The Green and the Red, White and Blue
(Alpharetta, GA – January 23rd, 2009) Just days ago in Washington D.C., before two million or more on-lookers and countless others joining via satellite, a new administration was sworn in to office. The new US President and his team have committed to tackling the many tough issues that face our nation today.
The health of our environment is one such issue that is on the minds of many. Any new legislation that deals with our land, air, and/or water resources will likely have the attention of the citizenry. Environmental policies will certainly be of interest to the Venza Group, a “green” company that insisted on establishing a policy of offsetting its CO2 footprint within months of opening its new office.
One of the Southeast’s premier training services provider, the Venza Group worked with Green Mountain Energy Company to identify the CO2 emissions footprint created by its whole operation. They measured the emissions impact of annual electricity usage, employee commuting and corporate air travel. They discovered that they were responsible for the emissions of approximately 47 metric tons of CO2. Put into perspective, that is about the same environmental impact as driving a car almost 115,000 miles!
The Venza Group then offset 100% of those estimated emissions through a combination of Renewable Energy Credits and Forest Sequestration offsets. Offsetting their emission was equivalent to taking about 9 cars off the road annually or planting more than 6,150 trees. Furthermore, the offset has the same environmental impact as recycling over 253,000 aluminum cans and recycling over 41,100 pounds of newspaper.
Through this process, the Venza Group is taking responsibility for its share of CO2 emissions. Standing for achieving results, they are committed to being a part of the solution to global warming. Addressing their environmental impact is just one way the Venza Group is making a difference. Like so many others in this year of transition, they believe being green is an excellent way to show their commitment to the Red, White, and Blue.
