Survey Recognizes IBM as Greenest Company in U.S.
Company continues its
commitment to environmental sustainability and efficient IT infrastructure
IBM has recently been recognized for the second
consecutive year as the greenest company in the U.S., according to the Newsweek
2012 Green Rankings survey. A panel of independent judges ranked major
companies based on numerous criteria, including their environmental impact,
environmental management and sustainability disclosure. The survey is
regarded as one of the most comprehensive analyses of environmental leadership,
and IBM was one of 500 large U.S.
The report notes that IBM'S Smarter Planet products
and services help clients measure and reduce their resource consumption while
saving money. It points to a system
developed at the company's Zurich Research Lab, where water that cools a
supercomputer is used to warm nearby buildings.
"Environmental sustainability benefits
our clients, our company and the planet, and we are constantly striving for
continual improvement,” said Wayne Balta, IBM's Vice President of Corporate
Environmental Affairs and Product Safety. “We are grateful for this
recognition as it reflects the long term commitment of IBM and its people to
environmental leadership throughout the company's global business
