Jan. 9, 2014, Ottawa, ON – Egg Farmers of Canada (EFC) is starting off the New Year highlighting a new environmental partnership with Bullfrog Power to reduce their emissions footprint.

This partnership is the latest action to be implemented under EFC’s Office Green Initiative that aims to reduce the company’s environmental impact. By choosing clean, pollution-free energy with Bullfrog Power for its Ottawa office, Egg Farmers of Canada is taking another step to support renewable generation sources while helping to create a cleaner world for the generations to come.

“Being environmentally responsible is a priority at Egg Farmers of Canada and we have a number of different initiatives that help us adapt our behaviours and habits at the office,” said Tim Lambert, Chief Executive Officer of EFC. “This new partnership gives us the opportunity to do more and show leadership in this area.”

From now on, Bullfrog Power’s generators will put 100 per cent green electricity and 100 per cent green natural gas onto the respective energy system to match the amount of electricity and natural gas the EFC office uses.

In the past years, Egg Farmers of Canada has committed through its Office Green Initiative to reduce the amount of paper used daily by opting for online documents instead. The organization also offers filtered tap water, battery recycling programs and uses environmentally friendly cleaning products, among other things.

“The Office Green Initiative goal is to increase environmental awareness within our office, and wherever possible we have taken steps to reduce our environmental impact,” added Tim Lambert.

Through this partnership, EFC is supporting the development of Canada’s renewable energy sector.
