action is our middle name

Sustainability Allies

Our Sustainability Allies are a small group of businesses in our communities who believe in a mandate of environmental stewardship and social justice. They seek to promote the values and mission of the Ecology Action Centre while also making an annual contribution to our Centre.

We wish to recognize and thank these incredible partners for their support and commitment to making our province and world taste, smell, look and feel better.

Our Sustainability Ally program is limited to a group of ten businesses who are local or have local operations in our province. We take a relationship based approach with our Allies who are selected and evaluated by three criteria; fit, mechanism and value. Each ally generously makes an annual financial contribution to the Ecology Action Centre.
