We offer free one-on-one individualized coaching with small businesses to identify and achieve their energy efficiency, waste reduction, and water conservation goals.

Energy efficiency is an important step toward creating a more sustainable future in Lethbridge. Reducing energy consumption is beneficial to the environment and is cost effective for businesses and consumers.
At Environment Lethbridge, we appreciate the many challenges that businesses can face when trying to become more energy efficient, the largest of which is that many of these activities will include changes to the building that can be cost prohibitive and/or be the responsibility of the landlord. We will be looking to work with each individual business and the limitations they may have. There are many simple steps that can be taken to make your business more energy efficient that are cost-effective, but will also have a great return on investment.
