EMISSION REDUCTION EFFORTS


The Clean Advantage® program automatically offsets greenhouse gas emissions (CO2e) by investing in and purchasing a wide range of reforestation, alternative energy, biomass, and other certified carbon offset projects both locally and globally. In addition to supporting certified carbon offset projects, we work with the Arbor Day Foundation to plant trees when and where possible beyond offsetting your emissions. Together, these investments, purchases, and partners allow us to automatically provide a sustainable solution for your company, employees, and community.

Sandhills Wildlife Management Area Tree Planting, Georgia, USA:

This project restores longleaf pine to 258 acres of Sandhills WMA Coleman tract, a recent acquisition in Taylor County, Georgia along Whitewater Creek. This tract was clearcut prior to purchase by the state. The sandy soils are highly erodible and are in desperate need of planting to stabilize the soils and stop erosion which is impacting Whitewater Creek, an important tributary to the Flint River. This tract was purchased to protect habitat for the gopher tortoise, a candidate for federal protection and a state threatened species.
