El Cerrito, California (April 19, 2012) Vigilent, the leader in intelligent energy management systems, announced today that it was selected by Verizon as the winner of its 2011 Supplier Recognition Award in the Green and Sustainability category. Each year, Verizon recognizes its top two green suppliers at a special Earth Day celebration. This year’s award will be presented on April 19 at a ceremony in Basking Ridge, New Jersey.
“The Vigilent intelligent energy management systems have made a remarkable impact on Verizon’s conservation efforts,” said Verizon Chief Sustainability Officer, Jim Gowen. “In 2011 alone we cut 55M kWh of electricity in our data centers and central offices and that translates to a cool 38 thousand metric tons of carbon dioxide – great for business and the environment.”
“We are honored to be recognized by Verizon for our part in supporting their commitment to sustainability,” said Mark Housley, Vigilent CEO.
“Improving the efficiency of energy use can have a remarkable impact, as Verizon has shown. We appreciate the trust they have placed in us to gain the maximum possible energy efficiency throughout their data center and central office facilities.”

Criteria for winning include: quality of service, year-over-year growth, a commitment to supplier diversity, meeting and exceeding performance metrics, providing cost management solutions, and excellent customer service.
