2016 NOMINATION FORM

The Surrey Board of Trade’s Environment Team exists to consider policy and educate businesses on the environment – that is how to reduce operating costs, develop new business opportunities, and reduce energy needs. Large businesses have the resources to make a change, but so do small and medium sized businesses.

Surrey Board of Trade Announces 2015 Environment and Business Awards Winners

Surrey, B.C. – On Thursday, September 10th, the Surrey Board of Trade presented three winners with the Environment and Business Awards. The awards were presented to Surrey Board of Trade members or Surrey-based businesses that have demonstrated exceptional dedication to environmental leadership and/or issues. The award recipients are guided by a sense of respect for the environment and demonstrate this initiative consistently. 

This year’s winners are:
Small Business – TBF Environmental Technology Inc.

TBF Environmental’s sole business focus is the development and marketing of environmentally friendly solvents to displace toxic and polluting solvents in common use worldwide. The company’s green solvents work in many industrial applications and meet all VOC regulations, exceeding the performance of solvents developed by the large multinational chemical companies.

Medium Business – Executive Mat Service & Janitorial Supply

Executive Mat Service & Janitorial Supply is the only laundry in Canada to offer ISO 14001 certified (a worldwide environment management system) industrial towel cleaning service. Their first initiative was a closed loop system where the volatiles are extracted from the towels with heat. The vapour is then cooled, turning it back into a liquid, which is then used as the fuel source in the boiler. In their quest to recycle, reuse and become energy self sufficient, the company has taken the next step and have installed a gasification chamber, allowing them to turn discarded materials into thermal energy that heats the water used in the washing process. Through these methods and much more, the company hopes to create enough energy to fulfill both their thermal and electrical needs!

Large Business – Emterra Environmental

Within the waste management sector, Emterra Environmental stands unique amongst the crowd because the core business is in recycling. Some examples of Emterra’s environmental innovation and success are: inventing the “blue bag” recycling system; ownership of four large scale single stream recycling plants; state of the art facilities and recycling technology; and recycling of unique waste streams, such as scrap tires and liquid waste. Emterra also strongly believes in contributing to the community, and is proud to have a number of creative and innovative programs that support BC.

The 9th Annual Surrey Board of Trade Environment and Business Awards Luncheon event also featured a Climate Change Action Panel, including:

- Jas Johal, LNG Alliance

- Nancy Olewiler, SFU School of Public Policy

- Merran Smith, Clean Energy Canada

- Mike Starchuck, City of Surrey Councillor

Award Sponsor: Levelton Consultants Ltd.
