WireIE Announces Carbonzero Partnership



    TORONTO, Sept. 12 /CNW/ - WireIE Holdings International Inc. is pleased
to announce a strategic partnership with Carbonzero, a partnership that will
produce significant reductions in carbon emissions throughout the Canadian
telecommunications sector.
    "This alliance allows telecoms to realize a significant financial
benefit, while reducing emissions," said Robert Barlow, President and CEO of
WireIE Holdings International Inc.
    Carbon offsets provides organizations with the opportunity to neutralize
their unavoidable greenhouse gas emissions by contributing to projects that
reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Carbonzero offsets are directed to projects
that either replace fossil fuels with "clean" energy sources such as wind or
solar, or projects that reduce fossil fuel emissions altogether.
    "WireIE's technology will bring a regular stream of offset inventory to
Carbonzero to sell, and give telecoms the tools for quantifying, managing, and
reducing their greenhouse gases," said Kate Holloway, CEO of Carbonzero.
    Richmond Hill-based WireIE is actively involved in the shift from
traditional technologies and deployments, to cost and carbon reducing
solutions. These implementations can include the planning and delivery of
certified emission reduction projects, through the deployment of renewable
energy sources, and carbon trading contracts.
    The global telecom industry is just one example of an opportunity where
companies can utilize carbon neutral technologies, reducing operating
expenses, (OpEx) generating profits in carbon credit trading in the wake of
rising energy prices, improving corporate sustainability, and creating
shareholder value by managing carbon more effectively.
    The utilization of wind power and solar energy reduces maintenance
concerns and the high costs that come with traditional technologies. WireIE is
committed to educating the industry on this new way of thinking, and
demonstrating the value of investing in carbon-reduction solutions for
wireless carriers and improved environmental impact overall.
    Toronto-based Carbonzero is the leading provider of high-quality,
renewable energy and corporate greenhouse gas management services. Carbonzero
has led the way in setting the industry standards for measurable, verified
emissions reductions since 2006.
    Most notably, Carbonzero was recently selected by the Liberal party as
the official carbon offset provider for their campaign emissions. Carbonzero
will offset the greenhouse gas emissions produced by the Liberal Party of
Canada's Leader's Tour for the federal election.
