Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) June 04, 2015
For several years, BC Comfort has made business improvements to reduce their environmental impact and meet sustainability goals. Working with Climate Smart, the company has now achieved a six percent reduction in carbon emissions from the baseline and natural gas emissions were reduced from 32 to 11 tons of CO2e.
A number of changes were implemented company-wide to lower carbon emissions including the replacement of conventional full size service vans with smaller, more fuel-efficient 4 cylinder engine vehicles.
In addition, the company reduced its natural gas usage, installed new insulated overhead doors for warehouses and fitted new energy efficient lighting across facilities. The company also made a commitment to eliminate unnecessary paper and energy use in the office, implement a comprehensive recycling plan, and introduce an electronic reporting system for service technicians and customer billing.
“It’s not only about sustainability,” said Robert Noel, President of BC Comfort. “It’s about doing what’s right both for the company and for our customers. We’re taking steps to reduce waste and improve our operational efficiency.”
The Climate Smart Program helps both small and mid-sized businesses to evaluate carbon emissions and prepare strategies for emission reductions. BC Comfort’s emissions achievements were the direct result of the company actively working together with Climate Smart to reduce their environmental footprint.
