GHG Reduction Target
Develop an initiative to measure and reduce business travel.
Set a GHG reduction target of 25% over ten years
Reduced emissions 50% since 2011: Quarry attributed their success to an LED retrofit, along with “Curb Our Carbon Workdays” where staff were encouraged to to work remote, allowing for the 27000 sq. ft. of office space to be put into an unoccupied state. In 2019 this initiative took a total of 185,000 km worth of commuting vehicles emissions off the road and has improved employee productivity while transforming the culture of the company for the better
GHG Baseline & set reduction goal: Entered their data in the Carbon Accounting Tool and calculated a baseline for our move to pledging partner. We also worked with Matthew Day to set a reduction target of 25% over 10 years.
HVAC: A formal reconditioning of the HVAC system was done in 2013, and with that Quarry has also reduced individual (employee) control over the thermostats in the building.
Window Film: Added solar window film which helps to reduce their cooling costs in the summer.
