London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) February 09, 2009 -- The Carbon Advice Group, a multi-level affiliate carbon offset network, addresses the concerns of green office experts by empowering employees to take the lead on offsetting their office carbon footprint. Morgan Lovell design firm representative Lara Conaway says that employee involvement is essential to greening any office, and that employers are increasingly expecting employees to do something about energy efficiency and awareness.
âWe all know we need to do something [about global climate change], and we need to do it now. We believe we have solved the âWhatâs in it for meâ problem,â says Carbon Advice Group founder Matthew Sullivan.
The Carbon Advice Group allows employees to take an active role in the emerging green economy by setting up their own affiliate site to provide and sell carbon offsets. The site offers motivated employees a short process to set up their own micro-site to promote and sell carbon offsets as part of the Carbon Advice Groupâs network.
Allowing individual employees to be the âgo-toâ person in their company for carbon offsets, the Carbon Advice Group offers a compelling answer to the âWhat can I do?â response to global climate change issues. While many office consultants will discuss actions like installing efficient light bulbs and turning off computers at night, the Carbon Advice Group Affiliate program enables employees to lead their office in offsetting the energy that needs to be used for everyday business.
Carbon offsetting enables individuals and businesses to compensate for unavoidable emissions by purchasing equivalent greenhouse gas savings. With the Carbon Advice Group, these savings can come from wind power, biomass power, or a renewable energy charitable contribution.
Available carbon credits meet international standards and goals outlined in the Kyoto Agreement. Offices that purchase carbon offsets will receive certificates, car windscreen permit-style displays and luggage tags so they can clearly demonstrate their green credentials.
About Carbon Advice Group: The Carbon Advice Group is the worldâs first multi-level affiliate network for social entrepreneurs. It provides individuals, organizations and businesses the much-needed ability to accurately measure the size of their carbon footprint, deliver methods to reduce it as much as possible and then provide a simple, reliable, high quality mechanism to offset the remaining carbon footprint.
