Esurance Supports Farm Compost Project

  • November 15, 2010
Esurance, the direct-to-consumer personal auto insurance company, has purchased carbon offsets from the new Laurelbrook Farm Compost Project.

With its offset purchase, Esurance continues to address greenhouse gas emissions from their offices' electricity use and corporate travel, while simultaneously helping to further the technology available to family farms.

The project is estimated to prevent more than 15,000 tons of greenhouse gas pollution over the next 10 years -- an amount equivalent to the CO2 emissions from 31,646 barrels of oil consumed.

Since 2009, Esurance has teamed with NativeEnergy to offset policyholder carbon emissions and electricity use in each of their 14 office locations. Now, as a supporter of the Laurelbrook Farm Project, Esurance is helping provide funding for the family-owned farm in East Canaan, Conn. -Tanya Irwin
