EMC21 Spring Conference in Houston Hosted by Energy Marketing Conferences Attains Carbon Neutral Status
NEW YORK, Feb. 06, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Energy Marketing Conferences (EMC) announces its commitment to achieving a carbon-neutral status for the upcoming 21st Energy Marketing Conference (EMC21). The event is scheduled for March 18-19, 2024, at the Hilton Post Oak in Houston, Texas. EMC is set to offset a total of 73 metric tons (MT) of carbon emissions associated with the conference and its attendees, marking a significant step towards environmental responsibility.
EMC’s Carbon Neutrality Initiative:
To ensure the credibility of their carbon offsetting efforts, EMC utilizes a program where 100% of the carbon offsets are verified against universally recognized standards by independent third-party verifiers. Key standards include the Verified Carbon Standard, Gold Standard, American Carbon Registry, CSA Group, and the Climate Action Reserve. This rigorous approach guarantees the acquisition of the highest quality carbon offsets.
A carbon offset represents a reduction of one metric ton (2,205 lbs) of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) emissions. These offsets are generated through projects that specifically aim to reduce CO2 emissions, with each ton of emissions reduced translating into one carbon offset.
Jack Doueck, co-founder of Energy Marketing Conferences, expressed the organization’s dedication to combating climate change. “As a leader in the competitive energy industry, it’s our responsibility to contribute positively to this global challenge,” he stated. EMC’s approach includes purchasing carbon offsets for all air and car travel of attendees, in addition to hotel emissions, with Shell Energy as a sponsor of this initiative.
Shell Energy is the sponsor of EMC’s carbon-neutral initiative, to align its support with its overarching Climate Pledge and sustainability-centric mission, the sponsorship reflects their commitment to environmental stewardship.
