Our carbon footprint

Carbon goals and inventory

Our net carbon emissions in 2015 were 55% below our 2010 emission levels. Changes to provincial electricity emission factors, for instance, the positive impact associated with the phasing out of coal in Ontario, lowered our total emissions. Internal reductions were realized through space consolidation initiatives, a smaller and more efficient fleet, and reductions in vehicle business travel. We further lowered our net emissions through the purchase of renewable energy certificates from Bullfrog Power for select corporate offices, as part of a three-year agreement initiated in 2014. We continue to be one of Bullfrog’s largest corporate clients.
