CleanChoice Energy Signs The Climate Pledge
Sep 19, 2022
At CleanChoice Energy, sustainability is at the heart of everything we do. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce that we have signed The Climate Pledge.
By signing The Climate Pledge, we have committed to:
Measure and report greenhouse gas emissions on a regular basis.
Implement decarbonization strategies in line with the Paris Agreement through real business changes and innovations, including efficiency improvements, renewable energy, materials reductions, and other carbon emission elimination strategies.
Neutralize any remaining emissions with additional, quantifiable, real, permanent, and socially beneficial offsets to achieve net-zero annual carbon emissions by 2040.
Co-founded by Amazon and Global Optimism in 2019, The Climate Pledge is a commitment by companies to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2040—a decade ahead of the Paris Agreement’s goal of 2050. More than 370 organizations including Microsoft, Salesforce, IBM, and Ørsted have now signed The Climate Pledge, sending an important signal that there will be rapid growth in demand for products and services that help reduce carbon emissions.
Sustainability is central to our mission—all of the electricity we offer is 100% pollution-free, wind and solar energy. Since our founding in 2012, CleanChoice customers have had the same environmental impact as planting more than 87 million trees, taking more than one million cars off the road, or preventing more than 5.8 billion pounds of coal from being burned.
“By joining The Climate Pledge, we are reaffirming the commitment we’ve made to help build a world without catastrophic climate change—one with pure, clean air and abundant renewable energy,” said CEO and Founder Tom Matzzie. “As the effects of climate change grow more significant each year, choosing sustainable, clean energy is more critical than ever.”
At CleanChoice, we’re on a mission to make clean air and renewable energy available to all. We use data-empowered technology to offer consumers easy, impactful climate solutions so they can cut emissions, support renewable energy, and live cleaner lives. We offer an alternative utility choice that provides 100% clean energy and uses no fossil fuels, Community Solar to match solar farms with those ready to use 100% solar energy, and Clean Energy Option to pair Renewable Energy Certificates from solar and wind farms to monthly energy use.
