Germany-based 3C Group, which originates and procures carbon credits from renewable projects around the world, and Sterling Planet Inc., a Norcross, Ga.-headquartered provider of certificates from wind, solar and other clean sources, have formed a partnership to offer multinational companies climate change solutions.

3C and Sterling Planet have teamed to provide the needs of enterprises seeking to meet both mandatory and voluntary corporate-wide greenhouse gas reduction goals and make their business operations, products and services climate neutral, the companies say. 3C Group recently launched 3C The Carbon Credit Company LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary with offices in Washington, D.C. Together, the companies will leverage their combined market positions to support long-term climate change strategies.

"The demand for carbon neutral business solutions is growing at an unprecedented, rapid pace," says Mel Jones, Sterling Planet's president and chief executive officer. "Multinational businesses are particularly intent on identifying an umbrella solution that will address all their diverse environmental and sustainability goals at all their many locations around the globe."
