CALGARY, AB / ACCESSWIRE / May 29, 2024 / Karbon-X (OTC PINK:KARX), a leading provider of carbon offset solutions, is proud to announce its partnership with the Banff Marathon to offset the environmental impact of the event. Through this collaboration, Karbon-X will neutralize the carbon footprint of the Banff Marathon, ensuring a more sustainable and eco-friendlier race.

The Banff Marathon, known for its breathtaking scenery and challenging courses, attracts participants from around the globe. Recognizing the importance of environmental responsibility, event organizers enlisted the expertise of Brightspot, a sustainability consulting firm, to measure the environmental footprint of the marathon.

Brightspot climate conducted a comprehensive assessment of the event, analyzing factors such as transportation, energy consumption, and waste generation. The findings highlighted the significant carbon emissions associated with hosting such a large-scale event in a pristine natural environment like Banff National Park.

To mitigate these emissions, the Banff Marathon turned to Karbon-X for a solution. Leveraging its extensive portfolio of verified carbon offset projects, Karbon-X used the data collected by Brightspot Climate and provided 956 VERRA carbon credits to offset it. These offsets represent investments in projects that reduce or remove greenhouse gas emissions, such as renewable energy generation or cookstove initiatives in the developing world.

“We are thrilled to partner with the Banff Marathon to support their sustainability goals,” said Chad Clovis, CEO of Karbon-X. “By offsetting the environmental impact of the event with verified carbon offsets, we are taking proactive steps to protect the pristine beauty of Banff National Park and contribute to global climate action.”

The partnership between Karbon-X and the Banff Marathon reflects a growing trend in the event industry towards sustainability and environmental stewardship. As more organizations prioritize eco-friendly practices, carbon offsetting has emerged as a practical and effective strategy for reducing environmental impact and promoting a more sustainable future.

“We are committed to minimizing our environmental footprint and the preservation of Banff National Park,” said Paul Regensburg, Event Director of the Banff Marathon. “Partnering with Karbon-X to offset our carbon emissions is a crucial step towards achieving our sustainability objectives and setting a positive example for other events around the world.”
