Ch2m Hill energy manageCH2M HILL has joined the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Power Partnership, committing to purchase renewable energy to supply its operations.

In 2013, CH2M HILL purchased over 11 kWh of green power, of which 8.5 million kWh were used for its US operations. That’s 17 percent of the firm’s overall electricity use globally and domestically. CH2M HILL plans to substantially increase its green power purchases in the future as part of a commitment to reduce its overall 2017 carbon footprint by 25 percent as compared to a 2012 baseline.

CH2M HILL recognizes Renewable Choice Energy, based in Boulder, Colo., as its current supplier of green power instruments.

The Green Power Partnership has more than 1,300 partner organizations voluntarily using billions of kilowatt-hours of green power annually.
