CEA Member Companies, Tech Corporations Top Newsweek’s ‘Greenest’ List
Arlington, VA – 10/25/2012 – The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)® today applauded the CEA member companies and technology industry companies that have been recognized by Newsweek as among the nation’s greenest corporations. CEA members IBM, Hewlett-Packard and Dell took three of the top five spots on the overall list, which ranked America’s 500 largest publicly traded companies based on their environmental footprint, corporate management and transparency.  
The following CEA member companies took seven of the top 15 spots on the list, demonstrating that they widely employ sustainable initiatives and innovative practices: IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Dell, Nvidia, Intel, Accenture and Microsoft.
“CEA member companies are demonstrating our industry’s commitment to furthering sustainability initiatives through innovation,” said Gary Shapiro, CEA’s president and CEO. “The overwhelming presence of technology companies at the top of the Newsweek list illustrates that our members are driving our industry and leading green efforts.”
According to Newsweek, “Technology is one of the greenest industries, with corporations competing against one another to ‘green’ their products and operations.”
Trade Show Executive magazine recently recognized the International CES®, the world’s largest annual innovation event, which is owned and produced by CEA, as the event that demonstrated “The Most Innovative Green Initiatives by Show Management.” The overall recycling rate at the 2012 CES was an industry-leading 75 percent. Additionally, CEA donated $50,000 to Green Chips for solar panel installation at the Las Vegas Rescue Mission, and another $25,000 to Repurpose AMERICA for sun shades at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) Rebel Recycling facility.
