Ecotone - Green Building Publisher Goes Carbon Neutral


Ecotone have graduated from publishing school with a double first. Not only are they the first publishing house in North America to devote themselves to green architecture and sustainable design but last week they announced that they are the first publishing company to go Carbon Neutral. "Every company can make a difference by combating climate change — our green building books are dedicated to providing environmentally responsible solutions. Having already taken many of the requisite steps in greening our business it was time to formalize our commitment by going carbon neutral" said Jason F. McLennan, founder and president of Ecotone. Ecotone is proud to have purchased 40 tons of carbon offsets from The Climate Trust and an additional 10 tons from the Solar Electric Light Fund to counterbalance carbon dioxide emissions produced in 2005 through the publisher's use of paper, travel, fossil fuels, electricity and production of waste. Ecotone plans to continue its carbon neutral program from 2005 forward, investing in carbon credit and allowance projects that have the highest environmental credibility and value. :: Ecotone via: o2 group
