WhiteWave Foods Buys Wind Energy RECs

Broomfield, Colorado [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] In an effort to offset the environmental impact associated with operating Natural Products Expo West 2006, which took place last week in the 256,000 square feet of the Anaheim Convention Center, WhiteWave Foods (WWFC) purchased enough green tags, or renewable energy credits (RECs), to cover the almost 58,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of energy used to power it all. With that purchase, from the Bonneville Environmental Foundation, WhiteWave offsets more than 40 tons of climate-altering carbon dioxide emissions — the environmental equivalent of planting more than 10 acres of trees, or keeping the average car off the road for about eight years. WWFC already purchases green tags to offset 100 percent of the electrical energy used in manufacturing natural food products.
