Lemark Wins Environmental Award

Lemark International Inc. received a Gold Achievement Award from the EPA on Oct. 27 for its efforts in the area of recycling. The EPA program, called WasteWise, aims to eliminate municipal solid waste and industrial wastes by reusing and recycling materials. The program also promotes the buying and manufacturing of products with recycled content.

Lexmark purchases recycled-content material for use in both new construction and renovation projects including walls, flooring, ceiling tiles and carpet according to a company press release. Additionally, seven of the Lexmark facilities have IS0 14001 environmental management systems certification.

Johnson & Johnson Largest Corporate Purchaser Of Renewable Energy

Large businesses are driving the growth of the U.S. voluntary green power markets according to a new report from the U.S. Department of Energy. The study, released at the 10th National Green Power Marketing Conference held in Austin, Texas on Oct. 24, reported that renewable energy capacity in the U.S. now tops 2,200 megawatts (MW), up from 167 MW in 2000. This is supported by voluntary rather than regulatory demand. And one of the largest companies voluntarily purchasing renewable energy is Johnson & Johnson. Committed to reduce its carbon dioxide emissions to 7% below its 1990 levels by 2010, the company is investing in green power as an alternative to fossil fuel energy. In 2004 its green power use was 18% of its worldwide electricity use.
