NEWARK, N.J., Nov. 12, 2002 — Public Service Enterprise Group Inc. (PSEG) has been named by Scientific American magazine as company leader on the environment and is included as one of the Scientific American 50 — the magazine’s first list recognizing contributions from the past year to science and technology providing a vision of a better future.
The Scientific American 50 was announced today and makes its debut in the magazine’s December issue that will reach newsstands Nov. 18. The complete list also may be accessed after Nov. 11 on the magazine’s website: http://www.sciam.com.
PSEG was recognized by Scientific American‘s Board of Editors for its “constructive, progressive attitude toward reducing emissions that pose hazards as pollutants or as greenhouse gases.”
John Rennie, the magazine’s editor-in-chief, said: Scientific American‘s editors wanted to recognize some of the most outstanding visionaries who are advancing technology and guaranteeing a brighter future for all of us. Scientists aren’t the only ones doing this. That’s why the Scientific American 50 includes business leaders, policy leaders, companies, and other organizations that influence how society puts innovations to good use.”
