  EPA Names Bloomberg as Top 50 Green Power Organization

      Bloomberg Recognized for Industry-Leading Use of Green Electricity

Business Wire

NEW YORK -- August 04, 2010

Bloomberg L.P., a leader in sustainability efforts among global corporations,
has been named by the Environmental Protection Agency as number 30 on its list
of the 50 green power partners using the most renewable electricity and the
only media company in the top 50. Green Power helps to prevent emissions from
conventional power sources that are linked to harmful air pollution and
climate change.

“Purchasing green power helps our organization become more sustainable, while
also sending a message to others across the U.S. that supporting clean sources
of electricity is a sound business decision and an important choice in
reducing climate risk,” said Peter T. Grauer, Chairman of Bloomberg L.P.

The EPA recognized Bloomberg for its annual green power usage of more than
140,000,000 kWh, 59% of its total electricity use. Bloomberg’s green power
resources include biomass and wind power.

The Bloomberg sustainability program is on track to reduce the company’s
carbon footprint 50% by 2013 (from its 2007 baseline) through implementing
energy efficiency measures, increasing renewable resource use and activating
comprehensive waste reduction strategies. Bloomberg has implemented composting
programs in major U.S. offices and has LEED certified offices in the U.S.,
Japan, and U.K.

Bloomberg’s commitment to the environment and the communities in which it
operates extends beyond its own doors – it also engages vendors and customers
in setting standards, promoting clean technologies and reducing natural
resource use. Bloomberg employees use an internal site to share information
and tips about sustainable practices both at the office and at home. BGREEN,
as Bloomberg calls the program, has been widely embraced, and is now an
ingrained part of the company’s culture.
