Burnaby, British Columbia — June 12, 2016 — False Creek Collision has won an environmental award in Business Stewardship from the City of Burnaby. The award is primarily in recognition of the facility’s outstanding efforts to invest in new technologies that reduce electricity consumption and the company’s carbon footprint.
Bernhard Rubbert is the owner of False Creek Collision. He says the facility plans even more environmental upgrades.
“In fact, we just recently installed a brand new air compressor that is already reducing our energy consumption by a whopping 32 percent,” he said. “We will be making other environmentally friendly upgrades too, like switching out our low energy light bulbs, and investing in new LED lights. In the near future, we even plan to install solar panels on our roof.”
The City of Burnaby Environment Committee has congratulated the facility for being leaders in environmental sustainability. A statement from False Creek Collision says the facility plans to continue paving the way for greener business practices, and hopes that other collision repair shops will begin to do the same in the near future.
“Eventually, we intend to become the greenest autobody shop in the whole of Canada, and to encourage other businesses worldwide to adopt more eco-friendly alternatives,” says Rubbert.
