If you were to pick your favorite way to reduce carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, what would it be?
Would it be helping an endangered species survive in Madagascar’s rainforest? Or perhaps funding the creation of new and safer cookstoves that support small business development? Or a biogas project in a rural community that helps convert solids to power and methane to low-carbon energy?
Through fleet automation, Republic Services’ One Fleet standardized vehicle maintenance program, conversion to compressed natural gas (CNG) trucks, and the use of renewable natural gas derived from organic waste, Republic has lowered our fossil fuel usage, which also reduces costs.
In fact, over the past four years, even as our business has grown by 11.5%, we’ve been able to hold our fleet fossil fuel usage to just 2.5%, which also results in reduced carbon impact.
Trees are good for a number of reasons. We know they are good for the environment by reducing air pollution and help us breathe by providing oxygen, but did you also know they help reduce urban heat, water, noise and light pollution? They also serve as a home to wildlife, reduce commuter stress, increase property values and enhance a city’s beauty.
Trees provide so much value, especially to urban areas, so Green Mountain Energy is partnering with Trees For Houston to give back 500 trees to the Houston area.
