Baltimore-based Constellation Energy has announced that this year's Constellation Energy Senior Players Championship will be made carbon neutral by countering an estimated 1,400 metric tons of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through on-site actions and the purchase of offsets. The Senior Players Championship will be held through Oct. 12 at the Baltimore Country Club in Timonium, Md.
The tournament's GHG footprint will be reduced through the purchase of 1,400 carbon credits from a Kyoto-certified hydro project and the purchase of an estimated 60 MWh of Green-e Energy certified wind renewable energy credits.
‘At this year's Constellation Energy Senior Players Championship, we're advancing to the next level of environmental stewardship and accountability by taking measures to achieve a carbon neutral event,’ says Mayo A. Shattuck III, chairman, president and CEO of Constellation Energy. ‘This tournament presented us with an opportunity to continue addressing global climate change on both a local and national level, and we look forward to continuing our efforts to effectively reduce greenhouse gas emissions through innovative energy solutions.’
