Aquatic Informatics Offsets Carbon Footprint With Help From Offsetters and Go Neutral
Vancouver, Canada, February 4, 2009 – Aquatic Informatics Inc., a global leader in software solutions for the water and climate industry, today published its 2007 annual Greenhouse Gas (GHG) accounting report.
To measure its corporate footprint, Aquatic Informatics has engaged Go Neutral Now, a Vancouver based greenhouse gas accounting firm. Go Neutral Now measures the greenhouse gas footprint using the CSA 14064-1 Specification. Aquatic Informatics reports its performance in annual GHG Reports, as required under ISO 14064-1 and in the GHG Protocol. Greenhouse gases that Aquatic Informatics cannot avoid through its reduction strategies, will be offset by the purchase of quality, verified, carbon offsets to reduce its greenhouse gas impact to zero. AI has selected Offsetters, Canada’s premier provider of high quality carbon offsets, as its provider.
“Our initial plan was to produce an audit for 2007 first, develop a greenhouse gas reduction strategy for 2008 and start purchasing carbon offsets from 2008 onwards. But the enthusiastic support from our staff prompted us to accelerate the whole program and purchase offsets for the year 2007,” states Ed Quilty, president and CEO. Quilty continues, “Our purpose as a company is to improve global public and environmental health through better, faster, easier environmental management decisions, and as a clean technology company we are therefore dedicated to reducing our greenhouse gas production and buying carbon offsets. It’s the right thing to do.”
