Spec™ is committed to offsetting greenhouse gas emissions by planting 225 white pine trees each year with not-for-profit charity, Trees Canada. Since 2017, Spec has been taking part in the initiative to plant trees in forests across the country. Planting trees not only produces cleaner air; it also builds new wildlife habitats and creates cleaner soils and waterways.
Update: Planting Trees To Reduce CO2
Update: What a Difference LED Lights Make!
After successfully completing our LED Lighting retrofit project, Spec is happy to report that we're well on our way to reducing greenhouse gases. After comparing our electricity consumption post LED implementation (Dec/Jan/Feb) with the same period last year our total consumption is 14,333 kWh less! That equates to a reduction of approximately 11 metric tonnes of equivalent Carbon Dioxide (CO2e) over a 3 month period. This works out to a savings of approximately ½ a month’s total electricity consumption when extrapolated over a year. Happy Earth Month!
