News: The BBOT Pledge for a Sustainable Community Celebrates Its 100th Pledge Taker!

When we launched the Pledge in November last year our goal was to have a 100 Pledge Takers by December 2013. Well, we’re thrilled to announce that we have reached that goal 4 months ahead of schedule.

So first of all, a big thank you to all of our Pledge Takers and to all of the sponsors of the Pledge who very early on jumped on board and supported this initiative.
In the coming weeks you’ll hear more news regarding the development of the new Pledge web site which will be more user friendly and allow Pledge Takers and browsers to see information more easily regarding the Pledge community.

But in the mean time, here are some of the organizations who have taken the Pledge.
Our very first Pledge Taker was Valley Bakery, our 50th was BCAA and our 100th Pledge Taker was Ricoh Canada. Others include: 12 financial institutions, 12 Not-for Profits, 4 educational institutions, 12 are in the process of or are completing the Climate Smart workshop and one organization that we’re aware of who Pledged to report their sustainability progress under the Global Reporting Initiative framework and reached their goal!

Congratulations to everyone on their sustainability efforts and remember to keep in touch with us with how we’re doing  so we can help celebrate your progress and successes.
