Terra Global Capital Earned Carbon Credits for their Project
Multimedia with summary
SCS Global Services (SCS) would like to congratulate Terra Global Capital on managing the first Greenhouse Gas project to earn carbon credits from rice cultivation. As the third-party verification body, SCS verified this first-of-its-kind offset project under the American Carbon Registry, successfully proving the sustainable rice growing methodology demonstrated greenhouse gas reductions. This project was a prime illustration of innovation and collaboration with the rice growers, the project manager, the verification body, the scheme owner, and partners.
Public water utilities in the U.S. face a crisis that could mean the end of clean, cheap water. As climate variability and extreme weather events affect the quantity and quality of fresh water, the industry is being challenged to deliver services and protect vulnerable infrastructure without driving up prices. New technologies and practices could save costs, preserve infrastructure, and conserve water over the long term.
NRG always looks for ways to systematically improve environmental and community outcomes from our facilities’ operations while ensuring efficiency, reliability and stakeholder value. Focus areas within Sustainable Operations include safety, GHG emissions and carbon utilization, water, industrial waste and biodiversity.
We remain committed to mitigating impacts of climate change by managing our emission intensity through improvements in energy efficiency and portfolio adjustment in the short-term; and transitions to low-carbon energy sources and renewables in the longer term. Toward this effort, we developed an internal pricing mechanism in 2016 to better understand the impact of adopting low-carbon energy alternatives for our operations.
The advantages of deploying microgrids are abundant, with sustainability and reliability leading the charge. These are easy to communicate on a community level, but have more specific benefits when installed at military applications. Following on from U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) initiatives aimed at deploying more renewable energy, the cost-savings, distributed energy resource (DER) applications and energy security benefits be gained cannot be overlooked.
Based in India, Lithium Urban Technologies is pioneering a shift toward more sustainable urban mobility, operating the most productive electric vehicle fleet in the world. This company is India’s first 100 percent, zero emission transport service, providing a large fleet of electric vehicles (EVs) along with highly trained and certified drivers.
