Through a unique partnership with Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF), AGPOM creates incentive for members to “green” their business by asking our vendor partners to dedicate a portion of their revenue to purchasing REC’s in the name of risk purchasing group members.
Founded in Portland, Oregon in 1998, BEF is a national, nonprofit organization. In 2000, they helped to create the voluntary market for carbon offsets by closing the first retail REC trade deal with the Environmental Protection Agency. They also launched the first online carbon calculator in 2001.
With BEF Carbon Offsets, organizations and individuals are able to dedicate funds to the development of renewable energy sources like solar power and wind farms. And this in turn, helps us all reduce the carbon footprints we leave behind.
BEF’s mission is to support the development of renewable energy while empowering people to shrink their carbon footprint.
