AWARDS AND RECOGNITION
CLEAN AND GREEN AWARD NOMINATION
We are very proud to be nominated for the Clean and Green Award by the Mississauga Board of Trade. This award recognizes a large or small Mississauga based business that made a significant long-term commitment to the environment and their corporate social responsibility exceed normal practices. Managing sustainability and our carbon impact is at the core of our business and we strive to have a broader impact on our community.
CLIMATE SMART 2020
As a first step in building our green business plan, we participated in the Climate Smart Program 2018 , aimed at increasing resiliency and unlocking climate action among Ontario’s businesses. We introduced a number of operational and behavioral changes to reduce energy consumption and reduce our carbon footprint overtime.
REDUCTION STRATEGIES & INITIATIVES
Tonnes CO2e Per Year

LED LIGHTING RETROFITS
We updated our main facility at Meadowpine with a full LED lighting installation, that dramatically reduced our energy consumption and our costs. We plan on updating all our offices with LED lighting in the last quarter of 2019
THE GREEN TEAM
We created green teams at our four facilities, who meetup every month to discuss electricity, heating and waste consumption over the month. The teams also organize campaigns to engage employees in the company’s sustainability initiatives
Being climate smart lines up with our Company values and just makes sense to do our part. The future of our planet is counting on us to show other organizations it can be done.
