SUSTAINABILITY MANIFESTO: DECADE OF 2020
It's the dawn of a new decade. The decade of 2020 is the #DecadeOfAction for a better world. As a leading business in the green building industry for over three decades, we consider ourselves responsible for the environmental and social consequences of our actions. That's why Belnor Engineering has taken it's green building ambitions even further by officially launching a Sustainability Manifesto 2020, outlining sustainability goals and actions for the decade to come.
Going Local: Reduce Emissions & Support Economy
As of 2020, Belnor Engineering has officially made a firm commitment to go local. Belnor Engineering will now source predominantly from local Canadian suppliers, helping to support existing jobs and creating new ones locally, while boosting the Canadian economy and reducing carbon emissions simultaneously as a result of relatively reduced shipping distance.
Sustainable Shipping Methods: Reduce Emissions & Shrink Carbon Footprint
As of 2020, Belnor Engineering has officially made a firm commitment to increase engagement in sustainable shipping methods. When both importing and exporting, Belnor Engineering will increase engagement in low-emitting sustainable shipping practices, such as by ground and by water, reducing carbon emissions by refraining from high-emitting shipping methods, such as by air. Belnor Engineering will also work predominantly with suppliers that offer sustainable shipping options.
Reforesting The Earth: Reduce Emissions, Shrink Carbon Footprint, Increase Environmental Sustainability & Improve Human Health
As of 2020, Belnor Engineering has officially made a firm commitment to reforest the Earth. Belnor Engineering will work with international partners to help replenish forests around the world, increasing both environmental sustainability to support local livelihoods and human health, and the planet’s resistance to human-induced climate change, respectively. Belnor Engineering will continue it’s #BE100TreesOfTheMonth campaign, planting 100 trees every month in various high-risk deforested regions of the world to raise awareness of the negative global impacts and inspire global action while offsetting Belnor Engineering’s own carbon emissions, shrinking Belnor Engineering’s carbon footprint.
Even More Green Building Products: Increase Availability Of & Accessibility To Sustainable Building Products & Solutions
As of 2020, Belnor Engineering has officially made a firm commitment to increase the number of sustainable, green building products and solutions available in both Canadian and international markets. Although already being active leaders in the green building industry for three decades, Belnor Engineering will both develop and procure even more groundbreaking sustainable materials, products, and solutions in addition to our already existing renewable energy arm.
More LEED- & WELL-Certified Buildings: Promote Sustainable Materials & Products, Promote Sustainable Practices In Architecture & Construction, Increase Environmental Sustainability & Improve Human Health
As of 2020, Belnor Engineering has officially made a firm commitment to increase the number of LEED- and WELL-Certified buildings around the world. As highly active green building leaders, Belnor Engineering will more vigorously promote the use of sustainable materials, products, and solutions that will help more buildings globally achieve internationally recognized green building certifications faster. Belnor Engineering will also help increase the number of buildings certified internationally by providing technical guidance promoting both the use of sustainable materials and products in green building, and sustainable design and practices in architecture and construction, respectively.
