Posted February 13, 2019 10:37:14A nursery facility in New York City is opening up a new business offering its clients the chance to buy carbon offsets, a move that could be seen as a boon for the climate change industry.
Growth of greenhouse nurseries is expected to reach $5.5 billion by 2025, according to the US National Association of Growers.
While there is some competition for the space, one of the most popular nursery sites, the Greenhouse Exchange in NYC, has been offering offset programs since 2011.
“We’ve been offering carbon offset for about 10 years now, and we’ve never really sold offsets, so now we are getting into it,” CEO Mark Smith told TechRadars.
“I’m really excited that we’re going to have something that we can really help the environment, and that is what the Greenhouses Exchange is all about.”
It’s an incredibly competitive environment and we are going to be able to help grow our business in the short term.
“The offset program is part of a growing trend for greenhouses.
The United Nations has set targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 50 per cent by 2025.
The offset company will be selling a range of offsets ranging from solar panels to natural gas to offset wood pellets to create carbon savings.
The company is also opening a new office in the New York area to expand its footprint in the state.
The New York State Greenhouses Association said that offsets are now the fastest growing type of offset in the country, and have already accounted for a quarter of all offsets purchased.”
There are so many greenhouses in New Jersey and Connecticut, and New York is very popular for greenhouse offsets,” Smith said.”
So the more we can grow in New England, that’s great for New York.
“The Greenhouses Exchanges, which are located in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island, offer a variety of options to offset the climate damage caused by climate change.”
And we have to say to them, ‘you are going in this with us because you want to buy a product that’s going to help us get carbon credits.'”
The second thing is that we are able to get them in the same way that we do all of our other products, so we are providing a service that we want our customers to get.”
And we have to say to them, ‘you are going in this with us because you want to buy a product that’s going to help us get carbon credits.’
We are really proud of what we are doing, and so it’s a great opportunity for us to grow.
“The company currently has a handful of locations in the United States and has also partnered with some other countries.
The offsets include a solar panel program, wood pellets, natural gas offsets and offset wood from trees and trees from natural gas, as well as wood from wood harvested in a natural gas facility.”
When we started out, we sold offsets in the US to other countries because it’s just so hard to do in New Hampshire and New Jersey,” Smith added.”
The New Hampshire market is very big and so we have a big presence there and we get a lot of inquiries from our customers.
“A lot of our customers want offsets, but there are a lot more that want offsets in other parts of the world.”
