Green-minded Mississauga businesses tackle GHG emissions

On October 4th, the first group of Mississauga businesses participating in the Mississauga Climate Leaders Program (MCLP) kicked off their (Greenhouse Gas) GHG Training Program. The program, delivered by the City of Mississauga through Enviro-Stewards, is a four-part education and skills development series that will help participating local businesses identify and advance cost-effective ways to improve their energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

In addition to the GHG Training Program, participating companies will also benefit from a GHG Emission Energy Efficiency Site Assessment delivered by the City in partnership with Partners in Project Green. As part of the site assessment, a team of technical experts will conduct a facility walk-through for each participating company and provide recommendations about energy efficiency and GHG emission reduction opportunities.

“Congratulations to these businesses on beginning their journey toward greater profitability and energy efficiency while helping us achieve our goal of becoming a net zero city,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “We all have a role to play in ensuring our actions don’t negatively impact our environment, and I commend these businesses for stepping up to do their part and acting as role models for others in the community.”

Participants in this year’s program represent a diverse range of businesses and include the following companies:

Arterra Wines Canada
Blachford Chemical Group
Hydro Extrusion North America
Lakeside Process Controls Ltd.
Magellan Aerospace Corporation
Petro-Canada Lubricants Inc.
Sofina Foods Inc.
Weston Forest.
