials free of charge, and prospective buyers can make offers on materials which can be reused or upcycled as well as recycled. RecycleMatch is the first online B2B marketplace for business recycling and waste diversion.
