NCTA partners with Carbonfund.org for greener Cable Show
The National Cable & Telecommunications Association has partnered with Carbonfund.org to make this year’s Cable Show more environmentally friendly.
“We began an initiative to reduce waste several years ago and are eager to ratchet up our efforts to promote conservation at The Cable Show 2010,” said Barbara York, senior vice president of the NCTA. “Many of our exhibitors have requested a carbon offset program, and we are happy to provide one. Carbonfund.org makes it easy to do the right thing and brings us closer to our goal of producing a carbon-neutral event.”
By working with Carbonfund.org, the NCTA will provide a voluntary, turn-key carbon offset program to help exhibitors meet their corporate “greening” goals at May’s Cable Show in Los Angeles.
The project also includes an initiative that allows both exhibitors and attendees to contribute to the New York State Landfill Methane Project, a third-party validated project identified by Carbonfund.org.
Additional information  about the Cable Show green project is available. Those interested can also contact the NCTA's Department of Industry Affairs at (202) 222-2430.
Earlier this week, the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers announced the launch of its Smart Energy Management Initiative (SEMI)  that was designed to implement best practices for green projects.
