Renewable Energy Program

More than ever before, members, readers, and subscribers expect publishers and organizations to lead the charge in sustaining our environment. Selecting paper and distribution methods that are environmentally friendly and working with partners like Allen Press that employ responsible manufacturing processes help demonstrate your commitment to the environment.

Electricity generation is the single largest source of pollution in the United States. Currently, 90% of our electricity comes from fossil fuels and nuclear energy. Allen Press works supports renewable energy initiatives by purchasing renewable energy certificates, or carbon offsets, from the Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF).

BEF, a non-profit organization, sells carbon offsets as renewable energy certificates to displace traditional polluting sources of electricity with clean, secure, and sustainable renewable sources of energy that come from solar, wind, and certified low-impact hydroelectric power from across North America.energy-bef

Your organization can exhibit its support for environmental sustainability by participating in the Allen Press Renewable Energy Program. For as little as one cent per book, journal, or magazine, we will work with the Bonneville Environmental Foundation to acquire renewable energy certificates to offset the energy used specifically in producing your publication.

If you would like to off set the energy used specifically in producing your publication, please contact your sales representative or account manager.
