Ben & Jerry's Supports South Dakota Wind Project

August 2002 - Ben & Jerry's announced that it will offset a year's worth of carbon dioxide emissions from its Vermont ice cream production facilities by supporting the construction of a new 750-kW wind turbine on Native American lands in South Dakota. Through its participation in NativeEnergy's WindBuilders Business Partner program, Ben & Jerry's will purchase renewable energy credits equivalent to 4.5 million kWh of wind energy generated over the life of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe wind turbine currently under development. The purchase will offset approximately 5,000 tons of CO2.

The WindBuilders program enables individuals and businesses to support new wind farm construction through the advance purchase of long-term streams of renewable energy credits, including the associated CO2 offsets.
