We’re excited to be entering our second year of being a certified ClimateSmart business. With Canada’s 1.2+ million small- and medium-sized businesses having direct control over roughly 200 million tonnes of carbon pollution – the same amount produced each year by every car, truck, train, plane, and ship in the country – we were motivated to do better and control what we could to decrease our impact. Having recently renewed our certification for 2018, I thought I would share some of our learnings and findings now that we have year over year data to sift through, as opposed to last year when we established our baseline.
It’s easy to make changes at home when it comes to helping out the environment, but it’s a little different at the office. I think that this is because when you’re at home, you can track how much you spend on the water bill, heat or hydro. At the office it’s a bit different since you normally don’t see the monthly expenses when they come it, so it may be a bit more difficult to track your useage from month to month.
