Denver International Carbon Offset Program Fails To Take Off
Denver International Airport’s plans to implement a carbon offset program for travelers has been placed in an indefinite holding pattern due to minimal interest from vendors, USAToday reports.
Last year, Greenprint Denver, a panel of environmental experts assembled by Denver’s mayor, targeted DIA to help the city reach its goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 10 percent per capita by 2012.
One of the first airports in the U.S. to consider offering passengers the ability to buy carbon offsets, DIA began soliciting proposals for three-year non-exclusive contracts from carbon offset companies in January of 2008.
The airport says it received just one proposal and may redesign the program by partnering with airlines and soliciting proposals again, says airport spokesman Jeff Green.
