The Carbonfund.org Foundation is proud to announce its first For Planet and People annual awards, adding to Carbonfund.org’s long history of facilitating our partners’ goals to mitigate their carbon footprint.
Since 2003, Carbonfund.org has worked with over 2,000 businesses and 750,000 individuals on climate solutions. Partners support renewable energy, energy efficiency or forestry projects to mitigate their climate impact. Carbonfund.org partners support renewable energy projects that push a clean energy market transformation, help the global economy through job creation, and support the agricultural industry in innovative and meaningful ways. Other partners support forest projects that protect biodiversity, conserve important land for recreation, and ensure both clean air and clean water for local communities. And partners support energy efficiency projects that replace outdated technology, reduce greenhouse gas emissions quickly, and help us learn to do more with less energy. The support Carbonfund.org partners give these projects comprises a critical environmental solution that benefits both planet and people. For the year 2011, the Board of Directors and staff of the Carbonfund.org Foundation have formally recognized a few of our partners, to thank them for taking a leadership role in combating climate change.
“Climate change affects us all, and we all must be a part of the solution," says Delphi President Michael Gerbis
Washington, DC. September 23, 2005 – The Delphi Group, Canada’s leading environmental and clean energy consulting company, and Carbonfund, a nonprofit organization dedicated to reducing the threat of climate change, announced today a partnership to reduce Delphi’s global climate impact to zero. Delphi will offset its carbon dioxide footprint in its entirety through its partnership with Carbonfund. Carbonfund will support carbon-reducing projects globally with the support of Delphi.
“We are thrilled to have the leadership and support of the Delphi Group and its employees on the issue of climate change and are glad Delphi chose to offset their carbon footprint with Carbonfund,” said Carbonfund President Lesley Marcus Carlson. “The Delphi Group, our first Canadian business partner, is leading the way among North American companies in the fight against climate change.”
“The Delphi Group is committed to being a good corporate citizen. Our partnership with Carbonfund made sense as the most cost effective and easiest way to reduce our impact on the global climate. As a global company we need to find global solutions that still make business sense,” said Delphi Group President Mike Gerbis.
Since 1988, the Delphi Group has been helping private companies, governments and agencies devise innovative solutions to more effectively manage the process of complex change towards a more competitive and sustainable future. Delphi operates on the premise that business should be a valued part of local and global communities, making both economic and social contributions to our world.
