Coelement

Coelement is a strategic and creative storytelling partner for purpose-driven organizations.

Why did Coelement sign the Climate Action Pledge?

The protection of our planet is an important and top priority for Coelement as we strive to consistently act on and promote climate protection. We signed the Pledge because we need climate action today. It’s organizations like BizforClimate that will help advocate for policies and procedures that will advance climate action solutions, creating a better, brighter future for future generations.

Why is it important that business owners speak up and show leadership on climate change?

Business owners play a crucial role in addressing climate change for several reasons:

  • Influence and Reach: They often have significant influence over their industry, customers, and supply chains, allowing them to drive wider adoption of sustainable practices.
  • Economic Impact: Businesses contribute significantly to carbon emissions, so their proactive steps can have a substantial impact on reducing overall emissions.
  • Innovation and Solutions: Businesses have the resources and capabilities to innovate and implement effective solutions for sustainability.
  • Responsibility and Reputation: Taking a stand on climate change can enhance a company’s reputation and align with the growing public expectation for corporate social responsibility.

Risk Management: Addressing climate change is essential for long-term business sustainability, as it mitigates risks associated with environmental changes and regulatory shifts.

Aurora Farms

Aurora Farm took root in 2004 at its current home on the last Red River Métis Seigneurial or River Lot in St. Norbert. Aurora Farm is based on permaculture, Indigenous and feminist approaches to the human connection to land as a model sustainable educational farm designed and operated by activist Louise May and a team of diverse and talented farm workers.  

Over the past 18 years, a number of our sustainability benchmarks have been achieved.  The 160 acre monoculture conventional agriculture land has been transformed to grass hay crop mimicking the prairie grassland ecosystem with over 200 naturalized species of plants, trees, bushes and medicinal herbs now found here.  Several acres of intensive food and medicinal herb production gardens are farmed without chemicals and with soil building practices.  Several breeding herds of heritage livestock including dairy goats, chickens, alpacas, horses including the critically endangered Ojibway or Lac La Croix ponies.   

Aurora Farm is a value-added agri-industrial manufacturer of goat milk soap and other natural care products with high community visibility and engagement through collaborations, traditional media, social media, workshops, tours and events.  

Many aspects of original design have been completed including wetland rehabilitation, fully solar powered, large-scale composting, complete rainwater collection system, 2 dugouts, land drainage and over 2,000 trees planted. 

Recently, Aurora Farm announced a new venture starting up an urban farm located in the heart of the City of Winnipeg focussed on food security and community engagement.  This farm will contain a year-round vertical hydroponic growing system for greens, vegetables and herbs, a commercial kitchen to allow for the expansion of food products and a centralized distribution centre for Aurora Farm products. 

As a Signatory of the BizforClimate Climate Action Pledge, Aurora Farm hopes to share success stories and encourage other businesses to take as many steps as possible to become more aligned with the health and beauty of our natural ecosystem.  Together, we can make a difference.

VersaPile Inc.

VersaPile is Manitoba owned and operated and Central Canada’s largest piling contractor specializing in high capacity helical piles for important infrastructure across Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario.

Helical piles are generally budget competitive with other piling solutions while installing faster without curing time, reducing the carbon footprint of materials by 90% or more, producing minimal ground disturbance and zero tailings, easily remediating sites by uninstalling, recycling or reusing piles, and using equipment that reduces mobilization while being quiet and without creation of damaging ground vibrations.

As an Indigenous owned and Certified Aboriginal Business, VersaPile takes great pride in leveraging the benefits of helical piles to help Indigenous clients build better homes and community buildings. 

Why did VersaPile sign the Climate Action Pledge?

Our mission at VersaPile is “to advance generational sustainability.” This is a loaded mission statement that is multifaceted but it boils down to adopting a generational thinking approach to business. We believe those companies that can find a way to conduct business without negatively impacting future generations are the companies that will sustain over time. By signing the Climate Action Pledge we are supporting a sensible and practical approach to climate change.

Why is it important that business owners speak up and show leadership on climate change?

Business owners should be concerned about climate change for the risks it poses and the opportunities it presents. Climate change is a global issue with wide-ranging impacts that requires agility, innovation and practical mindsets to drive solutions that have always come from entrepreneurs. By adopting sustainable practices within their own businesses and across industries, entrepreneurs can contribute to mitigating the impacts of climate change while gaining a competitive advantage.

What is something you hope BizForClimate can change through our collective efforts?

We hope that BizForClimate can rally a collective of entrepreneurs to bring a sensible and practical approach to climate change. We see a lot of “green” solutions which are unchecked such as supporting solar where the sun doesn’t often shine, wind in areas without much wind, electric vehicles (EVs) in cold climates, etc. Entrepreneurs ask the tough questions and challenge the status quo to bring about the practical solutions needed.

What’s a simple change that you have made for the environment and that other businesses could do?

VersaPile has started to calculate the carbon footprint of potential foundation solutions to its value-engineering process – we are now able to educate clients on the carbon impacts of foundation options. Furthermore, we have innovated to combine helical piles with geothermal technology which lowers the cost of traditional geothermal, making it more commercially viable and helping to greatly lower the carbon footprint related to heating and cooling buildings over their entire lifecycle.

While our products are sustainable and used to help our clients reduce their environmental footprint, we wanted to give back to a greater degree than just making our clients more sustainable. It’s important to act now to preserve the world for our children and future generations.

Why is it important for business owners to speak up and show leadership on climate change?

People look up to us as influencers, not just in the business community, but the communities in which our team members live. While government has a role to play in setting policy, business owners have a direct impact in their communities and the way in which their businesses operate and influence others. Collectively, we have a strong voice that can be used to help impact other decision makers’ mindsets.

What is something you hope BizforClimate can change through our collective efforts?

We envision BizforClimate having a greater influence on bureaucrats and policy / decision makers as well as influencing the use of cleantech and the development of more sustainable solutions. Through this influence, we see collectively helping all of us achieve our net-zero goals and achieving them faster.

What’s a simple change you’ve made for the environment that other businesses could do?

We have many important changes for the environment that we have implemented. Over 80% of Cypher Environmental packaging is recycled and recyclable. We have an electric car charging station at the office and encourage the use of low / zero emission vehicles. We have implanted simple steps at the office to reduce our carbon footprint, such as composting and recycling for our entire team. We only consider inputs into our products that are fully non-toxic and renewable / biodegradable, and we even have a US EPA Safer Choice Certification for our best-selling product.

ZenFri

ZenFri is an internationally recognized and award-winning interactive studio that leverages cutting-edge design and technology to push the boundaries of storytelling.

Working across an array of mediums, including Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), and gaming, we create lovingly crafted experiences for clients and consumers across Canada and around the world. 

At ZenFri, we pride ourselves in always pursuing endeavours we believe in, putting our conviction ahead of money since our founding 16 years ago. As a company founded by artists, we work every day to put something we’re passionate about into the world. 

We signed the Climate Action Pledge because we believe actions have consequences and that we can make a difference no matter how big or small we are. This is an area where “artist” and “business” truly agree – that individual action matters. It’s why we set out to build a company and thirst to create something of meaning. 

Everything we say, do, buy, and exist with is an action that has a tangible outcome to our life and environment. There’s a saying in the Zero Waste Community: “If you manufacture a product that will end up in a landfill in a couple of years, you aren’t manufacturing a product. You’re manufacturing garbage.”

Business owners need to consider their services long-term, past the original transaction. Where do your action’s efforts and resources go in 2 years? In 5 years? We have the amazing opportunity to make daily small decisions that are in favour of climate action.

At ZenFri, we’ve made many personal and company-wide changes to the way we conduct business and life in favour of a lower carbon and less resource intensive impact. We no longer attend international conferences, which significantly reduces air travel, and are fully remote, reducing the team’s commuting impact. Counter intuitively, this has led to greater growth both nationally and internationally.

This growth comes from a thoughtful product-first design approach, and a team focused on executing. A focus that is more intense and invigorated due to less commuting stress and travel time. Who can really concentrate on a product when they’re sitting in an airport in a different timezone, preparing for a booth or talk, or just figuring out how to get around in a new city? All that time goes into the product, and our products speak for themselves, bringing new work without travel expenditures or environmental impact.

Beyond these factors, we are increasingly alarmed with the lack of progress on climate change and are each looking for new ways to move our business in a greener direction, signing this pledge is just one of those ways.

Why did your company sign the Climate Action Pledge?

We’re honoured to join the many businesses that are advocating for a clean, zero-carbon economy. 

Payworks has long acknowledged the crucial role of the private sector in supporting the urgent preservation of our shared environment. We signed the Climate Action Pledge because we believe that it’s our responsibility to advocate for favourable climate action and to encourage other Canadian businesses to do the same. 

Why is it important for business owners to speak up and show leadership on climate change?

It’s important for the business community to come together to create action and to promote the economic benefits of making environmentally-friendly choices. We can amplify our voices and our collective message when we work together.  

What’s a simple change you’ve made for the environment that other businesses could do?

Our Green Perspective guides us in building and maintaining environmentally-friendly practices within our everyday office activities. We’ve shared some of the ways we’re reducing our environmental footprint and ideas for other employers to begin adopting green business practices in an article on our blog.

Mad Social Agency actively promotes climate action/environmentalism whether that be promoting it through social media or working with environmentally-friendly businesses. Spark operates remotely with staff working from their own homes so there is no need for unnecessary transportation and the related emissions.

Mad Social Agency signed the Climate Action Pledge because we believe favourable climate action should be a top priority for business.  Spreading this message around is of paramount importance to us. The primary driver of signing the Pledge is in the education of others.

Speaking up about Climate Change is important because business owners have more public power than they often appreciate. Business owners can start by reducing their own carbon footprint and then encouraging their employees and customers to do the same. Businesses can also invest in renewable energy sources such as solar and wind power. In addition, business owners can speak out about the need for action on climate change and support legislation that will help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. By taking these steps, business owners can show that they are committed to protecting the environment and help to ensure a sustainable future for all.

My hope is that BizforClimate can influence business owners and policymakers so we can address the climate crisis, build awareness around the issue, and ultimately, take action!

Botanical PaperWorks

Botanical PaperWorks is the world-leading supplier and manufacturer of eco-friendly seed paper products that grow plants that will benefit pollinators. No waste is left behind! 

Our mission is to spread beauty and reduce waste by helping both individuals and companies who want to make good environmental choices and celebrate important life events in an eco-conscious manner. In keeping with that mission, we recently expanded our eco-friendly offerings to include handmade soaps made with natural ingredients.

Eco-consciousness has always been a big part of the company’s core values. We proudly strive to empower consumers and businesses to make better choices for our planet by offering products that are sustainable alternatives to plastics and virgin papers. Leading by example is critical to our mission, so signing the Climate Action Pledge is a important step to show that we care and are committed to taking action. We see the climate crisis and we want to be a part of the community that stands together to fight it. 

When business owners walk the talk and lead by example, they can inspire employees, customers, peers, other business owners, and even policy-makers. They have the power (and a responsibility) to make changes and decisions that will have a big impact on our future. That’s one of the reasons we love that we get to work with businesses as they send their green messages. We get to see how they are making an impact with green products and initiatives and help them tell the world about it.

Change doesn’t happen overnight and none of us have all the answers. Businesses need to lean on each other, collaborate, and continuously learn how to do better. We hope that BizforClimate can foster those connections and be a resource for businesses.

One action we’ve already taken is to work with Terracycle to collect and recycle used masks at our facility. Covid has had a huge negative impact on the environment and every effort we can make to reduce waste matters. The program is easy to take part in and will help divert thousands of masks from the landfill. The recycled material is processed and used to manufacture a variety of new products including outdoor furniture, plastic shipping pallets, outdoor decking, and more.
