Date:2/23/2009

Energy purchase supports new development of clean renewable resources

FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J., Feb. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- BD, a leading global medical technology company, announced today that for the first time it appears on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) Fortune 500 list of green power purchasers. BD is purchasing green power in support of EPA's Fortune 500 Green Power Challenge. EPA is challenging Fortune 500 corporations to collectively exceed 10 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) green power purchasing by year end 2009. BD's purchase ranks 23rd among participating corporations.

Placement on the EPA's list is a result of BD's facility in Sandy, Utah purchasing 37 million kilowatt-hours of green power, which is enough to meet 100 percent of its purchased electricity use. The Sandy facility is buying a utility green power product from Rocky Mountain Power through its Blue Sky renewable energy program. This purchase demonstrates a proactive choice and a leading commitment to supporting cleaner renewable energy alternatives.

The EPA has updated each of its National Top Partner lists, highlighting some of America's largest green power purchasers. Each list highlights EPA Green Power Partners that have completed the largest annual voluntary purchases through January 6, 2009. EPA updates its Top Partner Lists quarterly at http://www.epa.gov/greenpower/toplists/.

"BD is committed to responsible environmental stewardship worldwide, and we are working more diligently than ever to expand on and develop stronger environmental performance programs," said Edward J. Ludwig, BD Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Our Utah energy purchase is an example of our commitment to the long-term health of the environment and the communities in which we operate."

"It is an honor to be recognized by the U.S. Environme
