The nation's largest carbon-neutral travel program, is the environmental organization Bonneville Environmental Foundation

The Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF) was founded in 1998 to support watershed restoration programs and develop new sources of renewable energy. Funding for these efforts has been provided in a way that would be called unusual for most foundations. BEF, a non-profit organization, markets green power products to public utilities, businesses, government agencies and individuals.

What began as a partnership with the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) has expanded to include other suppliers and markets. Initially, BEF facilitated the environmental endorsement of several renewable energy resources and then helped market this green power, called Environmentally Preferred Power (EPP), to public utilities.

The Bonneville Environmental Foundation is dedicated to restoring watershed ecosystems throughout the Pacific Northwest. Since 1999, BEF has committed over $1.6 million to support community-based initiatives that improve water quality, restore habitat, and bolster native salmon and trout populations.

During 2000, BEF developed its Green Tags product, in recognition of the demand for renewable energy in places where utilities do not offer that choice. Green Tags represent the environmental benefits that occur when clean, new renewable energy is substituted for power that is produced by burning fossil fuel. BEF has been the pioneer in offering this choice to customers worldwide. Revenues that are generated selling Green Tags are reinvested in new forms of renewable energy.
