VSAG Partner CarbonFund.org Featured in WSJ

carbonfundKudos to CarbonFund for the recent article in the Wall Street Journal highlighting the trend of making a positive move to reduce carbon footprints – the yearly amount of carbon dioxide we emit into the environment – for big corporate leaders like Amtrak, Jet Blue, Hyundai and Dell.  VSAG is also a CarbonFund.org subscriber,  reducing the carbon footprints of restaurant clients like Founding Farmers and Farmers & Fishers , with the purchase of carbon offsets through CarbonFund.org .   In 2009 alone, VSAG purchased credits to offset more than 72 tons of carbon dioxide to reduce the environmental impact of the restaurants.  It’s just a small part of the VSAG Corporate Social Responsibility that is imparted to all clients.

According to the article, these carbon-offset retailers calculate fossil-fuel consumption and neutralize it with earth-friendly initiatives. There are varying ways these credits are put to use, but examples include investing in reforestation, renewable energy and methane-gas capture-and-destruction efforts.  The article is a must read for businesses that want to be more environmentally responsible – from a 2-person operation to a 2,000 person company – everyone can do their part.   Read the full article.
