Today marks the beginning of the Democratic National Convention in Denver. The DNCC plans to make this convention, as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi puts it,
"...the greenest, most sustainable, most successful political convention in history."
As part of that plan organizers are implementing the “Green Delegate Challenge”, an incentive to encourage delegations to commit to offsetting their carbon footprint from attending the convention.
The delegation (or delegations) with the highest percentage of delegates offsetting their carbon get fun and (and presumably green) prizes and special recognition on the convention floor. Of course the point of the challenge isn’t winning a prize or a special mention, but to encourage awareness and action from delegates to reduce their carbon footprint.
To help in that effort Native Energy Inc. has partnered with the DNCC to provide offsets for several domestic, community-based alternative energy projects.
