Emission Reductions

This year's GovEnergy event reached the Cleaner and Greener Platinum certification level by offsetting all of its emissions through the purchase of RECs from 3Degrees.  A total of 4,322 MWh of RECs were purchased to offset the event itself, in addition to three planning meetings prior to the actual event.  As a result, 100% of the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions resulting from the four events was offset, and health-related emissions, including SO2, NOx, and mercury, were offset several times over.  The RECs purcahsed for the event resulted from wind power generated in the US in 2010.
