We inspire positive change and achievements in people and communities across Canada & beyond
Our commitment to the environment doesn’t stop at the products we create; it extends to our everyday decision making and the operations of our enterprise. Our passion is to solve problems driving us to create solutions and “out-of-the-box” initiatives that advance global sustainability best practices.
Our Impact On Our Community
We believe that working together will improve people’s lives and preserve the planet that supports a low carbon built environment and communities. This requires transparency and a commitment to a business driven sustainability model. By volunteering on local initiatives we are enabling change that provides clear results that are measured.
Impact On The Environment
EcoSpex is currently working towards the vigorous assessment to meet B Corp Certification. Corporations are a new kind of business that balances purpose and profit. They are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions on their workers, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment. This is a community of leaders, driving a global movement of people using business as a force for good.
New this year, we will show how EcoSpex business contributes to the implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
EcoSpex aligns to the SDGs goals to include:
SDG 7: Affordable and Clean Energy
SDG 9: Industry, Innovation & Infrastructure
SDG 11: Sustainable Cities & Communities
SDG 13: Climate Action
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
Our Impact To Support Women-Owned Businesses
Support Woman Owned Businesses
EcoSpex Goal for 2021 is to be WBENC certified. The Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) is the largest certifier of women-owned businesses in the U.S. and a leading advocate for women business owners and entrepreneurs. Certifying women owned businesses is the foundation of WBENC's mission, along with connecting WBENC-Certified Women's Business Enterprises (WBEs) with WBENC's Corporate Members to facilitate real time business opportunities and serving as a resource to offer training that helps the Corporate Member and the WBENC-Certified WBE grow their capacity.
Our Impact For The Future
