RNK Capital, an investor in renewable energy and carbon emission reduction projects, has announced the formation of The GreenLife Organization, a provider of comprehensive, global solutions for businesses, institutions and individuals to reduce their carbon footprints.

GreenLife plans to purchase power from renewable sources, such as wind, solar and hydro. GreenLife's Canadian wind project consists of building a 20 MW wind farm that would deliver electricity into the New England Power Pool.

Initially, GreenLife will focus on the corporate market, offering clients a complete solution from early stage analysis and carbon footprint measurement to development and execution of a long-term "GreenPlan," GreenLife's proprietary green management tool.

The GreenPlan will recommend behavioral changes and energy-efficiency strategies based on the collection of comprehensive data, as well as the purchase of renewable energy credits.

"Verified environmental credits are the surest, simplest, most effective and often, least expensive way for a business to make an immediate positive impact on climate change," says Robert Koltun, founder and managing member of RNK Capital. "GreenLife's unique strategic relationship with RNK Capital will enable it to provide clients with a customized portfolio of guaranteed, diversified high-quality environmental credits, providing a long-term solution at guaranteed prices."

GreenLife will introduce solutions for consumers who want to reduce their individual carbon footprints in early 2008.
