Tackling Carbon Emissions to Reduce the Game's Environmental Impact
PHOENIX, Jan. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Top-ranked Clemson and No.2 Alabama will be facing off amidst more than orange and crimson at the College Football Playoff National Championship. TerraPass, a member of the Just Energy Group of companies will be greening up the game with carbon offsets and renewable energy credits (RECs); mitigating the game's environmental impact. Playoff Fan Central, the CFP transportation fleet and competing teams' travel and accommodations will be "carbon neutral" thanks to offsets provided by Terrapass.
The carbon offsets and RECs from TerraPass provide financial support to renewable energy and emission reduction projects like wind, cow power and natural gas capture.
"We are pleased to, once again, partner with CFP to continue to help balance the emissions associated with the championship game," says Jeff Wolfe, President, TerraPass. "Colleges and universities are leading the way across America to fight climate change by reducing their impact on the environment. Funding emission reduction projects and renewable energy by utilizing TerraPass, is a comprehensive way to lower the carbon footprint of a large event such as the College Football Playoff National Championship. We look forward to continuing the tradition of fighting global climate change with CFP."
The College Football Playoff, in partnership with TerraPass, will offset enough carbon to fly the length of 130,000 football fields and light up 30,000 propane tanks for tailgating.
"Sustainability is one of the core principles of operations at the College Football Playoff National Championship," says Jack Groh, who leads sustainability efforts for the event. "We are reducing waste, offsetting energy emissions and creating a 'green' legacy through urban forestry projects. TerraPass is a key partner in those efforts."
