Verizon Communications Inc. has emerged as a green-bond heavyweight in the U.S., using its vast network to raise another $1 billion to add more renewable energy to the electricity grid.

“Our strategy has been very clear, very straightforward,” said Verizon Treasurer Scott Krohn, in an interview with MarketWatch on Wednesday. “There’s nothing greener than pushing carbon off the grid by adding renewable capacity.”
In less than two years, Verizon has emerged as one of the biggest U.S. corporate buyers of renewable energy.
