Bonneville Environmental Foundation

Main Info

Founded in Portland, Oregon in 1998, BEF is a national, nonprofit organization. One of our proudest achievements to date has been our role in the development of the carbon offset market. In 2000, we helped create the voluntary market for renewable energy by closing the first retail REC trade deal with the Environmental Protection Agency. We also launched the first online carbon calculator in 2001. As of 2008, all of our renewable energy based carbon offset products are Green-e® Climate certified, the highest certification possible. With BEF Carbon Offsets, organizations and individuals are able to dedicate funds to the development of renewable energy sources like solar power and wind farms. And this in turn, helps us reduce the carbon footprints we leave behind.
