TerraPass, a retailer of carbon offsets and energy efficiency products, has announced that in less than 100 days after the launch of the TerraPass Carbon Balanced Business program, 100 businesses have partnered with the company to measure their carbon.

TerraPass funds three different project types: clean energy produced by wind power; farm power, which produces clean electricity from animal waste; and landfill gas capture.

"We're excited that so many businesses are working with us to fight global warming so soon after we launched our Carbon Balanced Business program," says TerraPass CEO Erik Blachford. "It's a clear demonstration that businesses all over the country see value in showing both their employees and their customers that they are willing and able to do something about climate change."
