Nordic Energy Services, LLC announced today the launch of NordiGreen, a new program dedicated to offset the carbon impact for all of Nordic’s natural gas customers.
"Unlike most offset programs which present offsets as an option to their customers, NordiGreen will be universally available and applied to current and future natural gas customers at no change in cost or level of service," the company said
"This means not only will the carbon emissions of Nordic Energy’s customers’ natural gas use be fully offset (100%) effectively reducing clients’ carbon footprint, but the offsets will also directly support a suite of projects powering various co-benefits such as cleaner water, cleaner air, enhanced biodiversity, and opportunities for sustainable economic development," the company said
"Nordic Energy, LLC is currently evaluating a series of projects that include sustainable land use management, afforestation, and renewable energy development. The voluntary carbon offset certificates support projects within the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change protocol (UNFCCC) and are independently verified and certified. Certificates are tracked and retired in a globally recognized registry (e.g. Verified Carbon Standard)," the company said
Nordic Energy supplies natural gas and/or electricity with related services to commercial customers, municipalities, and residential customers behind 40 utilities throughout Illinois, Pennsylvania, Michigan, New Jersey, Maryland, Indiana, Ohio, Massachusetts, and New York.
