EOS has had a significant impact on reducing CO2 carbon emissions through our solar panel, fuel-efficient ovens, and improved stoves. In 2016 alone, EOS has reduced 127.5 tons of CO2 equivalent emissions. Since EOS started installing these technologies in 2008, we have reduced over 554.7 tons of CO2 equivalent emissions.
Transportation comprises nearly 30% of all U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, and this number is increasing. Your purchase in carbon credits will support the investment of new technology installations which have a positive effect on the environment and will cut greenhouse gas pollution on your behalf for years to come. You can use this calculator to estimate the carbon emissions from your travel: Native Energy Travel Calculator.
Ex: Roundtrip travel MSP-MGA is 4,605 miles which equates to approximately 2.42 tons of CO2 emissions. The market rate of buying carbon credits to offset your footprint is $14/ton of CO2. Therefore 2.42 tons of CO2 x $14 = $33.88.
The purchase of this carbon credit offset will only be used once on projects that have already been installed and impact generated.
