Happy Holidays Pledge Members!


2016 Sustainability Highlights!

Before year end we would love to hear from our sustainable business community, meaning you!

It’s that time of year where we ask you to share your single most important sustainable achievement for 2016! Maybe it’s a waste reduction milestone, or your employees have achieved new heights of fitness (and reduced GHG’s) by cycling to work.

Share one milestone, write it on a piece of paper, take a picture and tweet BurnabyBOT with #sustainableburnaby or email me your 2016 milestone at tessa@bbot.ca

Collaborating: We are looking forward next year to working closely with Vancity on developing programming and opportunities for Burnaby businesses to become more sustainable. Read more here.
