Campaign: Bloomberg: Sustainable Business
In October of 2012, Bloomberg became the first news organization in the world to receive the WindMade label, a global consumer designation for companies that use wind energy and other renewable sources. The label, which is backed by the UN Global Compact and conservation group WWF, requires participating companies to obtain at least 25% of their electricity from wind power. Bloomberg’s U.S. operations achieved WindMade certification by offsetting 58% of its power consumption with wind-based RECs, and a further 25% with biomass. In general, we feel the designation not only demonstrates a commitment to renewable energy, it provides discerning consumers a way to choose companies and products that utilize wind power.
