Advancing ICU's Ongoing Corporate Social Responsibility Initiative
HOLLISTER, Calif., Oct. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ICU Eyewear, a pioneer in sustainable and fashionable eyewear, is pleased to announce that all ICU Eco product as well as manufacturing and corporate activities are now certified as CarbonNeutral® compliant by The CarbonNeutral Company, a world-leading provider of carbon-reduction solutions. As part of an ongoing corporate initiative towards advancing corporate social responsibility programs, and by working with a Methane Reduction initiative in California and a Wind Power Energy program abroad, ICU will offset corporate carbon emissions to net zero, as in accordance with the CarbonNeutral protocol.
As an initial step in offsetting carbon emissions, ICU will work with the Chifeng Wind Power program Initiative to provide the Northeast China Power Grid with 130,000 megawatt-hours of clean electricity every year. China is currently the largest producer and consumer of coal worldwide, with 80% of their energy coming from this carbon-intensive fuel source. Today, the country has a dire need for clean energy. The Chifeng Wind Power initiative improves the overall local air quality by preventing the production of environmental pollution common with coal-fired plants.
In addition, ICU Eco will work with The Fiscalini Farms Methane Reduction program in California to reduce methane output, a common environmental hazard common in dairy farms. Teaming up with CarbonNeutral, ICU Eyewear is facilitating a clean methane production refocusing. This process utilizes an anaerobic digester system to capture and destroy methane from cow manure before it is released into the environment, and redistributes the power generated from its production to other innovative uses.
Globally conscious ICU consistently produces on-trend, quality frames at an attainable cost, with most readers priced under $25. ICU, now certified in accordance CarbonNeutral protocol, sets the global standard for green eyewear production. Today, with each pair of readers sold, they are making the world greener and more sustainable.
