2014 Summit Goes Carbon Neutral

Washington Gas Energy Services donated 55 CleanSteps Carbon Offsets to balance out the greenhouse gas emissions from air travel, vehicle travel, hotel stays and energy use for the 2014 Building Energy Summit. Offsetting 55 tons of carbon dioxide emissions, or 122,242 pounds, is equivalent to:
  • Taking 12 cars off the road for one year, or
  • Avoiding the consumption of over 6,200 gallons of gasoline, or
  • Planting over 1,400 tree seedlings that grow for 10 years.
WGES CleanSteps Carbon Offsets are sourced from independently verified carbon-reduction projects in the transportation and waste management sectors within the Chesapeake Bay region. WGES CleanSteps Carbon Offsets have both present and future environmental benefits that support cleaner air and water. Through Washington Gas Energy Services' partnership with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF), a portion of the proceeds from all offsets sold support the Carbon Reduction Fund, which is managed by CBF and used to develop future clean air and water projects throughout the Chesapeake Bay region. To date more than $500,000 has been contributed to this Fund, which has been used to plant over 10,000 trees in the Bay watershed.
