Green-e Marketplace Program Expands

February 2009 - The Center for Resource Solutions (CRS) announced that participation in its Green-e Marketplace program grew substantially in 2008. Under the Marketplace program, organizations that buy Green-e Certified renewable energy (or generate their own electricity) can apply to use the Green-e logo in their annual reports, displays, marketing collateral, select product packaging and corporate Web sites to promote their renewable energy use. In 2008, total purchases by Green-e Marketplace participants exceeded 2.8 million MWh, which represented a 50% increase from the previous year, and a number of new companies representing a variety of industries joined the program. The new participants included Avatar New York, Beaulieu Commercial, Becton Dickinson Infusion Therapy Systems, Inc., Cascades Tissue Group, Hall Street Storage, Intel Corporation, K-1 Packaging Group, Marian Heath Greeting Cards, Millipore Corporation, The Philadelphia Phillies, Solberg Manufacturing, and Unboundary.
