Firms collaborate to promote mutual sustainability interests

“We know we’re working together towards a common good and so ongoing collaboration with Renewable Choice is an easy decision.”
- Jeannie Renne-Malone, Director of Greenhouse Gas Management Services for HDR

Renewable Choice Energy (, a leading North American provider of renewable energy, carbon offsets, and sustainability consulting services announced today that it has continued a strategic partnership with HDR, a global firm providing architecture, engineering, consulting, construction, and related services. The partnership, initially formed in 2010, continues to advance the environmental initiatives and business goals of both firms.

HDR first selected Renewable Choice to purchase renewable energy credits (RECs) from in 2010. Since that time, the firm has also worked with Renewable Choice to:

  •     Complete its corporate greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory using Mosaic™, Renewable Choice’s greenhouse gas measurement platform;
  •     Offer Mosaic to HDR clients through the Mosaic Alliance Partnership, providing clients value by saving energy, reducing emissions, and controlling operational costs and;
  •     Recommend Renewable Choice for REC purchases to clients seeking LEED® certification.

This year, HDR, as the conference sustainability advisor, selected Renewable Choice to be the carbon offset provider for the New Partners for Smart Growth conference held earlier in February. HDR has also started calculating its 2012 corporate GHG inventory using Mosaic.

Future plans for the Renewable Choice/HDR partnership include:

  •     Continuing to offer Mosaic to HDR clients;
  •     Public presentation of their collaborative work together; and
  •     A measurement and disclosure alliance using Mosaic.

“Renewable Choice has continued to deliver valuable environmental products and services,” said Jeannie Renne-Malone, Director of Greenhouse Gas Management Services for HDR. “Not only are their solutions affordable and effective, but they’ve provided consistent communication and thought leadership in the areas of their expertise. We know we’re working together towards a common good and so ongoing collaboration with Renewable Choice is an easy decision.”

Renewable Choice has realized the benefits of working in partnership with HDR as well. "Our partnership with HDR has presented us with a number of important business development and communications opportunities,” said Amy Haddon, Vice President of Communications for Renewable Choice. “Working collaboratively with the HDR team has been both valuable and rewarding and we look forward to continuing to reap the fruits of our mutual labors.”
