SWCA Supports Green Energy: Renewable Energy Credits Offset 100% of Purchased Electricity Use

12/11/2012

PHOENIX—SWCA Environmental Consultants is participating in a Renewable Energy Credit Program through Renewable Choice Energy (http://www.renewablechoice.com/) to offset 100 percent of company-wide annual purchased electricity usage. This program encourages further development of the renewable energy market and renewable energy projects while helping promote clean air and fight global climate change.

SWCA’s renewable energy credits cover more than 800 metric tons of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, an impact similar to not burning 85,000 gallons of gasoline or planting 20,000 tree seedlings and growing them for the next ten years.

These credits effectively lower SWCA’s 2011 total GHG emissions by about 25 percent. Though the efforts of employees and renewable energy programs, SWCA has achieved company-wide GHG reductions for the third year in a row, moving closer to carbon neutrality, one of the company’s sustainability goals. 

“As part of our company culture, we at SWCA firmly believe in the importance of reducing our environmental footprint,” said President and CEO John Thomas. “We are committed to improving our business practices in a way that contributes to a clean and sustainable environment. By purchasing these credits, the electricity we use is added to the power grid from renewable energy facilities.”
