APBOT wins Environmental Achievement Award

Posted 7 years ago on · Permalink

AJAX/PICKERING, May 15, 2015 – The Ajax-Pickering Board of Trade (APBOT) was honoured with the Irene Kock Education/Communication Award at last night’s 2015 DEAC Environmental Achievement Awards. The Durham Environmental  Advisory Committee (DEAC) is an initiative of the Region of Durham and its annual  awards program honours individual  and collective  efforts to promote,  preserve, and enhance Durham’s environment. The Irene Kock Education/Communication Award recognizes effective communication, sharing knowledge, or exhibiting leadership in helping others learn about the environment.

“We are thrilled that our Eco Business Program and the efforts of our Eco Business Advisory Committee have been recognized with this award,” said 2015 President Denise Jones, CPA, CA of Collins Barrow Durham.

APBOT’s Eco Business Program encourages local businesses to adopt more sustainable business practices in the areas of waste, water and energy. APBOT members can complete any or all of three Eco Business checklists to help guide them do so.

“We are pleased that more and more businesses are recognizing that sustainability and profitability aren’t incompatible,” said Eco Business Advisory Committee Chair Don Terry, “In fact, many of the recommendations on our checklists encourage efficient use of resources and that can help a business’s bottom line.”
