“The best carbon
offset companies, like NativeEnergy, are investing in new renewable energy projects. We’re focused on doing our part to reduce our actual carbon emissions but we’re also investing
in changing the energy infrastructure through offsets so that we can
help add more renewable energy to the grid.”

a difference by enabling new project construction.”
