Achieve Your Sustainability Goals with RECS and Carbon Offsets

Our white paper explains how to reduce your carbon footprint

One of the fastest and easiest ways your business can achieve its sustainability goals is to purchase renewable energy credits (RECs) or carbon offsets. This can help to reduce the environmental impact of your electricity use, help create green jobs, counterbalance your natural gas usage or even reduce your carbon footprint.

WGL Energy Services, Inc. (WGL Energy) offers a variety of renewable energy options for businesses of any size through RECs sourced from either national or local wind farms. We can facilitate block purchases of wind power or match wind power to a percentage of your existing electricity supply. No new or special equipment is needed, so you can start achieving your sustainability goals today. All of our wind power products are Green-e® Energy certified by the Center for Resource Solutions, the number one third-party verifier of green power in the United States.
Another simple step you can take toward achieving your sustainability goals is to counterbalance the environmental impact of your natural gas usage with carbon offsets. Activities such as business travel, conferences and events can be made greener through the purchase of Carbon Offsets from WGL Energy. Our carbon offsets come from local emissions reduction projects, such as landfill gas capture and destruction, and are Green-e® Climate certified.
With electricity from renewable sources like wind and carbon offsets matched to natural gas usage, you can bring your energy carbon footprint down to zero. It’s a quick and easy approach toward achieving your sustainability goals, while you consider longer-term solutions like energy efficiency upgrades and solar installations.
