Local carbon offsets help families achieve energy security!

Sustainable Tompkins launched the Finger Lakes Climate Fund to support local efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and protect our climate.  The Fund provides our community a place to purchase offsets for carbon emissions that we can’t avoid making.

We applaud all efforts to decrease our carbon footprints at home and at work, but sometimes we have to travel to see loved ones or for critical business reasons.  The Finger Lakes Climate Fund lets us calculate emissions caused by our travel or other activities, and purchase offsets of those emissions.

The funds from the offsets are distributed as grants to low and moderate-income residents in our community to help them reduce their energy consumption by insulating their homes, installing more efficient heating systems, or converting to renewable energy systems.
