It’s Not Always Easy Being Green, But With WGL Energy It Is!

MACo would like to thank WGL Energy for “Greening” the 2017 Winter Conference! WGL will donate carbon offsets to counterbalance the greenhouse gas emissions resulting from #MACoCon including energy use, hotel stays, food, and other waste.


WGL Energy explaining their “Greening” process.

Carbon Offsets from WGL Energy are Green-e® Climate certified and derived from third-party verified carbon reduction projects in the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Their supply of carbon offsets comes from  carbon-reduction projects in the waste management sector, such as the capture and destruction of methane from regional landfills.

WGL Energy is also investing a portion of the proceeds from carbon offset purchases into the Carbon Reduction Fund, which is managed by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. The funds are used to develop new greenhouse gas-reducing projects, and improve air and water quality in the Chesapeake Bay region.

Their partnership with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation has supported numerous projects including the reduction of fertilizer use through improved farming techniques, community restoration projects and the planting of tens of thousands of trees across the watershed.

WGL Energy is your source for clean, sustainable solutions.

For more on how you can reduce your organization’s carbon footprint, visit the carbon offsets page for government, commercial and industrial customers on their website or stop by WGL Energy’s tabletop booth at MACo’s Winter Conference on Wednesday and Thursday, December 6 and 7.

Thank you, WGL Energy, a MACo Silver Corporate Partner, for your continued support of the Maryland Association of Counties!
