Reducing our Emissions at the Source
We made the commitment to go beyond our own operations and embark on the journey to green our supply chain.
This year marks a major milestone for our company as we made the commitment go beyond our own operations and embark on the journey to green our supply chain. After a thorough assessment of our carbon emissions across our American and Canadian facilities - corporate offices and manufacturing plants – we decided to start by converting our coal-powered facilities to green electricity.
Through a partnership with Bullfrog Power, an ECOLOGO™ certified renewable energy provider, our coal-powered facility in Regina now operates on wind, solar and low impact hydro power. This means that there is a zero carbon impact on the environment from our electricity consumption in Canada. Our goal during the next couple of years is to convert all our facilities and become 100 percent powered by local renewable energy across all our operations in North America.
Our initial reduction of 50 tons of annual CO2e emissions is the same amount of carbon sequestered by more than 41 acres of forests in one year.
