Winnipeg, April 22, 2015—Today, Bullfrog Power®, Canada’s leading green energy provider, and Investors Group are announcing an environmental partnership to bullfrogpower the Investors Group head office at 447 Portage Avenue in Winnipeg, Manitoba, with 100 per cent green natural gas.
“By choosing green energy with Bullfrog Power for its head office, Investors Group is both reducing its environmental impact and strengthening its commitment to communities by joining the bullfrogpowered individuals and organizations supporting new renewable energy projects in communities across Canada,” said Peter Melanson, CEO, Bullfrog Power.
Through the agreement, Bullfrog Power’s generators inject green natural gas into the national pipeline to match the amount of conventional natural gas used by the Investors Group head office in Winnipeg. That means that the office can be heated with natural gas without contributing to climate change.
Sourced from a unique, ground-breaking methane-capture project situated on one of Canada’s landfills, Bullfrog Power’s green natural gas is a climate-friendly alternative to conventional, polluting natural gas. Through this innovative technology, biogas is captured, cleaned up, and put into the national natural gas pipeline, displacing fossil fuel-based gas and reducing CO2 emissions into the atmosphere.
“Investors Group has a strong corporate culture of caring and that’s why we are reducing the impact of our Winnipeg head office on the environment with Bullfrog Power,” said Murray J. Taylor, President and Chief Executive Officer, Investors Group. “Supporting green energy is one way Investors Group is committing to corporate citizenship and giving back to our communities.”
In addition to its environmental partnership with Bullfrog Power, Investors Group is a sponsor of Earth Day Canada for 2015 and has developed enduring associations with organizations such as Imagine Canada, Volunteer Canada, Free The Children, the Canadian Foundation for Economic Education, AthletesCAN and the Coaching Association of Canada to help them in their community efforts.
Investors Group is listed on the bullfrogpowered Green Index alongside the name of its parent company, IGM Financial. IGM Financial appears on the bullfrogpowered Green Index as one of the 20 biggest purchasers in Canada of Bullfrog Power’s green energy by megawatt hour equivalent.
