Oct. 23, 2012, Ottawa – The Ottawa branch of Imperial Coffee and Services Inc. is now 100 per cent bullfrog powered.

This means Bullfrog Power’s generators inject clean, renewable
electricity onto the regional grid to match the amount of power Imperial
Coffee and Services Inc. uses. Across Canada, Bullfrog’s electricity
comes exclusively from wind and hydro facilities that have been
certified as low impact by Environment Canada under its
EcoLogoM program, instead of from polluting sources or large hydro.

In April, Imperial Coffee and Services announced it had joined a
worldwide movement to “outsmart waste” through the TerraCycle program,
which converts waste material into a wide variety of products and
materials.
Imperial Coffee and Services Inc.’s  "go green" mandate already includes
initiatives like bio-degradable packaging, recycling brewers and filter
packs, and using Greenware cold drink cups. The Imperial Coffee and
Services warehouse uses energy-efficient radiant heating. The company
has also purchased carbon credits to partially offset emissions from its
participation at a conference.
