For the second year, Agromin, the green materials recycler for more than 50 communities in Ventura, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles and Orange counties, has been designated a Climate Action Leader by the Climate Action Registry. Agromin is the first Climate Action Leader in the Agriculture category.
The California Climate Action Registry is a program of the Climate Action Reserve, a nonprofit collaboration in North America that sets consistent and transparent standards to calculate, verify and publicly report greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Members voluntarily promise to monitor and register these emissions. Registry members that have successfully verified their emissions inventory by a third party assessment company earn the status of Climate Action Leader and their emission results are posted online (http://www.climateregistry.org).
"Knowing how much greenhouse gas we emit as a company is the important first step in managing and ultimately reducing our emissions," says Bill Camarillo, Agromin CEO. "It helps us plan our sustainability strategies for now and in the future. Our core business is to recycle green materials so we can reduce waste and greenhouse gases at landfills. Our goal is to do everything we can so the process of recycling green waste is sustainable, carbon-neutral and energy-efficient."
Agromin manufactures earth-friendly soil products for farmers, landscapers and consumers made from green material collected from communities throughout Southern California. Each month, Agromin receives and processes thousands of tons of urban wood and green waste and then uses a safe, organic and scientific system to formulate the green materials into its soil products. The result is more vigorous and healthier plants and gardens, and on the conservation side, more room in landfills and less greenhouse gas emissions.
