Carleton Refrigeration, Heating and Air Conditioning offsets their carbon footprint by planting hundreds of trees

May 30, 2017 by

IMG_0052As part of the continuing commitment to support the community and improve its already environmentally friendly operations, Carleton Refrigeration, Heating and Air Conditioning Inc. is planting 1,302 native-Canadian trees in Ottawa, as the company becomes the newest member of the Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation’s (RVCF) Carbon Neutral Program.

Carleton Refrigeration, Heating and Air Conditioning is working with RVCF to calculate the amount of carbon emissions they produce (in tonnes of carbon dioxide) and then convert that into the number of trees to be planted to offset (or absorb) the carbon the company produces in their day-to-day operations.

A release from the foundation says, each of the company's trees trees is a little environmental cleaning station producing better air, cleaner water, more wildlife habitat, noise and wind buffers, increased forest cover. Research shows that lives are improved by trees, hospital recovery times are shortened and other common problems, such as stress and attention deficit disorder, become more manageable when we are in regular contact with trees and green spaces.

Carleton Refrigeration, Heating and Air Conditioning joins a number of local companies doing their part to curb carbon emissions and create cleaner air for their neighbours.

Carleton Refrigeration, Heating and Air Conditioning Ltd. is a locally owned and operated family business since 1973. Their team of dedicated professionals pride themselves on their award-winning commitment to excellence in customer service.
