Our Sustainability Efforts

To align with the forum theme of sustainability, we aim to minimize the environmental impact of our event in a number of ways:

  • Venue Practices -

    • Chestnut Conference Centre serves of 60% of their meals using locally produced ingredients.

    • UofT (including Chestnut) is a bottled water free zone. Complementary jugs of ice water are available.

    • All organic waste is composted.

  • Minimize Paper Use/Printing - When possible, Forum material will be presented in a digital format and we will be using plantable seed paper for name badges.

  • Reduce Waste - As a means to minimize waste by foregoing the option of providing conference bags (plastic or otherwise) and encourage attendees to bring their own.

  • Sustainability Partners - We are actively looking for sponsors from private and public organizations that share a similar commitment, and endorse the sustainability measures we are taking for this year’s Forums.

  • Offset Emission - NC Forum is bullfrogpowered with 100% green electricity. This means that Bullfrog Power’s generators put 100% green power into the grid to match the amount of conventional electricity the event uses, displacing energy from polluting sources. Across Canada, Bullfrog’s green electricity comes from a blend of wind and low-impact hydro power sourced from new Canadian renewable energy facilities. For more information on Bullfrog’s green energy, visit www.bullfrogpower.com.
