As part of our continuing commitment to support the community and improve our already environmentally friendly operations, Carleton Refrigeration, Heating and Air Conditioning Inc. has planted over 1,300 young, vigorous, native-Canadian trees in this region. We are the newest participant in Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation’s (RVCF) Carbon Neutral Program.
We are working with RVCF to calculate the amount of carbon emissions produced (in tonnes of carbon dioxide) and then convert that into the number of trees to be planted to offset (or absorb) the carbon produced in our day-to-day operations.
Each of our 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.
We join a number of distinguished companies, and many community and family events around town taking a bite out of carbon emissions and creating cleaner air for the residents of this area.
