Shrinking our Carbon Footprint: 2019 Initiatives

Through a series of initiatives we are reducing our carbon footprint across the company:

• Reduced commuting: we are promoting work-from-home, carpooling, and bike-to-work initiatives to reduce commuting and associated emissions.

• Promoting zero-emission vehicles among staff: to accelerate the adoption of ZEVs for daily use, we recently installed level 2 electric charging stations in our car park, and collaborated with Toyota to offer Ballard employees the opportunity to purchase Toyota’s hydrogen fuel cell cars. There are now 10 zero emission fuel cell cars among Ballard staff. • Saving energy on lighting: in our Burnaby facilities, we support the BC Hydro Lights Off campaign. In Denmark, our facilities have converted from conventional fluorescent lamps to LED lights. • Recirculating hydrogen in fuel stack testing: into our fuel cell stack test stations we have begun recirculating the hydrogen used in factory acceptance tests, making our fuel cell testing more sustainable. • Reducing electrical use in testing: our fuel cell test stations now use regenerative load banks that feed electricity to our internal microgrid, which reduces our consumption of external electricity.


Toward a Circular Economy

Ballard is a supporter of the circular economy, an economy that builds economic, natural, and social capital by designing out waste and pollution, and keeping products and materials in use. We work to reduce waste in our operations, and to reuse the materials in our products when the products reach end-of-life.
