“As the national governing body for tennis in Canada, it is important for Tennis Canada to demonstrate environmental leadership. If we set a positive example that we understand our responsibility to the environment and are acting now, hopefully other sport entities will join the effort and reduce their carbon footprint. Partnering with Bullfrog Power is the right step toward reducing our impact on the environment.”
Michael S. Downey
