EnviroMedia champions authentic green marketing and leads behavior-changing social marketing campaigns that improve the environment and public health. For three years, EnviroMedia has offset 100 percent of its estimated annual carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by buying Green e-Energy-certified RECs and Climate Action Reserve-certified carbon offsets. EnviroMedia’s RECs go directly to putting more wind power into the electrical grid. To date, EnviroMedia has offset 960 metric tons of CO2 by purchasing 560 metric tons of carbon offsets along with 671,000 kWh of renewable energy credits. Two-thirds of our carbon footprint is from the electricity we consume in our Austin and Portland offices, another quarter is from our employee commuting, and 10 percent is from air travel,” said Valerie Davis, co-founder and CEO of EnviroMedia. “We try to do all we can — our company vehicle is a hybrid, we offer telecommuting and rail passes to our employees, and we recently switched to a website host powered by renewable energy. But we still have a carbon footprint, and offsets are the next best thing to help minimize our business’s environmental impact.”
EnviroMedia’s commitment to offset 100 percent of its carbon emissions over the past three years has helped the company remain in sync with the needs of its environmental and public health clients.
