Offset Sources donated through Cleaner and Greener to offset Conference emissions:

Enterprise Community Partners — Enterprise Community Partners intends to donate emission reductions to offset 100% of the carbon dioxide emissions associated with this event. This donation is anticipated to also offset over 100% of the sulfur dioxide and mercury emissions, 66% of the nitrogen oxides, and 25% of particulates.  Enterprise Community Partners is a charitable non-profit organization that, through its Green Communities Program, provides funding and expertise to builders for the development and rehabilitation of green, low-income housing.  Enterprise’s donated emission reductions will come from energy efficiency measures in these housing developments.

Donations:

Donations are being gathered to support emission offsets from conference attendees, exhibitors, and sponsors. For this event, donations of $20 per attendee (based on 25,000 attendees) will let us offset the emissions covered by the energy use associated with this event by 200% (Based on an estimated cost to buy green power certificates of 1.0 cents per kWh).

In-kind donations are being used to help offset the emissions generated by the 2008 Greenbuild International Conference & Expo; these offsets will be retired by Leonardo Academy.

Attendees are invited to make monetary donations to help offset the emissions caused by your participation in this event. A $20 donation purchases enough emission reductions to offset the average emissions caused by one attendee's travel, lodging, meals, and event activities by 200%. The monetary donations received are used by Leonardo Academy to purchase and retire renewable energy certificates (RECs) to help offset the emissions of the 2008 Greenbuild International Conference & Expo. All renewable energy certificates purchased are certified renewable energy certificates from wind energy.
