Toronto, April 27, 2015—Today, Bullfrog Power®, Canada’s leading green energy provider, and Mackenzie Financial Corporation (Mackenzie Investments) announced a new sustainability partnership that will see Mackenzie Investments choose Bullfrog Power’s green natural gas for its Simcoe Street office in Toronto.

“We believe taking care of the environment is right thing to do for future generations,” said Jeff Carney, President and Chief Executive Officer, Mackenzie Investments.  “Incorporating environmental considerations into our business decisions makes our business stronger and by partnering with Bullfrog Power we are taking our environmental responsibility to a new level.”

Through the agreement, Bullfrog Power’s generators inject green natural gas onto the national pipeline to match the amount of conventional natural gas used by the Mackenzie Investments Toronto office at 180 Simcoe Street.

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.

“Bullfrog Power is proud to partner with Mackenzie Investments on their latest sustainability initiative,” said Peter Melanson, CEO, Bullfrog Power. “And by choosing green energy, Mackenzie Investments is reducing its own environmental impact while helping to support the development of new renewable energy projects across Canada.”

Mackenzie Investments’ green energy commitment is part of a broader initiative by its parent company, IGM Financial, Inc. IGM Financial appears on the bullfrogpowered Green Index in the top 20 largest purchasers of green energy in Canada with Bullfrog Power.
