TerraPass on EDF’s CarbonOffsetList.org
We’re pleased to announce that TerraPass is featured on CarbonOffsetList.org, a new initiative from Environmental Defense Fund to highlight quality in the voluntary carbon offset market.
EDF has been a longtime champion of using innovative market-based mechanisms to bring about greenhouse gas reductions in a cost-effective manner. And TerraPass has long shared EDF’s philosophy toward identifying great projects: an emphasis on sound methodologies, permanent emissions reductions, and third-party verification.
We submitted one of our most recent projects, the Greater Lebanon Refuse Authority (GLRA) landfill gas-to-energy project for inclusion in the list. GLRA is an outstanding group, recognized by the EPA as a Community Partner of the Year through the Landfill Methane Outreach Program.
Like EDF, we recognize that while offsets are an important part of the climate change puzzle, a complete solution will require action on many fronts. Via EDF, here are the “four C’s” of fighting climate change:
1. Conserve energy
2. Convert to lower carbon energy
3. Choose quality offsets
4. Call for (political) action
Four simple steps for a sustainable future.
Take the first step.
Start small. Be conscious of the impact your actions have on the environment and figure out what you can do to lessen the blow. Calculate, conserve, and offset.
For businesses, our Corporate Sustainability Plans can help you with your emission reduction goals.
