This Independence Day fleet businesses nationwide are turning to the CSI Fleet Fuel Card to help their businesses save big on rising fuel prices. In today's world the rising gas prices are hitting businesses on a national scale. Businesses must manage their fleet fuel expenses as best they can. Our leading industry CSI Fleet Fuel Card provides the perfect set of tools necessary to manage expenses maximize business savings.

After just a few short months of relief at the pump, gas prices have begun to rise at a steady pace. Since March, the average gas price has risen from $1.90/gallon to $2.65/gallon while oil prices have more than doubled. We cannot predict the oil prices or the gas prices for the future, but we can be prepared with the right tools.

Renewable Energy Gets Boost from Hotels Nationwide -- Green Your Event Launches to Meet Growing Demand for Green Meetings

Renewable Energy Gets Boost from Hotels Nationwide -- Green Your Event Launches to Meet Growing Demand for Green Meetings

In a first of its kind program launch, Boulder, CO-based Renewable Choice Energy launches Green Your Event with DoubleTree Palm Beach Gardens, Marriott's Fairfield Inn & Suites, Baltimore, Chicago's Talbott Hotel, and more. This Green Meeting program supports renewable energy and carbon reduction projects across the U. S. while engaging and educating event attendees on the values of supporting wind power and carbon offsets.

Boulder, CO (PRWEB) June 25, 2009

Renewable Choice Energy, a leading national provider of renewable energy credits and carbon offsets (http://www. renewablechoice. com/business-learn-about-clean-tech. html) has launched a first of its kind program, Green Your Event (http://www. renewablechoice. com/business-industry-solutions. html), to empower meeting and event planners at hotels and event centers to support wind power and carbon reduction by offsetting event facilities, attendee travel, and more.

A number of high profile boutique and hotel chain branches kick off the program this month including Chicago's Talbott Hotel, Marriott's Fairfield Inn & Suites, Baltimore; DoubleTree Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, and the Hotels Parisi and L'Auberge Del Mar in La Jolla, California.

"We chose to be a Green Your Event partner because the program allows us to offer our guests credible solutions that they can take to help address today's energy and climate challenges. It's a great program for us to expand our green initiatives," said Patrick Leary, General Manager, Fairfield Inn & Suites, Baltimore, Baltimore's first green hotel.

Responding to the growing demand for green events and meetings, Green Your Event is the first nationwide program to add a strong renewable energy and carbon offset element to the burgeoning green meeting (http://www. renewablechoice. com/business-industry-solutions. html) movement. Because the greatest environmental footprint of an event or conference comes from participant travel to and from the event, the majority of the program's offset package includes verified emission reductions (http://www. renewablechoice. com/business-about-emission-reductions-carbon-offsets. html) (VERs, also known as carbon offsets) for air and ground travel verified by the American Carbon Registry. Additionally, the electricity used for lodging, session facilities, and cell phones is offset with renewable energy credits (RECs) (http://www. renewablechoice. com/business-about-renewable-energy. html) certified by Green-e Energy, the leading third-party REC auditor in the U. S. Offsetting events has been embraced by the EPA, the Green Meeting Industry Council and the Convention Industry Council.

"We chose Renewable Choice to support our greening initiatives because we are committed to reducing our environmental impact and to educating our guests and conference attendees to do the same," offered Michael McMahon, General Manager of DoubleTree Palm Beach Gardens, "Green Your Event was the perfect solution for our green meeting needs."

Green Your Event doesn't stop at providing offsets, however. A key element of the program is educating and engaging event and meeting attendees on the impacts of travel and lodging while increasing awareness about the values of helping fund wind power and carbon reduction projects across the U. S. Funding these projects through the purchase of offsets helps reduce carbon dioxide pollution, the leading cause of climate change and a "danger to human health" according to the EPA, while reducing our dependence on fossil fuels and supporting clean technology development. Renewable Choice has also kept the program affordable with packages as low at $10 per person, poising Green Your Event as the go-to greening program for events and meetings across the nation. The company will also host of free sustainability webinar (http://www. renewablechoice. com/business-webinars. html) on the topic to help educate hotel and other event venues, as well as event and meeting planners, on ways to make their events more sustainable by supporting clean energy development.

"At the Talbott hotel, environmental initiatives have continued to be a strong driver for new partnerships, programs and purchasing decisions. We are excited to expand our green practices with this program and offer a greener solution for our on-site events," explains Patrick Aversa, Director of Sales and Marketing for Talbott. "This new program, Green Your Event, raises the conscience level for the environmental impact of events as well as a way to balance the impact."

"These hotel events are helping to fund U. S. wind farms and carbon reduction projects with their participation in Green Your Event," said Quayle Hodek, CEO of Renewable Choice Energy. "We're proud to be working with such forward-thinking leaders in the hospitality industry to help reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and clean up our nation's energy infrastructure."

Renewable Choice also supplied renewable energy credits (RECs) to offset the President's Green Inaugural Ball earlier this year and offsets some of the largest green music festivals in the nation in partnership with Planet Bluegrass, among other events.

Renewable Choice Energy (http://www. renewawblechoice. com (http://www. renewawblechoice. com)) is a leading national provider of renewable energy credits (RECs) and verified emission reductions (VERs) (carbon offsets) to hundreds of Fortune 500 Companies and small businesses, thousands of residential customers, and over 850 LEED green building (http://www. renewablechoice. com/business-LEED-green-power-calculator. html) projects in the U.
