WCLZ: The First Carbon Neutral Radio Station in the U.S.
Since 2008, WCLZ and REVERB have worked together to calculate and neutralize the station’s carbon footprint.
2,700+ TONNES OF CO2 ELIMINATED
EQUIVALENT OF REMOVING 600+ CARS FROM THE ROAD FOR A YEAR
14 PROJECTS SUPPORTED
WITHIN THE STATION’S REGION
ADDRESSING CARBON EMISSIONS
Every year since 2008, REVERB & WCLZ have calculated the carbon footprint of the radio station including
- Signal Transmission
- Office & Studio Lights
- Heating & Cooling
- Station Vehicles
- Staff Commutes
- Production of promotional materials
"We’re proud to be among the first carbon neutral radio stations in the country. It’s important to us as a station to limit our impact on the planet, while also proudly sharing our commitment to the environment with our listeners. We aim to choose projects local to our community to ensure the most impact in our backyard.”
RESULTS FOR PEOPLE & THE PLANET
Since 2008, WCLZ has supported 14 climate change fighting projects, neutralizing more than 2,700 tonnes of CO2!
Reducing that much carbon is like removing 602 cars from the road or neutralizing the energy-related emissions from 302 households for one year!
