Offsetters Climate Solutions Inc. ("OCS" or the "Company") (tsx venture:COO)(frankfurt:9EA) congratulates Vancity, Canada's largest community credit union - with over $17 billion in assets and close to 500,000 member-owners - on achieving their environmental sustainability goals for 2012. Offsetters is pleased to have been selected as the provider of choice for high quality carbon offsets to help Vancity meet their goal of carbon neutrality for the 5th consecutive year.
Vancity has been a leader in enhancing the environmental sustainability of its operations through energy efficiency, recycling, and the use of green building materials in their facilities. Every year, Vancity measures their footprint and then reduces their greenhouse gas emissions to the greatest extent possible. For the remaining emissions which cannot be reduced at source, they choose to offset these through the use of carbon offsets. In addition to being carbon neutral since 2007, Vancity has saved in excess of $2 million in energy costs since committing to reducing energy use and emissions from their buildings.
