Additional Earth Day initiatives and announcements from Skyline:
- This Earth Day, Skyline staff and tenants were pleased to reinstate in-person outdoor litter clean-up events at Skyline’s offices and properties across Canada, cleaning up our communities.
- Skyline has also launched special e-waste recycling bins at our offices in Guelph, London, Ottawa, and Kelowna (total of 5 locations). Office staff are encouraged to bring in their personal, hard-to-dispose-of e-waste items such as laptops, tablets, and smartphones to be ethically recycled and diverted from landfill through scheduled pick-ups. This initiative will also be launching soon at all Skyline Living properties across Canada.
- Skyline Energy has partnered with Better Battery Co., a company that manufactures the world’s first certified carbon-neutral battery. Better Battery Co.’s streamlined recycling system and delivery program make it easy to recycle batteries and contribute to reducing the environmental pollution. Though initially exclusively available in the United States, Better Battery Co. launched in Canada in early April 2022. Our goal is to use our synergies to influence positive change in the world of batteries, consequently improving the global battery recycling problem.
Skyline will continue to explore technology and retrofit opportunities to reduce the environmental impact of our operations and steer towards a greener future.
