“West Coast Air will be taking a broader and more strategic approach in our desire to make an impact on climate change, said Rick Baxter, President and CEO.

Many of our industry partners have aligned with emerging organizations to offset their carbon footprint, while we have chosen to make a difference by participating in the education process at the grassroots level – creating awareness with the methods for measuring, reducing and then offsetting.

Ecotrust Canada has developed a Climate Smart program; a series of workshops that leads businesses through the process of measuring their greenhouse gas emissions; setting targets for reduction and developing strategies to achieve them. This program is designed to provide businesses with the training and tools needed to become more environmentally responsible and competitive. West Coast Air's role as host and sponsor will be supported by their active participation in the workshops and they encourage other companies to make the commitment and set a trend in the quest to become carbon neutral.

“As a company, we are investing in this education process and believe that's where West Coast Air can make the most significant and tangible contribution both to the environment and the communities we serve”, said Rick Baxter.
