"At terrapass, our mission is to reduce the greatest amount of carbon emissions we possibly can," says Karra Marino, Vice President, terrapass. "I am passionate about connecting our growing scope of environmental options with more eco-conscious partners. Tackling climate change requires both immediate action as well as long term sustainability solutions, which involves working together as individuals and businesses. As consumers, we cannot on our own completely avoid carbon emissions associated with our day to day activities. Terrapass exists to empower everyone with tools to help them understand their carbon footprint and an opportunity to fund carbon offset and renewable energy projects that are not only meaningful to them, but that contribute to sustainability and restore the balance as we move toward a lower-carbon economy."
Helping companies reduce their climate impact
With a growing list of collaborations, terrapass is equally excited to announce when our business partners make big contributions to carbon reduction. Recently, Talking Rain, a leading beverage company, chose to partner with terrapass to address its carbon footprint from natural gas use and fleet emissions in the United States. This year's partnership will address 100% of their Scope 1 and 2 emissions. Talking Rain will fund over 28,000 metric tons of carbon offsets in 2021 through investments in certified emission reduction projects across the United States, equivalent to taking over 6,000 cars off the road for an entire year.
