Carbon Offsets

GRGR now offers carbon offset credits. Green Energy Resources offsets include reforestation, carbon and methane reduction from landfills. The sale of Offset credits represents a major financial opportunity for the company to capitalize on the rapidly growing international and expanding US market demands for emissions trading.
