“Ever since becoming a father, I have looked differently at ways I can influence future generations and become a more sustainable human. The Climate Smart Program gives companies a fantastic opportunity to take those personal passions and apply them in a working operation. Utilizing this experience and applying our own ideas, we have taken our baseline inventory of our carbon footprint and looked at ways in which we can make a real difference. Everyone has a responsibility for the future of our planet, and this program is a step in the right direction for future generations.” Manager, Dexterra
“Through Climate Smart, we were able to identify our greatest opportunities to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions while also cutting back on our expenses. Hearing about what other companies are doing within our industry; connecting us with resources, such as utility incentives and rebates; and highlighting new technologies are just some of the ways Climate Smart helped us diagnose and document our emission reductions of 24% while growing our business.” Environmental Coordinator, Fraser River Pile & Dredge
“At the Listel Hotel we first tackled our greenhouse gas emissions in 2008 by installing solar hot water panels and a heat exchange system to dramatically reduce the amount of natural gas needed to heat domestic water. With successful carbon- and cost-cutting initiative under our belts, we’ve continued to find ways to reduce our environmental impact. Most recently, we renovated our hotel restaurant to become a model for energy efficiency and achieving zero waste to landfill.” General Manager, The Listel Hotel
