Climate SmartHelijet is pleased to announce its successful completion of the Climate Smart training and certification program, adding to Helijet’s well-established and ongoing commitment to the environment.

This award-winning greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions program was established in 2009 by Climate Smart Businesses Inc. (Climate Smart), a Radicle Group Company.

Vancouver Airport Authority (YVR) has partnered with Climate Smart to engage YVR stakeholder businesses like Helijet to reduce their energy, fuel and potable water consumption, as well as waste, associated carbon emissions and operating costs.

The Climate Smart program enables companies of all sizes and industries to measure and reduce their GHG emissions and make informed decisions as they invest in efficiencies.

“Over the past years, Helijet has been working to develop and catalogue its sources of emissions while developing partnerships and initiatives on how we all can reduce our footprint on the environment. We are very pleased to now have access to Climate Smart’s training, tools and ongoing support towards our entire team’s commitment to the environment,” stated Danny Sitnam, Helijet President & CEO. “Alongside our sustainable work with the Pacific Salmon Foundation, Coastal First Nations-Great Bear Forest Carbon Project and now Climate Smart, we are very proud in doing our small part to ensure a sustainable future.”

In completing this program, Helijet joins other industry-leaders in meeting emissions reduction objectives that benefit the environment. To date, Climate Smart has helped more than 1000 companies reach an average of 24 per cent reduction in their GHG emissions.

“Companies that complete the Climate Smart training program are joining businesses pioneering a new path forward, making environmental stewardship and financial prosperity two sides of the same coin,” says Elizabeth Sheehan, President of Climate Smart. “Climate Smart businesses are among global industry leaders who have taken steps toward creating sustainable initiatives for the long-term success of their company, showing they have a plan in place to make a positive impact for the environment for generations to come.”
