100% reclaimed carbon footprint™
Chicory Wealth’s support for Clearloop’s Panola County solar project will help provide clean energy, promote economic growth and create jobs in the region
Clearloop is proud to partner with Chicory Wealth to support the expansion of renewable energy in Panola County, MS. Clearloop is introducing two new solar projects into the region, which will begin providing clean energy for residents and businesses in 2024. Chicory Wealth’s support will remove over 237,000 pounds of carbon from the atmosphere and help increase equitable access to clean energy.
Chicory Wealth, a holistic Financial Life Planning company, has a long-standing commitment to sustainability and ESG investments. As a Certified B Corp, they joined the B Corp Climate Collective in 2022 and made the SME Climate Commitment to work to become carbon neutral.
Although Chicory Wealth is an all-virtual company, they recognize they have a carbon footprint. Each of their employees works in a home office that consumes energy. They also travel to work-related events and meetings, hold events for their clients, and purchase supplies, all of which contribute to their carbon footprint.
The Chicory Wealth team worked with the Clearloop team to calculate their carbon footprint and based on those calculations can now displace the equivalent amount of carbon from traditional electricity production. For more insight into how carbon emissions were calculated and how Clearloop works to offset these emissions, click here to read Chicory Wealth’s recent blog post.
Chicory Wealth has also created a webpage dedicated to their work with Clearlooop. Learn more about the Clearloop Panola County project here.
