By Renewable Energy from Waste Staff.

Progressive Waste Solutions Ltd., Toronto, announced it has received its highest score (96 out of 100) in 10 years of participating in the CDP Report (formerly known as the Carbon Disclosure Project).

The CDP is recognized for its leadership in the quality of climate change data it has submitted to the global marketplace and is the world's only global environmental disclosure system which tracks how the world's largest listed companies are acting in response to a changing climate. The CDP's climate change program is designed to facilitate the management of greenhouse gas emissions and identify the risks and opportunities associated with climate change.

"We are very proud of our work in reducing our carbon footprint which underscores the progressive approach we take towards creating a more sustainable future for our customers, employees and the communities we serve," says Joseph Quarin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Progressive Waste Solutions. "This is an important measure to evaluate our progress towards lowering our greenhouse gas emissions which have been primarily focused on two areas - landfill gas management and the conversion of our collection fleet to natural gas."
