NYSE Euronext (NYX) is a leading global operator of financial markets and provider of innovative trading technologies. It is NYSE Euronext's intention to purchase Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) and carbon offsets that equal its annual U.S carbon footprint. NYSE Euronext is the only global exchange operator and technology provider to purchase RECs and carbon offsets that together neutralize the environmental impact of the company's U.S operations. As part of its commitment to purchasing green power, NYSE Euronext will use its platform to assist key stakeholders in environmental sustainability and to highlight best practices by leading companies. "Balancing out our environmental impact is now a core component of our commitment to being a responsible corporate citizen of our global community," said Chief Executive Officer Duncan L. Niederauer. "By matching our energy use with these certificates and offsets, we are both mitigating our carbon footprint and helping to accelerate the low-carbon, renewable-energy economy. We are proud to be taking this leadership position among global exchange groups and we will continue to seek out responsible and effective ways to contribute to a sustainable environment."
