2011 Annual Habitat for Humanity Build

Once again, Enviro-Stewards shut its office for the day on August 24th to participate in its annual Habitat for Humanity Build in Kitchener, Ontario.

This year we were very pleased to again be joined by our friends from the Guelph Food Technology Centre (GFTC) and Toyota Boshoku.

Below are some pictures from the day.

Enviro-Stewards Helps Chudleigh’s Reduce Costs & Fulfill Walmart Supplier Sustainability Requirements

Enviro-Stewards recently completed a multimedia Pollution Prevention (P2) and Energy Efficiency (E2) Assessment of Chudleigh’s Ltd.’s production facility located in Milton, Ontario.  Chudleigh’s is a privately-owned commercial bakery that sells its products domestically and internationally.  The results of the assessment are now available through a public case study published by the Toronto Region Sustainability Program (TRSP), who co-funded the P2 portion of the project.  A PDF of the case study can be downloaded from the TRSP website here.

Enviro-Stewards was subsequently retained by Chudleigh’s to assist them in completing Walmart’s Supplier Sustainability Assessment, which involved calculating and reporting the facility’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP).

Highlights of the P2 & E2 assessment include:

  • $15,000/year in potential savings by diverting peels & juice from sanitary sewer
  • $23,000/year in potential savings by sending organic waste directly to compost or animal feed
  • $21,000/year saved by repairing malfunctioning microwave cooling water valve
  • Refer to case study for additional results
