The ECO Apparel Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GHG) Footprint

GHG.jpg

As a Climate Smart business, we are committed to reducing our GHG footprint. In 2009 and again in 2010, we worked with Climate Smart (climatesmartbusiness.com) to measure the GHG footprint of our 1201 Franklin Street, Vancouver factory and showroom. 

To become Carbon Neutral, we’ve quantified our emissions, found ways to reduce our emissions and what we couldn’t reduce, we’ve offset. 2010 saw an 8% reduction in our overall footprint. Although there was an increase in some categories, we did realize a significant reduction by increasing the energy effeciency of heating and a reduction of natural gas consumption.

How we intend to lower our GHG Emissions:

  1. Reducing business air travel through teleconferencing and video conferencing.
  2. Moving towards electronic catalogues in order to reduce paper consumption.
  3. Developing an employee bus pass program.
