Washington Gas Energy Services To Offset Carbon Impact Of Entire RETECH Conference

Stocks in this article: WGL

Washington Gas Energy Services, Inc. (WGES), one of the largest competitive energy providers in the mid-Atlantic region, today announced that the company will sponsor the 5 th Annual Renewable Energy Technology Conference & Exhibition ( RETECH Conference), by offsetting the carbon impact of the entire event, including attendee travel. The RETECH Conference draws together members of the energy community including business leaders, elected officials, investors and educators to discuss trends as well as technology and innovation in the renewable energy industry. The conference will be held at the Marriott Wardman Park in Washington, D.C., September 9-11.

“All of our attendees, exhibitors and sponsors recognize the importance of carbon neutrality, especially for a large event like the RETECH Conference, which draws attendees from across the globe,” said Jenn Heinold, Vice President of RETECH. “We are delighted that Washington Gas Energy Services chose to sponsor the RETECH Conference through WGES CleanSteps® Carbon Offsets, ensuring that the event itself leverages the best practices we will discuss throughout the week.”

Washington Gas Energy Services’ CleanSteps® Carbon Offsets product will be used to counterbalance the carbon impact from energy use from attendee travel to Washington D.C., hotel rooms and the conference itself. This effort will offset the emissions of more than 426,000 pounds of carbon dioxide, which is equivalent to avoiding the consumption of over 21,000 gallons of gasoline.

“Our goal at Washington Gas Energy Services is to help residents, businesses and other organizations reduce the environmental impact of their natural gas use, in a simple manner, through WGES CleanSteps® Carbon Offsets,” said Harry Warren, president of Washington Gas Energy Services. “We are pleased to be working with the RETECH Conference to show that even non-traditional entities such as events and exhibitions can take proactive steps to neutralize their carbon footprints.”
