Sustainable Food Trade Association Webinar Series
Understanding the Carbon Offset Market
Thursday, May 7 at 2 p.m. ET (11 a.m. PT)
While we all work to reduce our carbon footprint as much as possible, some greenhouse gas emissions are unavoidable. Carbon offsets have become a common tool to help combat the impacts of those emissions, but they are too often misunderstood.
SFTA’s Understanding the Carbon Offset Market brings in experts from the Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF) and TerraPass to provide an overview of the carbon offset market and discuss how to choose projects relevant to your company’s operations. Topics will include what carbon offsets are, what types of projects are available, and examples of how some companies utilize their commitment to carbon offset projects to tell a compelling sustainability story.
Val Fishman, Vice President Corporate Partnerships, Bonneville Environmental Foundation: At BEF, Val creates long-term partnerships that advance environmental restoration and education with some of the world’s most influential brands. Val serves on the Board of Directors for the Green Sports Alliance, and is a LEED® Green Associate.
Nancy Bsales, Manager, Carbon Solutions, TerraPass: Nancy has helped build TerraPass into a well-respected leader in sustainable solutions. She continually helps partners reduce their environmental impact with effective tools such as footprinting, offsets, and Renewable Energy Certificates.
