This award is a direct result of Canadian Tire’s completion of 438 green initiatives in 2011 which is forecasted to reduce costs by more than $5.6 million, reduce 2,451 tonnes of waste and 6,900 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions annually.

"Far beyond a 'green' initiative, the business sustainability strategy centres around three key areas - products and packaging, transportation of products and buildings and operations," continued Elm. "Canadian Tire promotes the use of low-carbon energy, energy efficiency and material efficiency, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and waste."

The GLOBE Awards are judged by a leading a panel of Canadian business community experts to recognize Canadian corporate sustainability practices that yield bottom line results.
