SLP Update

Now in our third year as a proud member, we completed gathering data from the City of Hamilton on our energy usage. Now that this is completed we will be able to establish our GHG baseline in 2020. We are working with our suppliers towards eliminating single use plastics and more recyclable items in our food service area and further environmentally friendly cleaning supplies for our housekeeping department. Our Green Team is moving forward with a developed plan for further solid waste management practices. We have also participated in the City’s waste management program business focus group, as we are especially interested in wet garbage management. Our completed public space LED program resulted in the replacement of over 2,500 florescent tube and halogen bulbs.

SBI UPDATE
As a second year member of SBI we have gathered pertinent data, are on board with the Verisae program and will be establishing our GHG baseline in 2019. A Green Team was developed and gained momentum with a focus on setting goals and objectives, reviewing corporate behaviour in areas of environmental impact, determining projects and growing the team. One of the first projects chosen was to complete a waste audit. In working with the Collaborative Experimental Learning Project of Mohawk College and SBI, environmental students will be joining us in their winter semester to complete this project. We are looking forward to advancing to the Gold level membership.
