Happy New Year!
As you think about New Year's resolutions, consider making 2013 a carbon conscious year. Offsets help counterbalance greenhouse gas emissions, and when you retire offsets through the Appalachian Carbon Partnership (ACP), you are backing the long-term sustainable management of Appalachian forestland. Each contribution supports family forest owners in Central Appalachia who are committed to sustainable forest management. Your contribution also benefits the region at multiple levels, including a better wildlife habitat, preserved bio-diversity, enhanced water quality, long-term forest health, climate change mitigation, and investment in rural communities.
It’s easy to get started. We have a simple calculator that helps you estimate basic emissions, or you can enter your own custom amount. When your contribution is received, we will issue a certificate of offset retirement that you can print or email. Click here for the calculator and please spread the word with your family and friends.
ACP is a program of the Mountain Association for Community Economic Development (MACED), a nonprofit working toward a sustainable economy in eastern Kentucky and Central Appalachia. MACED is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization, and your contribution is tax-deductible to the extent provided by the law.
