Conference Carbon Offset

Barg Coffin Lewis & Trapp, LLP, is sponsoring the purchase of approximately 111 tons of carbon offsets from Native, which will contribute to a United States Wind Energy Generation project at Dempsey Ridge in Oklahoma, to offset the conference’s greenhouse gas impacts, including the conference itself, estimated travel emissions to and from the conference by its over 700 attendees, and the impacts of the Tenaya over the course of the conference.  The Dempsey Ridge project allows land to remain in agricultural use and provides clean energy.  For more information on the Big Smile Wind Farm at Dempsey Ridge and other projects offered by Native, go to https://native.eco/climate-projects/
