By offsetting our carbon emissions, we hope to demonstrate our commitment to the environment and to responsible business practices.
East Brunswick, NJ (Vocus) January 24, 2008
Homelement.com announced that it has taken an environmental leadership position by choosing to offset its carbon emissions with Carbonfund.org, the country's leading carbon offset organization.
Homelement.com has chosen to offset the carbon emissions it generates by supporting Carbonfund.org reforestation projects. Reforestation counteracts carbon emissions by introducing new trees into deforested ecosystems so they can capture and store excess carbon dioxide.
This commitment identifies Homelement.com as an environmental leader in the web-based furniture retail community and demonstrates proactive steps being taken in the fight against global climate change.
Homelement.com is fully aware of current concerns regarding global warming. Considering the implications of climate change, carbon offsets through Carbonfund.org are a natural extension of work Homelement.com does on behalf of its customers.
Homelement.com places a high value on the virtues of corporate responsibility and believes that companies are indebted to the markets they serve and the environmental resources they rely on. By offsetting carbon emissions generated by daily operation, Homelement.com hopes to serve as a model of healthy business protocol.
"We believe that a company should take full responsibility for any potentially harmful byproducts of their business, carbon or otherwise," said Joice Tan, Operations Manager for Homelement. "By offsetting our carbon emissions, we hope to demonstrate our commitment to the environment and to responsible business practices."
"Homelement is known for its beautiful, stylish home furnishings, but they also understand that there's nothing more stylish than promoting the transition to a clean-energy economy," said Eric Carlson, Executive Director of Carbonfund.org. "We are thrilled to have them onboard as a business partner."
