This project is an initiative of the Pays de Cocagne Sustainable Development Group (PCSDG), in partnership with Enterprise Kent (EK) thanks to funding received from the New Brunswick Environmental Trust Fund (ETF) in 2007-2008.

Businesses have an economic, social and ecological impact on a region. In the Kent Region of New Brunswick, there are more than 1 600 small and medium enterprises (SMEs). A survey about climate change was done in 2007 among SMEs at the Kent Entrepreneurial Gala. Results
confirmed without doubt that SMEs of the region were interested and ready to commit to the XXIst century challenge : climate change.

This resource guide is offered to all SMEs of the Kent Region and elsewhere. The goal of its publication is to inform businesses so they can better adapt. Simple suggestions to reduce greenhouse gases, known to be a major cause of climate change, are also given. By consulting this guide, it will be possible to implement immediately, basic ecological practices such as waste management and energy efficiency. Reducing the businesses’ ecological footprint will also reduce operating costs.

This guide proposes win-win solutions. Many businesses in Canada are already going green for the common good. Welcome aboard!
