Beautiful Upper Peninsula forest used to offset carbon created from your business use of natural gas

Use The Power Of Michigan Forests to Keep Your Business Green

The MI Clean Air program makes meeting sustainability goals easy. For a flexible monthly fee, your business can offset a portion (or all) of your average annual emissions.

The best part? You don’t have to make any changes to your business. We support Michigan-based carbon reduction projects on your behalf.


How It Works


MI Clean Air uses carbon offsets to counteract the emissions from your business.

CO2 icon business

When your business uses natural gas, it produces carbon that makes its way into the atmosphere. This carbon adds to the destructive effect of global warming.

co2 forest icon

MI Clean Air protects forests planned for harvest. These forests absorb carbon, offsetting what your business produces and reducing its negative impact.


Cost and Impact


Your monthly cost will be calculated based on a percentage of your actual natural gas usage.

*Actual amounts may vary based on use.

The program is open to all natural gas and combo business customers.
