It’s being called the largest eco-business zone in North America. Partners in Project Green is setting out to transform the 12,000 hectares of industrial and commercial land area surrounding Toronto’s Pearson International Airport, and make it into a sustainable eco-industrial park called the Pearson Eco-Business Zone. And with our Toronto brewery located squarely in the Zone, Molson is proud to partner in Project Green, along with The Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA), the Greater Toronto Airport Authority (GTAA), local businesses and municipalities to introduce a wide range of environmental improvements, such as reducing energy and water consumption, making better use of organic waste, and retrofitting buildings to make them more energy efficient.
Project Green Takes Off in Style Project Green had a smooth takeoff at Toronto Pearson’s Infield Terminal on October 9. I along with Doug Dittburner, Ferg Devins and Carole Berry represented Molson and joined representatives from TRCA, GTAA, government, and over 250 businesses at the official launch ceremony of Partners in Project Green. Those on hand to offer support included the Ontario Minister of the Environment, John Gerretsen, who recently visited our Toronto brewery and praised Molson’s leadership in environmental initiatives, as well as Ontario Minister of Natural Resources, Donna Cansfield were amongst the invited speakers for that event.
I must say that I am proud to see that Molson is playing its part in this collective effort which will drive significant environmental improvements to the area. What’s more, we’re anticipating that our partnership in Project Green will result in further improvements to Molson’s financial and environmental performance as well as creating value for our community. Cheers to all involved in Partners in Project Green!
