Conestoga Meats & Enviro-Stewards Share Sustainable Waterloo Region Partnership Award
An Award-Winning Partnership
At the conclusion of Sustainable Waterloo Region’s 10th annual evening of recognition, Conestoga Meats & Enviro-Stewards were honoured to share 2018’s Best Partnership award. Their partnership commenced in 2012 when Enviro-Stewards worked with Conestoga Meats’ team to identify practical water & energy conservation opportunities. Conestoga Meats subsequently implemented many of the opportunities.
2018 Best Partnership Award
In 2018, Conestoga Meats & Enviro-Stewards partnered again on a food loss prevention assessment. Enviro-Stewards staff together with Conestoga Meats’ green team identified opportunities to save 50,000 kg/yr of food. This is equivalent to 19,489 meals/yr of food and 400 tonnes per year of embedded greenhouse gases (GHG). Throughout the supply chain, these opportunities will save the equivalent of 300,000 m3/yr of water (which is equivalent to more water than half of the water that the entire meat packing facility presently consumes).
The partnership was featured at the 2.5 minute mark of a video prepared by Sustainable Waterloo Region and a case study prepared by Provision Coalition.
