In celebration of Earth Day, the Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., presidential campaign has partnered with Charlotte, Vt.-based Native Energy to offset the carbon emissions produced by the campaign's offices and travel. Native Energy is a Native American company that offers traditional renewable energy credits, as well as "help build" credits, which help finance and develop new renewable energy projects, including wind farms.

In addition to purchasing carbon offsets, the campaign will take a series of conservation measures, including buying 100% recycled paper products; recycling paper, glass, cans and cardboard; installing motion-controlled lights to reduce energy when offices are not in use; and locating its headquarters next to a subway station to encourage staff to use public transportation.

According to Clinton's office, she has proposed creating a $50 billion Strategic Energy Fund to support clean and renewable energy technologies. In addition, she supports legislation to establish a flexible, market-based system to combat global warming, and further investments in biofuels, wind, clean coal and other clean energy technologies that hold promise for mitigating climate change.
