TerraPass, a consumer retailer and marketer of greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction offsets, has unveiled the carbon balanced business program designed to help businesses balance out the carbon emissions created from their daily operations. No registration is required for the free TerraPass online carbon calculator that determines carbon footprints.

The TerraPass business online calculator considers five aspects of a typical organization's carbon footprint: on-site energy use, off-site server energy use, company vehicles, business travel and employee commutes.

TerraPass is launching this program with a group of businesses, including Expedia Inc., Architectural Area Lighting Co., Butterfield & Robinson Inc. and Mozilla.

"Businesses of all sizes have an impact on climate change, and we are in a unique position to help them measure and reduce their carbon footprint," says TerraPass CEO Erik Blachford.

TerraPass works by funding clean energy and GHG reduction projects throughout the U.S., including wind farms and biomass energy. All of TerraPass emissions calculations are based on the World Resources Institute Greenhouse Gas Protocol, an international accounting tool for GHG emissions.
