Eversheds Sutherland Purchases RECs for 100% Offset of US Office Energy Usage

Eversheds Sutherland is pleased to announce that it has purchased Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) from Cobb EMC for a 100% offset of Eversheds Sutherland’s US offices’ estimated energy usage through 2021. The purchase is part of the firm’s environmental goals guided by its Sustainability Commitment

Established for the US offices in 2008, the Sustainability Commitment is a formal effort to significantly reduce waste and promote conservation of energy and resources. Led in the US by Partners Thomas H. Warren (Energy) and Linda A. Sciuto (Tax), the purchase of these RECs fulfills one aspect of Eversheds Sutherland’s Sustainability Commitment. The RECs will be supplied from Cobb EMC’s Azalea solar project in Georgia. 

"We are committed to helping our clients achieve their renewable energy and sustainability goals, so we are proud to complete this purchase to achieve our own goals together with Cobb EMC," said Eversheds Sutherland Partner Thomas Warren. "Purchasing renewable energy to satisfy the needs of all of our US offices is an important step to create a more sustainable business, and we are proud to partner with our client Cobb EMC for this."

"At Cobb EMC, our carbon reduction and renewable energy efforts reflect the cooperative’s commitment toward a clean energy system," said Tim Jarrell, Vice President, Power Supply Rates & DER Strategy at Cobb EMC. "We are excited to sell RECs to a company like Eversheds Sutherland that shares our same commitment to sustainability."
