2007 RESNET Building Performance Conference is Carbon Neutral

RESNET and NativeEnergy has joined forces to offset 100% of the carbon dioxide emissions from the facilities and transportation for hosting and participant travel with the 2007 RESNET Building Performance Conference. This makes this year's conference the first carbon-neutral building performance conference ever.

NativeEnergy, an American Indian majority-owned company is one of the leading national marketers of Green Tags. NativeEnergy, which works with organizations to help them compensate for their contributions to global climate change, calculated the "carbon footprint" for conducting the 2007 RESNET Conference including all attendee, staff, and presenter travel and the energy use of the conference facility. The company then offset the emissions from renewable clean energy Green Tags from wind generation in the Upper Midwest.

It is only right that RESNET should show the national leadership to counteract the greenhouse gas emissions we create in hosting the annual national conference. The investment in the Green Tags serves to support the development of clean renewable energy that will serve to reduce the nation's demand for fossil fuels. It is hoped that RESNET's leadership will spur other energy efficiency conferences to strive to make their events carbon-neutral. RESNET strives to set an example for our industry by this leadership.

NativeEnergy was the firm that worked with Al Gore to make the movie "An Inconvenient Truth" the first carbon-neutral documentary ever. Native Energy has worked with the following national firms and organizations to assist them in reducing their carbon footprint:

  • Albertsons
  • Ben & Jerry
  • Bill Clinton Global Initiative
  • Dave Matthews Band
  • Natural Resources Defense Council
  • Paramont Pictures
  • Rodale Press
  • Timberland
  • United Nations
  • World Wildlife Fund
