Sierra Club Tours Establish Carbon Emissions Offset Program

Sierra Club Outings, the tour arm of environmental organization Sierra Club, has signed on with NativeEnergy Travel Offsets to give clients a means for calculating the carbon emissions generated by their travel. Sierra Club travelers can opt to pay to offset these carbon emissions, with the money then funding NativeEnergy's renewable energy projects.

The Sierra Club Outings web site will feature a co-branded page, linked to during the trip reservation process, to allow clients to make a donation to offset their travel's impact. The new affiliation with NativeEnergy Travel Offsets will assist the Sierra Club in its goal of reducing U.S. emissions by 80 percent below 1990 levels by 2050, a 2 percent reduction per year for the next 40 years.
