MEDA Launches Sarona Green Carbon Offset Program

Monday, July 21st, 2008

Mennonite Economic Development Association has developed a unique carbon offset program that enables triple-bottom-line projects and companies that are too small to qualify for most carbon offset dollars to access this form of financing.
