Our hosting provider has partnered with Green Mountain Energy, the leading provider of cleaner energy and carbon offsetting solutions, to purchase carbon credits to offset the emissions of our hosting operations. On behalf of Novus Media Today, Green Mountain will invest in renewable energy sources like wind and solar power as well as biomass facilities – many of which have been setup as a result of their initiatives. Novus Media Today's funding will also provide support for reforestation projects through Green Mountain’s relationship with the Pacific Forest Trust. Our emissions levels are reviewed annually and carbon credits adjusted accordingly.
