Renewable Energy

Renewable energy, also refered to as clean energy or green energy, is defined as ‘energy derived from resources that are regenerative, or for all practical purposes, cannot be depleted.’ The use of wind, water, and solar power are widespread in developed and developing countries. Mass production of electricity using renewable energy sources has become more commonplace, reflecting concern for climate change due to polution as well as the social and political risks of using fossil fuels and nuclear power.

At Bay State Envelope, we are committed to supporting renewable energy by offsetting our electricity consumption with wind power and other forms of renewable energy. This commitment reduces our environmental footprint, promotes cleaner air, and reduces our dependence on fossil fuels.

We also invest in carbon offsets, a program designed to balance out carbon dioxide emissions that are produced by businesses and individuals. Carbon Offsets are investments in projects that reduce or prevent a measured amount of emissions from entering the atmosphere. Helping to fund these projects allows us to take responsibility for carbon emissions produced by electricity consumption, air travel, driving, and other carbon-rich activities. Project that can offset emissions include reforestation and conservation, methane capture, and renewable energy.
