Velocity Print Solutions offsets 100 percent of its electricity with renewable energy

Tuesday, January 14, 2014

Press release from the issuing company

Albany, NY  – Velocity Print Solutions has partnered with Renewable Choice Energy to support the growth of renewable energy projects in the U.S. and reduce the environmental impact of the electricity we use. By purchasing renewable energy credits (RECs) from Renewable Choice, Velocity is taking responsibility for the emissions generated from its electricity use and helping change the way energy is produced in the USA.  The purchase of over 900,000 kWh of American Wind REC’s, which is equivalent to offsetting 1,044,813.85 lbs of CO2 has an environmental impact that is similar to:

Planting  12,152 tree seedlings and growing them for ten years or

The Removal of 98.73 passenger vehicles from the road for a year

Jim Stiles, CEO states: “We are excited about our commitment to reduce our environmental impact and educate our employees on the choices that are available for supporting clean energy.  This decision is part of our commitment of doing business without leaving footprints. We believe we should create lasting impressions on the mind…not the planet.”  Velocity also maintains an in-house recycling paper and corrugated program and is a FSC™ Certified Chain of Custody Printer. Velocity has purchased RECs since 2008 and is currently working with Renewable Choice Energy.
