The Climate Registry
Every year since 2006, we have measured and used a third party to verify our GHG footprint through The Climate Registry (TCR). The Climate Registry is a nationally recognized, nonprofit organization that sets consistent and transparent standards to calculate, verify and publicly report GHG emissions into a registry. We are well on our way to accomplishing the 2020 goals set by the Global Warming Solutions Act (AB 32)!
Our Climate Action Plan
Our Plan includes two main goals:
- Reduce direct and indirect Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions ahead of statewide GHG emissions reduction goals
- Increase recycling and composting to avoid GHG emissions by over 20 times what our operations generate
When these goals were set, our vehicle fleet provided the greatest opportunity for emission reductions and was chosen as our first target. We now proudly operate an entirely green fleet powered predominantly by renewable compressed natural gas (rCNG) produced on site in our Anaerobic Digestion Facility . We also operate multiple hybrid vehicles as well as some powered by B20 bio diesel. As a part of our commitment to reduce GHG emissions, we prefer to use biodiesel from low carbon sources, such as recycled cooking oil.
