Hoʻāla Offset Emissions Program

Hoʻāla is the exclusive offset emissions program brought to you by Island Energy Services. Only at Island Energy Services Texaco branded stations in Hawai‘i can you participate in a drive to Hoʻāla, or “rise up and make new.”

Through a partnership with GreenPrint, an environmental technology company, our customers’ vehicle emissions are calculated monthly using fuel volume data and factors from the EPA, EIA, and other environmental agencies. GreenPrint then invests proportionally in certified carbon reduction projects to offset our customers' vehicle emissions by up to 30%. GreenPrint’s data sources and calculations are attested to on a yearly basis by EY.

Carbon Offsets and Projects

A certified carbon offset is a certificate representing the reduction, destruction or capture of one metric ton of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Certified carbon offsets are produced by certified carbon reduction projects. These projects must follow strict guidelines established by internationally recognized standards in order to generate certified carbon offsets.
