Quotes

...is to continue to deliver on our commitment to sustainability and organics," said Kirsten Elliot, senior marketing manager for Snoqualmie Winery. "The ECO glass bottles are among the lightest in the industry and will help reduce our carbon footprint. Beginning in the vineyard and carrying through to the winery and our packaging, it's our belief that investing in these practices is the best way to highlight the wines."
"I think people want to go somewhere that's really special, that's different from home," she said. "Someone might look at the big road with a hundred-foot pipeline (right of way) on one side and big rocks and erosion structures and say, 'This is great.' But it's not what a lot of people are looking for."
IKEA's chief sustainability officer Steve Howard said: "The US has amazing wind and sun resources that will never run out. We are delighted to make this investment - it is great for jobs, great for energy security, and great for our business. Importantly, it's great for the future of our climate"
...a wide-ranging environmental program which has been very much a point of honour for us," said Robert Dépatie, President and CEO of Quebecor. "This year again, we can point to a track record of which we can be proud. We have implemented a series of measures and made daily efforts in all our areas of activity. Our environmental philosophy can be summed up in four words: think ahead, act now. Together, our actions add upup to a long-term difference for the community. I thank all our employees - more than 15,000 strong across Canada - for their engagement with all the initiatives we have taken within organization."
