ING to be Powered by Wind

By: ClimateBiz.com

HARTFORD, Conn., ING announced in September its intent to buy enough renewable wind energy to power its U.S. operations.

The announcement is one of several corporate environmental initiatives unveiled this week. For instance, Dell said Wednesday it planned to neutralize the carbon dioxide emissions of its worldwide operations beginning next year.

ING, a global financial institution, also plans to go carbon neutral. The purchase of 70 million kilowatt-hours of wind energy credits will help it achieve its goal of becoming carbon neutral by the end of this year.

"We make decisions about sustainability every day at ING, which is why we are part of a worldwide dialogue that addresses climate change and why we focus on developing strategies to mitigate ING's impact on the environment," Tom McInerney, ING Executive Board member and chairman and CEO of ING Insurance Americas, said in a statement.

The company announced its plans to meet its carbon neutral goal earlier this year by reducing emissions rooted in energy consumption and travel.

For example, the company retrofitted its Windsor, Conn., office building currently under construction with energy-efficient products and systems, such as sensors that turn off lights in unoccupied spaces.

The two-year wind energy purchase will power the company's 11 large facilities across the country, as well as nearly 100 smaller regional offices.

ING also offsets it international business travel by supporting the planting of 300 hectares of degraded tropical rainforest in Malaysia, the company said. Source: GreenBiz.com

I'm glad to see companies such as this making a large commitment to green energy. If enough people make the switch, the technology will eventually get cheaper - when this occurs, more and more people will use this alternative to fossil fuels, coal and the likes. This is not only good for the environment but our health as well. Florida malpractice insurance will still be needed, but I'm sure everyone's health and well being will see an increase!
