[Guelph, Ontario – June 15, 2023]

On June 15, 2023, Skyline Group of Companies was awarded the 2023 Sustainability award at the 196th annual Guelph Awards of Excellence hosted by the Guelph Chamber of Commerce.

This award recognizes a business or organization in the city of Guelph that has showcased an outstanding commitment to sustainability through operations, development, or processes.

Skyline was recognized for both its social and environmental sustainability efforts in 2022, including:

  • Becoming one of Canada’s largest biogas providers in 2022 with its Elmira, Ontario and Lethbridge, Alberta biogas facilities
  • Investing $11+ million in energy and water efficiency measures at its properties
  • Its plans to install 900+ EV chargers at its residential properties by March 2024
  • Diverting an anticipated 241,624 kg of compost from landfill annually through organic waste streams
  • Raising $379,000+ across four annual charitable fundraising campaigns
  • Saving 720 tenancies (since 2020) through Skyline Living’s R.I.S.E. program and helping 238 refugee families through Skyline Living’s Refugee Assistance Program

This is Skyline’s second year in a row winning a sustainability-related award from the Guelph Chamber.

Last year, it won the Community Builder award for its contribution to the 32-unit Permanent Supportive Housing development at 10 Shelldale Crescent in Guelph.

“We thank all our Sustainability Partners—our staff, investors, tenants, suppliers, and community partners—for their contributions and commitment to the causes Skyline believes in and takes action on,” said R. Jason Ashdown, Co-Founder and Chief Sustainability Officer, Skyline Group of Companies.

“Together, we put in time, resources, expertise, and financial contributions to make our communities stronger, healthier, and more sustainable. It is heartening to see that community organizations like the Guelph Chamber of Commerce are recognizing these efforts, and we hope that our actions will influence other organizations to adopt similar practices.”

Skyline congratulates all 2023 Guelph Chamber Awards winners and nominees.
