This initiative complements Colbert’s overall sustainable strategy and commitment to reducing the environmental impact of its operations. The investment allows Colbert to lower its carbon footprint and protect the environment, and supports the development of renewable energy technologies.

“We manufacture paperboard-based folding cartons, which is a sustainable alternative to plastics,” states Colbert President and COO, John Lackner, “and now we are able to further our strategy to meet overall clean energy goals with wind energy credits. We firmly believe it’s important to make sustainable decisions with the future in mind for our employees and their families, our customers and our community.

Colbert made this investment in renewable wind energy by purchasing Green-e® Energy certified renewable energy certificates (RECs) to reduce the emissions associated with its electricity consumption. That’s an environmental impact equivalent to the avoidance of 17,640 barrels of oil.* A REC represents the environmental benefits associated with one megawatt-hour of energy generated from renewable resources.
