2. Carbon Neutral 2020
Victoria International Marina is committed to taking responsibility for our impact on climate change, with the ultimate goal of being Carbon Neutral by 2020. We first minimize our carbon footprint by choosing renewable and energy-efficient technologies and reducing and recycling waste. We will then purchase carbon offsets to neutralize our remaining emissions.
What we are doing:
- Committed to reducing and recycling waste, such that 90% of all waste produced and collected onsite out of the landfill.
- Our onsite waste management system includes separated streams for organics, paper, cardboard, glass, tin, soft and hard plastics, Styrofoam, batteries & electronics, and oil.
- Building uses energy-efficient air source heat pumps and ENERGYSTAR equipment.
- Renewable energy credits purchased to offset natural gas use onsite.
