A carbon footprint is the effect your activities have on greenhouse gas accumulation in the atmosphere. The average U.S. citizen has a carbon footprint of about 20 tons annually.
Because our industry depends almost exclusively on fossil fuels, your business and pleasure travel can deepen your footprint.
Our “Carbon Offset” program provides a thoughtful answer for TTC customers. By buying inexpensive carbon offsets, you can significantly neutralize the negative environmental impact of your travel. In this program we can reduce greenhouse gases by an amount equal to your airline flights. These “carbon offsets” provide immediate funding for programs dedicated to effectively creating cleaner air for all of us.
TTC has partnered with Sustainable Travel International (STI) to purchase carbon offsets from their portfolio of innovative renewable energy and environmental projects. STI is dedicated to providing education and outreach services that will lessen the toll that travel and tourism take on the environment and on local cultures. When you buy a carbon offset, your purchase supports:
Renewable energy on power grids
Solar power systems for schools and public buildings
Wind power systems for farms, ranches, and communities
Watershed restoration to improve water quality and native fish habitats
Re-create critical forests
To date, working with our customers, TTC has purchased thousands of tons of carbon offsets. Ask us about the details for this great “green” program.
Because your carbon offset is “retired,” not sold to another purchaser, it may be tax deductible; please check with your tax advisor.
