Our team is very proud to now be Carbon Neutral.
We have planted 1,302 young, vigorous, native-Canadian trees as the newest participant in Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation’s (RVCF) Carbon Neutral Program.
Carleton Refrigeration, Heating and Air Conditioning Ltd. is working with RVCF to calculate the amount of carbon emissions we produce (in tonnes of carbon dioxide) and then convert that into the number of trees to be planted to offset (or absorb) the carbon the company produces in our day-to-day operations.
Each of Carleton Refrigeration, Heating and Air Conditioning’s trees is a little environmental cleaning station producing better air, cleaner water, more wildlife habitat, noise and wind buffers, increased forest cover. Research shows that lives are improved by trees, hospital recovery times are shortened and other common problems, such as stress and attention deficit disorder, become more manageable when we are in regular contact with trees and green spaces.
