Statements is committed to sustainable business practices. Our commitment isn’t a political one, it’s just old fashioned good sense. We believe that our actions today should not hurt the ability of our children and our children’s children to meet their own needs.

As a part of that commitment, we have purchased renewable energy credits to mitigate the impact of fossil fuels (which don’t replenish). This year, our purchases of credits come from the Upper Rock Island gas-to-energy project. Upper Rock Island captures the methane gases produced by a landfill and turn it into energy to power the homes and businesses in the area. What a great idea! And we are glad to participate to ensure that our great grandkids have the same opportunities that we have. Here’s a great illustration showing how gas-to-energy works:
