Sustainability Success with NativeEnergy

The AAR is making it easy for members to purchase Renewable Energy Credits when traveling to the AAR & SBL Annual Meetings. By simply clicking a box during the registration process, members can choose to give $15 to NativeEnergy. 

The AAR’s Sustainability Task Force selected NativeEnergy because of its commitment to reducing greenhouse gases while supporting its sustainability projects. NativeEnergy helps assist Native American, farmer-owned, community-based renewable energy projects that create social, economic, and environmental benefits. These projects displace electricity from fossil fuels and reduce other greenhouse gas emissions.

The AAR and SBL are pleased to have collected a total of $10,590 from 653 participants attending the 2017 Annual Meetings in Boston for this carbon offset program. Along with a $500 donation for the AAR and SBL’s staff travel, we sent NativeEnergy a check for $11,090. These funds were split towards the two projects listed below. To learn more about NativeEnergy, visit http://www.nativeenergy.com/. To see statistics from previous annual meetings, please see here.  

NativeEnergy Projects Supported by AAR and SBL

REED in the Yaeda Valley, Northern Tanzania

This year, we have decided to support two new projects: the Seneca Meadows Landfill Gas to Energy Project and the REDD Project in the Yaeda Valley.

One of the supported projects is just north of Boston in Waterloo, New York, at the Seneca Meadows Renewable Resource Park. The Innovative Energy Systems/Landfill Energy Systems’ renewable natural gas plant is the second green energy operation at the park to produce a domestic energy source, in addition to the landfill gas-to-energy plant. Landfill gas derived from methane is purified to produce up to 3,000 standard cubic feet per minute of pipeline quality “natural gas.” The process is cleaner than fossil fuel derived energy processes, thereby reducing emissions and conserving natural resources. In addition to the landfill gas-to- energy project, Seneca Meadows has a LEED certified education center and a wetlands preserve, which is home to over 215 species of birds, including endangered species. The Seneca Meadows Renewable Resource Park is the first location in the United States to host both a landfill gas supplied renewable natural gas plant and a landfill gas-to-energy plant.

The other project is the REDD (Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation) Project in the Yaeda Valley which strengthens land tenure, management capacity and local natural resource management, as well as diversifies local incomes, in two Hadzabe hunter-gatherer communities in Northern Tanzania. By working in conjunction with traditional leaders, elected village governments and a team of community members, they are able to contribute to local and international conservation aims. Successful avoided deforestation is achieved through a series of interventions including reinforcing the implementation of the approved village land use plan and associated village by-laws, improving forest conservation and management activities and addressing the primary driver of deforestation, slash and burn agriculture. The community members are trained to patrol and report any land use change and/or poaching activities that contribute to tackling illegal land intrusion and resulting land conversion at both local and district level.

The AAR and SBL are continuing this program in 2018. We currently have a 6.42% combined participation rate! We hope to maintain or improve on that as more members register in the coming months for the 2018 Annual Meetings. We encourage you to make this inexpensive commitment to helping make our meetings more environmentally friendly.

Thank you to all of our AAR contributors in 2017
