Washington, DC. November 11, 2005 – Lucid Design Group (LLC), a maker of data acquisition and display systems for the Green Building industry, agreed to offset their corporate travel carbon footprint with Carbonfund.org. On an annual basis, Lucid Design will calculate their travel footprint and offset the CO2 emissions with Carbonfund.org. Carbonfund.org in turn supports carbon-reducing projects globally.
“Lucid Design Group markets technology that makes the hidden emissions of carbon associated with operating buildings visible and easily understandable to the general public on kiosk displays and the web, said Carbonfund.org President Lesley Marcus Carlson. “and they have taken the logical step of environmental stewardship by offsetting the carbon emissions associated with their corporate travel. We hope they continue to develop their offset plan in full at a later date.”
According to John Petersen, director of operations at Lucid, “our business is committed to creating a product that informs building occupants and users of the continuous flows of energy and cycles of matter taking place around them. Our goal is to empower people to conserve resources, appreciate the value of renewable energy and local material cycling and to be better environmental stewards of our planet. We believe that it is crucial for us to manage our company in a way that is consistent with the goals of our products.”
