On August 2, COTAP issued a press release about working with Expedia, which became the first Fortune 500 company to choose carbon offsets which directly share 60% of revenues with people who live on less than $2/day. The news was covered by both GreenBiz and Sustainable Brands, two of the longest-standing and most respected news organizations covering (you guessed it!) green and sustainable business.
Sustainable Brands’ August 3rd coverage was titled “Expedia Combating Poverty, Climate Change with Revenue-Sharing Carbon Offset Program.”
GreenBiz Editorial Director Heather Clancy interviewed COTAP founder Tim Whitley about how we can make carbon offsets go miles further. The 35 minute interview appeared in the GreenBiz 350 Podcast on August 11th. On Monday August 14th, we were the GreenBiz’ lead story titled “Why travel giant Expedia paid a premium for these carbon offsets.”
