Alkemists Pharmaceuticals today announced that it has partnered with Green Mountain Energy Company to take the necessary steps in offsetting 100% of the total calculated carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions thereby enabling them to operate as a "carbon neutral" analytical laboratory.

Costa Mesa, CA (PRWEB) July 30, 2008 -- Alkemists Pharmaceuticals today announced that it has partnered with Green Mountain Energy Company to take the necessary steps in offsetting 100% of the total calculated carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions thereby enabling them to operate as a "carbon neutral" analytical laboratory.

Partnering with http://www.greenmountainenergy.com/ [Green Mountain Energy Company] to create a CO2 emissions footprint for http://alkemist.com/green.htm [Alkemists's] entire operation, they have measured the emissions impact of annual electricity, refrigerant and natural gas usage, employee commuting and corporate air travel. The emissions were found to be approximately 31 metric tons of CO2. To put that in perspective, that is about the same environmental impact as driving a car almost 76,000 miles! It is equivalent to taking about 6 cars off the road annually or planting more than 4,100 trees. Furthermore, by offsetting these emissions, it has the same environmental impact as recycling over 168,000 aluminum cans and recycling over 27,300 pounds of newspaper.

By purchasing enough Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) made from wind sources, Alkemists offset 100% of their electricity and refrigerant (A/C) related CO2 emissions in 2007 and 2008. This commitment will help offset over 11 metric tons of carbon dioxide, a harmful greenhouse gas and potential significant contributor of global climate change.

Alkemists has also committed to neutralizing
