"Our management team came to the unanimous decision that as a company we are no

longer going to sit back and watch our planet change without doing our part to help

improve it," explained Jim Corliss, president of the Tigard dealership. "Our partnership

with the Carbon Offset Company allows us to align our ideals and help make the earth a better place for generations to come."

fund the planting of tens of thousands of trees each year. "Ford and Lincoln have and

continue to make tremendous progress in building 'greener' vehicles," added Corliss.
