December 2006 - Aspen Skiing Company announced that it is offering skiers the opportunity to offset their travel-related greenhouse gas emissions with Green-e certified SkiGreen Tags. The tags are available in both $2 and $20 denominations, representing 100 kWh and 1 MWh of renewable generation, respectively, and are supplied by the Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF) from renewable energy plants located across North America.
Participants in the program will receive acknowledgment of their carbon offset along with SkiGreen stickers for helmets or gear, and a coupon for Aspen/Snowmass services. BEF will reinvest 20% of the revenues from tags sold in Aspen into the community for new local renewable energy projects through a partnership with The City of Aspen's Canary Initiative.
