AWEA works hard every day to grow wind energy, powering a cleaner, stronger America. But our commitment to sustainability doesn’t stop at our job descriptions, it’s one of our core values.
We heart icon Wind Energy because it supplies affordable, reliable energy while also contributing to a cleaner and safer environment. Wind energy is one of the most cost effective solutions for cutting carbon pollution, reducing U.S. carbon emissions every year by more than 132 million metric tons, equivalent to eliminating the emissions from 28.1 million cars!
Wind power is making a big impact in the effort to combat climate change, but that doesn’t mean we can neglect our own organization’s environmental footprint. AWEA’s Green Team leads office sustainability initiatives, through which we reduce AWEA’s operational impact on the environment or help other organizations where we can.
