Con Edison has a longstanding goal of achieving environmental excellence. The company supports organizations that share the company's concern for preserving and protecting the environment through conservation and beautification projects as well as through educational and career-development programs. We recognize the importance of work keyed to conservancy, recycling, reclamation efforts, and mitigation of pollution.

We have heard a lot about global warming and the negative impact that it is having on our environment.   Reflecting on how you may be contributing to this problem on a daily basis, write an essay of 300 words or less, telling us your views on global warming, and how you can personally make changes in your habits that will positively impact our environment and diminish the effects of global warming.
