PALM BEACH, Fla., June 26, 2012 /CNW/ - For the first time in its thirty year history, Leadership Florida® is pleased to announce that its 2012 Annual Meeting has gone 100% carbon neutral.
Taking place at The Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach, Florida from June 28th to July 1st, the carbon emissions associated with the four day event will be offset through JustGreen™, a Just Energy program. One of North America's leading green energy retailers, Just Energy provides residential and commercial customers with simple carbon offset and renewable energy options to help them reduce their environmental impact. Donated by Just Energy, the carbon credits will offset the emissions associated with participants' air and ground travel, hotel stays and event electricity usage. The credits originate locally from the JB Hunt Intermodal Transportation Project in Florida.
"Just Energy is proud to donate JustGreen™ carbon offsets and help make this year's annual meeting carbon neutral," said Irela Bague, Director of Public Relations & Corporate Affairs for Just Energy and Class XXV Leadership Florida® Alumnus. "On behalf of Just Energy, I congratulate Leadership Florida® on their milestone anniversary and their commitment to a stronger, cleaner and greener Florida."
