Houston, TX (PRWEB) July 29, 2014
The strategic alliance between Green Power Offsets, a provider of single-source renewable energy credits (RECs), and impactChoice, a provider of turnkey sustainability solutions, will provide U.S. companies with tools and services needed to set and achieve carbon reduction goals.
“Our mission is to make it easy to choose renewable energy, promote sustainable behavior and encourage businesses to make informed choices about how to reduce their carbon footprint,” said Green Power Offsets’ Stephan Blasilli. “Experience has shown us that businesses with sustainability goals are looking for comprehensive solutions. They don’t stop at purchasing renewable energy; instead, they want guidance in establishing a truly comprehensive emissions reduction strategy. Together with impactChoice, we are now able to support our clients’ broader ambitions and enable them to be successful on a global scale.”
The partnership extends the traditional web-based, self-service model for purchasing RECs by providing services ranging from assistance with measuring environmental impact and performing emissions audits, to the implementation of comprehensive carbon mitigation solutions. It also allows companies who historically have only purchased Renewable Energy Credits to also mitigate their carbon emissions relating from non-energy activities, such as the burning of fossil fuels for transport, by purchasing Certified Carbon Offsets.
“It’s essential for an organization to measure its environmental impact and carbon footprint before embarking on an emissions reduction strategy. These measurements need to be in accordance with recognized standards, such as the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, or industry-specific standards, such as those set forth in the Hotel Carbon Management Initiative (HCMI) for the lodging and hospitality industry, in order to be meaningful,” said impactChoice USA CEO Allan Saunders. “We’re excited to partner with Green Power Offsets and build on our current expertise in measurement and carbon mitigation to offer U.S. businesses simple, low-cost, and comprehensive solutions to reduce environmental impact and power their business with American renewable energy.”
