Roots Advises and Supplies Fortune-500 Company in Achieving Carbon Reduction Targets

Roots Clean Energy was hired by a Fortune Global 500 Company looking to reduce their Scope-2 emissions in the United States.  Headquartered abroad, the US sustainability team was tasked with reducing US emissions.

Starting with their US headquarters in Houston Texas the Company reduced their Scope-2 emissions by purchasing 9,000 Texas Wind Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) from Roots Clean Energy.  This total purchase will avoid an estimated 6,287 metric tons of CO2 emissions which is an equivalent to a reduction of:

  • 16,080,224 miles driven by an average gas-powered car
  • 707,473 gallons of gasoline consumed
  • 14,556 barrels of oil consumed.
  • 288,833 propane cylinders used for home barbecues.
  • 6,929,099 pounds of coal burned.
  • 415,067,456 number of smartphones charged.
  • 2,183 tons of waste recycled instead of landfilled.

Because of this transaction, the Company is able to meet their publicly stated SBTI goals and reduce their Scope-2 emissions in an affordable and impactful way, while focusing future efforts on additional ways to procure renewable energy and reduce emissions.
