Earning EPA's ENERGY STAR for superior energy performance is yet another recognition of Verizon Wireless' ongoing commitment to environmentally friendly "green" practices. In 2008, Verizon Wireless was the only wireless carrier named to IDG Computerworld's first-ever list of top Green-IT Companies. Research firm Frost & Sullivan also awarded the company with its 2008 Green Excellence of the Year Award in the Corporate Leadership category for the telecom services industry. Verizon Wireless has more than 60 retail stores that have earned the ENERGY STAR.

The Communications Store located at 9813 South Blvd in Charlotte, NC utilized the following energy efficiency measures:
-- Using
ENERGY STAR qualified equipment.
-- Installing efficient compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) and high intensity discharge (HID) bulbs.
-- Using p
hotocells for exterior lighting and signage.
Calibrating thermostats.
Optimizing start up time and equipment sequencing.
Limiting after hours control usage.
Adjusting ventilation to reduce the loss of heated or cooled air.


These environmentally responsible characteristics play a key role in helping Verizon Wireless

Communications Stores reduce waste and emissions and conserve resources. 


In addition, Verizon Wireless helps the environment and survivors of domestic violence through its HopeLine? program. Verizon Wireless collects no-longer-used wireless phones and equipment from any wireless service provider. Through HopeLine's recycling efforts, more than 200 tons of electronics waste and batteries have been kept out of landfills. Since October of 2001 when Verizon Wireless launched its national recycling program, 1.6 million phones have been properly disposed of in an environmentally sound way through the HopeLine program and more than 170,000 pounds of batteries were recycled through the HopeLine and Call2Recycle programs.

Verizon Wireless works every day to protect our environment and give our customers opportunities to do the same.
Environmental stewardship is engrained in Verizon's heritage, and the company prides itself on having a positive influence on the environment in which it operates.
