Eclipse Awards embraces green energy and green fuels!
by Toby Barazzuol on Tuesday Sep 20, 2016
This week we are proud to be one of 4 companies in BC, and only 14 companies in Canada, to commit to Bullfrog Power's new green fuel alternative! With Bullfrog's green fuel program, we now offset 100% of our ground shipping with biodiesel and continue our ongoing efforts to minimize the impacts of our operations.
In our quest to reduce our environmental footprint over the past decade, we have now completed Climate Smart certification 6 times! Each time we discover new opportunities, though it becomes increasingly challenging to achieve gains. We started purchasing BC Hydro's green power certificates in 2005. Then in 2009 we committed to 100% green electricity (wind energy!) via Bullfrogpower. In 2011 we added 100% green natural gas. This year, we add green fuel to the mix. Our goal is always to minimize our emissions as much as possible, then offset the remaining amount. With the help of Offsetters and Brinkman Climate we became the world’s first carbon neutral awards company.
Our philosophy and goal is to use as few resources as possible to create as much value as possible. Our clients can purchase from us, knowing that we have minimized the impact of their purchase as much as possible. We salute other businesses who are on the same path, and we thank our clients who appreciate and value our environmental commitments!
To learn more about Bullfrog Power’s suite of green energy options, read on:
Bullfrog Power’s producers put renewable electricity and green natural gas onto the grid and pipeline to match the amount of conventional electricity and natural gas used by our office and warehouse. Across Canada, Bullfrog’s green electricity comes from a blend of wind and low-impact hydro power sourced from new Canadian renewable energy facilities. Bullfrog’s green natural gas is sourced from a unique methane-capture project situated on one of Canada’s landfill sites. Through innovative technology, biogas is captured, cleaned up, and injected onto the national natural gas pipeline.
Bullfrog also ensures green fuel is injected into the Canadian fuel system to match the amount of conventional fuel our ground shipping uses, displacing conventional fossil fuel litre-for-litre. Bullfrog’s green fuel is an earth-friendly, renewable alternative to fossil fuel. Bullfrog sources from biodiesel producers that repurpose waste streams from food and feed manufacturing, and used cooking oils from restaurants and kitchen facilities.
