As an EPA Green Power Partner, Thoro Packaging purchases enough renewable energy credits (RECs) to offset the amount of energy we consume. For many years Thoro has been part of the Green Power Leadership Club, exceeding expectations in renewable energy efforts. Our credits are purchased through Sterling Planet, and with our recent upgrade to REC (Renewable Energy Credits) RECs, we are proud to officially state that we are utilizing 100% REC (Renewable Energy Credits). This enables our customers to print “Carton Made With Wind Energy” on their folding cartons.
Thoro Packaging is proud of our ongoing sustainability efforts. The use of 100% REC (Renewable Energy Credits) at our facility supports a renewable energy resource that creates proven environmental benefits. This financially supports the development of new renewable electricity production. Energy diversity and security are increased, and dependence on foreign energy sources is reduced.
In addition, Thoro’s purchase of renewable energy reduces an estimated 4,199,796 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions. The greenhouse gas equivalency: comparable to taking 364 personal vehicles off U.S. roads for a year.
