Produced by Eclipse Awards, the plaques are hand crafted from salvaged, windfallen Maple trees, with a “living bark” edge to highlight the organic feeling of the wood.

For 2012, we recognized our top six clients, who collective offset over 700 tonnes of greenhouse gases. Congratulations to:

  1. Columbia Sportswear – 200 tonnes
  2. The North Face – 165 tonnes
  3. WorkSafeBC – 126 tonnes
  4. The University of British Columbia – 108 tonnes
  5. Travel Underwriters – 54 tonnes
  6. Marin Mountain Bikes – 54 tonnes

We’re very proud at the traction Zero has gained since 2009.  Overall in 2012, 108 unique clients offset over 1294 tonnes of greenhouse gases, nearly double the impact that was achieved in Zero’s first year. Thank you to everyone for choosing Zero, and we hope that it continues to expand in 2013.
