The RESNET Building Performance Conference is the premier national
forum on home energy ratings, residential energy efficiency financing,
and building performance business development. The 2007 RESNET Building
Performance Conference will take place on February 19 - 21, 2007 in
San Diego, CA. Make plans now for three days of networking,
learning, sharing and enjoying exciting San Diego.
2007 RESNET Building Performance Conference is Carbon Neutral
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.
