|61% of Businesses Report Having Carbon Reduction Goals|
|WGL Energy can help you achieve these goals with renewable energy and carbon offsets|
According to a recent Deloitte and Harrison Group study, where more than 1,500 U.S. residential consumers and 600 U.S. businesses were asked about their attitudes and actions on energy management, 61% of businesses surveyed reported having a goal to reduce their carbon footprint.1
If your business or government agency has a greenhouse
gas (GHG) emissions reduction target that must be met this fiscal year, WGL
Energy Services (WGL Energy) and its channel partners can help. You can, for example, purchase renewable
energy certificates (RECs) or carbon offsets from landfill gas capture and
destruction projects to help achieve your emissions reduction goals quickly.
With each purchase of wind or solar RECs from WGL Energy,
you help reduce the environmental impact of your electricity use, help create
green jobs, reduce GHG emissions and demonstrate your environmental commitment
to your customers.
While the purchase of RECs is a great way to reduce the
emissions caused by your electricity usage, it does not help with many other
common sources of GHGs. This is where carbon offsets can make a difference. A carbon
offset represents a reduction of GHGs made in one place to compensate for
emissions created in another place. Carbon offsets are extremely flexible, and
can be used to offset other activities such as business travel, conferences and
Act now to reduce your carbon footprint and become more sustainable. Click here to learn more.
