Ogden Publications, publisher of MOTHER EARTH NEWS and the largest and longest-running publisher in the green community, is pleased to report it has offset 100 percent of its electricity usage by purchasing 2.4 million kilowatt-hours of renewable energy credits. A renewable energy credit is a unit of electricity that has been generated from a renewable source.

Bryan Welch, publisher and editorial director of Ogden Publications, says, “Our readers expect genuine environmental stewardship from us. Choosing renewable energy credits is one way we can support the technologies and policies we promote in our magazines.”

With this purchase, Ogden becomes the largest 100-percent purchaser of green power among publishers in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Power Partnership, a voluntary program that supports the organizational procurement of green power. According to the EPA, Ogden’s purchase helps avoid carbon dioxide emissions similar to that produced by driving nearly 1.6 million miles or powering 120 average American homes for one year. The investment offsets two years of electricity usage for Ogden’s offices in Kansas and Minnesota, and the printing of its 10 publications in Tennessee and Minnesota.
