Spotlight on Carbon Offsets
Washington Gas Energy Services to Offset Carbon Impact of Upcoming RETECH Conference

RETECH 2013This year’s RETECH Conference, September 9-11, will be entirely carbon neutral thanks to the sponsorship of Washington Gas Energy Services. Our WGES CleanSteps® Carbon Offsets product will be used to counterbalance the carbon impact from attendee travel to Washington, D.C., as well as energy use from hotel rooms and the conference itself. This effort will offset the emissions of more than 426,000 pounds of carbon dioxide, which is equivalent to avoiding the consumption of over 21,000 gallons of gasoline.

WGES CleanSteps® Carbon Offsets support independently verified carbon-reduction projects in the areas of transportation and landfill gas. Through our partnership with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, a portion of all offset purchases supports the Carbon Reduction Fund, which is used to develop clean air and water projects throughout the Chesapeake Bay region.

All Washington Gas Energy Services standard natural gas includes a baseline 5 percent match of carbon offsets to natural gas use for residential customers and a 3.5 percent match for small commercial customers. Both residential and small commercial customers can choose natural gas matched with 100 percent WGES CleanSteps® Carbon Offsets. Large commercial customers have the option to customize the percent of their natural gas that is matched with carbon offsets.

To learn more about our Large Commercial Service for WGES CleanSteps® Carbon Offsets, or to make your event carbon neutral, visit our website, or consult with your Account Manager.
