Shrinking your energy footprint helps to make our planet more sustainable.

We’re all seeing the effects of climate change. Sea ice is shrinking; seasons are shifting; droughts, wildfires and floods are on the rise. As WWF-Canada’s Living Planet Report reveals, that’s bad news for humans and wildlife alike. We need to act now to prevent the worst effects of a warming planet.

And the corporate sector can make a big difference. Businesses and institutions produce more than a third of Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions. By uncovering energy efficiencies, switching to renewable alternatives and even just organizing energy efficiency awareness activities for employees, you can help reduce the greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change.
