The Heritage Store
For more than 10 years, corporations and businesses have used NativeEnergy carbon offsets to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and meet their sustainability goals. Many have achieved industry leadership in corporate social responsibility, winning customers and shareholders with their forward-thinking initiatives.
Businesses use carbon offsets in a variety of strategic ways: to reduce office carbon emissions, to make a specific product carbon neutral, to engage employees, and beyond.
Our clients are on a journey toward true sustainability: they are reducing their greenhouse gas emissions, rethinking waste, and envisioning a world where prosperity means healthy profits coupled with social and environmental thoughtfulness.
Multi-Year Carbon Offset Purchase
For nearly a decade, NativeEnergy has helped Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR) achieve its greenhouse gas reduction goals. In 2009, GMCR decided to purchase a multi-year stream of carbon offsets from the Greensburg Wind Farm. By doing so, the company locked in a set carbon price over several years and played a key role in helping a local community.
Over the past few years, we have watched companies focus more and more on reducing carbon emissions in their supply chains. We have attended the same conferences that you attend, we have read the same reports and white papers, we have analyzed the same types of CO2 emissions data, and we agree: a large percentage of your corporate emissions—and therefore large opportunities to reduce your footprint—reside in your supply chain.
