Responsible Energy Use
We make every effort to reduce energy consumption. Offsetting our energy use is the second important step in reducing the adverse effects of our actions on the environment.
Improving Energy Efficiency
We are a member of Energy Star® for Small Business, a voluntary EPA program that has helped us to implement energy saving practices and lower our energy demand. We strongly recommend this program to businesses large and small who are looking to reduce costs and be more responsible about energy use.
Choosing Green Power
Our local energy provider cannot supply green power. Since 2003, we've purchased carbon offsets to offset 100% of our C02 emissions from office heating and electricity, as well as business travel, with renewable energy. Our 2008 offsets were donated to Clean Air-Cool Planet for permanent retirement. To learn more about how you can do your part to stop global warming, please visit our friends at Native Energy.
Because we offset 100% of our annual fossil-fuel electricity, we have been honored as a member of EPA’s Green Power Partnership every year since 2003.
