Environmental Attributes (EA) for Business

The Plugging In: Opportunities to Procure Renewable Energy for Nonutility Companies and Institutiona in Alberta by the Pembina Institute and the Rocky Mountain Institute for Calgary Economic Development outlines a complex process for Information Technology, Consumer goods and other corporations to purchase renewable energy through environmental attributes (EAs) Simplifying this process by certifying environmental attributes of projects within the city of Calgary and the resulting additional GHG emissions will help facilitate this environmental attribute process, ensure additionality and allow corporations to meet sustainability targets. Other projects such as transit could be added into the mix of environmental attributes which reduce GHG emissions. The certification of environmental attributes removes the risk for both corporations and environmental projects which reduce GHG emissions.
