Sustainable development is a standing commitment at Emperor Stone.
Striving for sustainable practices is simply the right thing to do. In doing so has lead Emperor Stone to financial success. We are always seeking ways to improve our operational efficiency; from sourcing the amount and type of raw materials we use, to the efficient use of electricity to recycling.
Emperor Stone is also changing to reflect the world around us. Climate change is an undeniable fact and we all need to be innovative in how we address our shared environmental goals.
Tree Spree Initiative
Launched in 2022, Tree Spree is a tree-planting initiative and public education program with the overall purpose of recognizing and promoting the value of the city of Coquitlam’s tree canopy. Whether on public or private land, Coquitlams tree’s offer many benefits for our health, well-being and the environment.
The initiative includes public education, tree giveaways to residents and businesses, and tree-planting sessions incorporated into community events and activities.
Emperor Stone is a proud sponsor of the Tree Spree initiative and is a 2023 Tree Canopy Partner. We are very excited to partner with the City of Coquitlam again, and always look forward to seeing smiling Coquitlam school children’s faces during our tree planting events or during information sessions on the importance of sustainability.
The City plans to give away trees at a number of community events
- Teddy Bear Picnic (June 11, 2023)
- Canada Day (July 1, 2023)
- Kaleidoscope (Aug 19, 2023)
