Helijet International Inc. completed its Climate Smart training and certification program.

Vancouver Airport Authority (YVR) has partnered with Climate Smart to engage YVR stakeholder businesses like Helijet to reduce their energy, fuel and potable water consumption, as well as waste, associated carbon emissions and operating costs.

Climate Smart is an award-winning greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions program established in 2009 by Climate Smart Businesses Inc. The program enables companies of all sizes and industries to measure and reduce their GHG emissions and make informed decisions as they invest in efficiencies.

“Over the past years, Helijet has been working to develop and catalogue its sources of emissions while developing partnerships and initiatives on how we all can reduce our footprint on the environment. We are very pleased to now have access to Climate Smart’s training, tools and ongoing support towards our entire team’s commitment to the environment,” stated Danny Sitnam, Helijet President & CEO in a statement. “Alongside our sustainable work with the Pacific Salmon Foundation, Coastal First Nations-Great Bear Forest Carbon Project and now Climate Smart, we are very proud in doing our small part to ensure a sustainable future.”
