Motorola qualifies for WindMade label

Smartphone manufacturer Motorola Mobility has become the latest high-profile brand to obtain the WindMade certification label, confirming that its operations in the US source two-thirds of their electricity from wind farms.
The Google-owned company announced today that it has qualified for the international label, which requires organizations to source at least a quarter of their power from wind energy.
"Our reliance on wind power underscores our company-wide commitment to obtaining energy from clean and renewable sources and supports our energy and greenhouse gas reduction goals," said Bill Olson, sustainability director for Motorola Mobility.
The label will also help further cement parent company Google's reputation as one of the leading green energy investors in the US, which has seen the IT giant spend just shy of $1bn on renewable energy projects in recent years. [Business Green]
