As a Climate Smart certified business, we are continuing our commitment to sustainability and environmental stewardship.
This year, we completed our second greenhouse gas inventory with Climate Smart and recorded a 6% emission reduction from the baseline.
This included an impressive 66% reduction in natural gas use, a 13% reduction in electricity use, and a 51% reduction in emissions associated with office paper use.
The GHG emissions inventory is conducted according to the Greenhouse Gas Protocol Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard, (“the GHG Protocol”).
The GHG Protocol is an internationally recognised standard published by the World Resources Institute and the World Business Council on Sustainable Development.
Our list of reduction strategies include ongoing fleet replacement with more fuel-efficient vehicles, implementation of route optimization software, heating system upgrades, lighting retrofits, paperless document management, and more.
Moving forward, we are working to further reduce our emissions by continuing to focus on strategies aimed at transportation, heating, electricity, garbage, and paper consumption.
