Share some new data: Business Energy and Emission Profiles (BEEPS) are an industry sectoral analysis of GHG (greenhouse gas) emissions that provide insight into business emissions by sectors and activity. BEEPS inform community planning around emissions reduction projects and business engagement programs—critical initiatives for municipalities working to reduce community-wide emissions.

Share some stories:  Learn why, how and where sustainability and economic development managers from City of Surrey, Vancouver and New Westminster are using this data to meet community goals.

This  data allows us to identify the potential impact of helping businesses green their operations. It helps us identify the potential impact of key infrastructure projects such as neighbourhood energy utilities and key policy initiative such as waste bans, as well as design more effective programs for helping businesses collectively reduce their environmental footprints.” -   Pietra Basilij, Vancouver Economic Commission on the benefits of the BEEP neighbourhood-level data and analysis.
