Corporate Commitment to Sustainability

The company has undertaken a large number of sustainable development “capacity building” assignments for federal, provincial and municipal governments in Canada and over 36 developing countries, and the corporate principal is a recognized leader in sustainable development law/policy appointed to United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) Roster of Experts, and a climate change specialist appointed to the International Roster of Experts by the Climate Investment Funds (CIF).  The company has been advising Environment Canada and the Provincial Government of Nova Scotia, primarily the Department of Environment (including the Minister and senior team) on, amongst other matters, sustainable development practices relating to management of the environment, managing climate change impacts, and reducing reliance on petroleum energy. The company integrates sustainable development principles into all projects which it manages.  This approach includes taking a broad view of each project mandate and determining where activities can be undertaken to reduce the overall environmental footprint/impact associated with a project.

As part of its commitment to sound environmental management and sustainable development practices the company has established waste reduction and energy conservation measures at its corporate offices, and on an ongoing basis, provides training to Nova Scotia companies in this area. The Company uses 100% post-consumer recycled paper in-house and uses eco-minded printers who offer vegetable based inks and recycled paper for our business needs.  The Company uses the most up to date low energy technology for its office equipment.  The company’s office waste is sorted and recycled at source.  All office lighting is low energy and office furnishings are made from natural organic material and procured through local suppliers.  The company uses suppliers who are committed to sustainable practices including a web design studio which is 100% powered by green electricity.  The company hosts its website on a green web server powered by 100% renewable energy. 

The Company philosophy is to outsource services through subcontracting thereby reducing office space needs and associated environmental footprint.  The Company is committed to partnering with local expertise on consulting projects and is actively pursuing renewable energy projects within the local community to reduce reliance on fossil fuel sources for local office energy needs.
