Edit Note

I relocated the list of awards from the article page which was puffery. However, I have included the weblink to the same information on the Entergy website in the contact details section.--Bob Burton 06:09, 23 July 2008 (EDT)

Edit note 2

I removed the following puff par for a couple of reasons. 1) it was in a section on nukes but the added material was unrelated to this. 2) the "second cleanest utility" is one of those soft comparisons 3) inclusion in the DJSI is also rather meaningless - after all, they include tobacco companies too.--Bob Burton 06:16, 23 July 2008 (EDT)

Entergy is the second cleanest utility generator among the top 10 generators and was the first U.S. utility to voluntarily stabilize greenhouse gas emissions. Entergy is the only U.S. utility to make the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) six years in a row. The DJSI is a listing of the companies whose overall environmental, social and economic sustainability performance scores were in the top 10 percent for their sector.
