Teva Takes Action Against Climate Change
Teva Footwear offsets the greenhouse gas emissions resulting from their vehicular fleet

Goleta, CA (July 11, 2006) - – Leading outdoor footwear brand Teva (a division of Deckers Outdoor Corporation NASDAQ: DECK), in an effort to reduce the company's impact on the climate change, today announced that it has offset the greenhouse gas emissions produced from it's six vehicle fleet in 2006.

DrivingGreen supports greenhouse gas emission reduction projects managed by AgCert (LSE: AGC, a global GHG emission reduction company) and offers GHG reductions (offsets) to individuals and companies that want to neutralize the impact their driving has on climate change. Through DrivingGreen.com, Teva has retired sixty metric tons of greenhouse gas (GHG) emission.

“We felt that we should take responsibility for the greenhouse gases that we release into the atmosphere as a result of Teva vehicles,” said Jaime Eschette, Teva Spokesperson. “Ultimately, we hope our effort to battle global warming will encourage others to get involved and take action as well.”

“Teva Footwear is setting a great example for all individuals and companies to follow in offsetting the GHG emissions they are responsible for due to their vehicles.” said Dan Linsky, Director of DrivingGreen, “DrivingGreen is excited to partner with TEVA Footwear to provide a simple way for Teva to voluntarily make their fleet greenhouse gas neutral.”

About DrivingGreen
DrivingGreen is a consumer oriented service of AgCert (LSE: AGC). DrivingGreen offers consumers and organizations the ability to affordably offset their vehicular greenhouse gas emissions in order to help the environment, and battle global warming.
Consumers that offset their emissions receive a T-shirt, license plate holders and a car decal to display their commitment to the environment. But most importantly, the consumer receives a serialized certificate. The serial number can be used to trace the offsets to the project that reduced the greenhouse gas emissions.
