An Airdrie company that focuses on environmental sustainability and is having a huge impact with its efforts has just won a prestigious award from the Alberta Chamber of Commerce.
At the recent 2019 Alberta Business Awards of Distinction, Carbon Credit Solutions (CCS) was named the "Leading Edge Award of Distinction" winner. The award was presented at the Renaissance Edmonton Airport Hotel on March 1st.
CCS has become a world leader in the field of measuring, reporting and verifying greenhouse gas emissions from large-scale aggregated emission reduction projects in the agricultural sector. Some of their more than 2,600 clients include Fortune 500 businesses like Monsanto, Royal DSM and McDonald's.
CCS was founded more than ten years ago by Alastair Hadley, the man who helped start another Alberta company, Westjet. CCS currently has more than nine million acres of farmland in Alberta sequestering carbon in the soil. They also advise for the Alberta, Ontario and Maritime governments.
The company is no stranger to winning awards. They were also named the winner of the 2018 Deloitte Technology Fast 50 program award for their proprietary software that allows them to mitigate risk, implement controls and accurately measure the success of green projects. CCS also received the 2018 Deloitte Technology Fast 500 program for ranking #140 in all of North America.
Another business with an office in Airdrie was up for an award but finished as a runner up. Superior Show Service Inc. was a finalist for the Marketing Award of Excellence.
