The Sustainable Community

The Sustainable Community brings together more than 820 greenhouse gas reduction micro-projects carried out by several small and medium-sized businesses from various sectors, non-profit organizations and municipalities. It rewards the efforts of these local organizations and encourages them to reduce their carbon footprint. All carbon credits generated by the Sustainable Community micro-projects are validated under VERRA’s Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) program.

Project Proponent: WILL Solutions

Impact so far: 5.2 million tons of greenhouse gases reduced since 2010.

Choosing to offset with Sustainable Community is:

  • Supporting the GHG reduction efforts of small organizations that emit less than 25,000 tons of GHG per year.
  • Contributing to local and circular economy.
  • Encouraging the energy and ecological transition in Canada.

What is a carbon-credit?

A carbon-credit allows you to cancel the production of 1 tonne of greenhouse gases.

Each carbon-credit sold contributes to the success of projects by SMEs, NPOs, farms, municipalities and schools in Canada.

This means that your action enables local businesses and organizations to further invest in solar panels, geothermal systems, waste recovery and much more.

What is 1 tonne of greenhouse gases

Annual beef consumption
for 2 people

In Canada, the average annual beef consumption in 2019 was 18.12 kg per person. According to Canada's Food Guide, one serving of meat is equivalent to 75 g, which represents about 5 servings of meat per week per Canadian. According to FAO emission factors, 1 kg of beef is equivalent to 27 kg CO2e. In order to convert kg to tonnes (t), we use the factor 0.001. So, for a household of two, the emissions amount to 1 t CO2eper year» 1 t CO2eper year.

REDUCE MY EMISSIONS

Use of a car
over 4500 km

The HEC Montreal Chair in Energy Sector Management estimates the average gasoline consumption of the individual car fleet at 9.4 L/100 km, which is similar to a sedan, a mid-size car or as mall SUV. Knowing that the CO2e content of gasoline is 2361.2 g CO2e/L, we obtain an average emission factor of 222 g CO2e per kilometer driven. Therefore, 1 t CO2e is equivalent to 4,504.5 km.

REDUCE MY EMISSIONS

Almost a lifetime of
smart phones

The entire life cycle of a smartphone is estimated at 60 to 70 kg CO2e. Apple also estimates the carbon footprint of the Iphone 12 at 70 kg CO2e. The average lifetime of a smartphone is about 3 years, so we estimate that an individual will use an average of 20 smartphones during his lifetime. 20 smartphones that emit 70 kg CO2e each are equivalent to 1,400 kg CO2e. To convert kg to tons (t), we use the factor 0.001. The carbon footprint of a lifetime of smartphones for one person is 1.4 t CO2e. 1 t CO2e is therefore equivalent to 15 smartphones.

Sustainable pricing

The price is based on the Social Cost of Carbon (SCC) established by the USEPA and confirmed by the Canadian GHG emission floor price set for the period 2020-2030.

80% to stakeholders

80% of every dollar collected is returned to the stakeholders, i.e. the members of the Sustainable Community who have carried out greenhouse gas emission reduction projects.

VERRA Certification

All greenhouse gas reductions are verified according to the Sustainable Community project validated under the VCS program from VERRA. Under the VCS program, micro-projects receive unique carbon credits known as Verified Carbon Units (VCUs). Each VCU represents a reduction of one tonne of carbon dioxide equivalent (tCO2e). VCUs follow a rigorous verification and validation protocol and must meet criteria that ensure their quality. A single VCU is retired when the end user purchases it, ending its life cycle. It cannot be resold or reused afterwards.

ABOUT WILL SOLUTIONS

WILL Solutions regroups micro-projects of GHG reductions under a Sustainable Community (SC). The micro-projects are carried out by SMEs, farms, municipalities, schools and NPOs from all regions of Quebec who, aware of the climate crisis, have decided to take action and reduce their GHG emissions through energy conversion, energy efficiency and diversion of waste from landfill.

VOTRE IMPLICATION

En achetant un crédit carbone de Communauté Durable, vous participez à des dizaines de projets.
Découvrez quelques uns de ceux-ci, les objectifs et les personnes qui s'en occupent!

Éco centre de la MRC de Témiscaminque

Détournement des matières résiduelles de l’enfouissement

Les matières résiduelles sont acheminées, triées, récupérées et compostées à l’écocentre de la MRC.

La biomasse urbaine y est récupérée, les matières organiques compostées et le papier et le carton sont triés et récupérés pour envoi  au recyclage.

Le tout assure une meilleure gestion des matières résiduelles et permet par leur détournement de la filière de l’enfouissement une réduction importante des émissions de GES émises sur le territoire de la MRC.

Les serres Desjardins

Conversion énergétique

Les Serres Desjardins est situé à La Baie au Saguenay.

L’entreprise a remplacé l’huile no.2 comme combustible pour le chauffage de ses serres pour un système à l’électricité afin de réduire les émissions de GES liées à l’utilisation des énergies fossiles.

Centre de services scolaire de Kamouraska-Rivière-du-Loup

Conversion énergétique

La diminution des émissions de GES du Centre de services scolaire de Kamouraska-Rivière-du-Loup par la conversion des systèmes de chauffage à l’huile vers des systèmes de géothermie sur 14 bâtiments scolaires.

Réseau de chaleur municipalité de Causapscal

Conversion énergétique

La municipalité de Causapscal est située dans la région du Bas-Saint-Laurent.

La municipalité a implanté un projet de réseau de chaleur à la biomasse forestière reliant 7 bâtiments.

L’objectif principal de ce projet était de remplacer le mazout comme combustible pour le chauffage afin de réduire les émissions de GES.

Ce projet avait aussi pour but de développer l’économie local et stimuler la création d’emploi.

YOUR INVOLVEMENT

By purchasing carbon-credits from the Sustainable Community, you participate to dozens of projects.
Discover some of them, their objectives and the people who achieved them!

MRC of Témiscamingue’s Ecocentre

Diversion from landfill of residual waste

Residual materials are sent, sorted, recovered and composted at the MRC's Ecocentre, where urban biomass is recovered, organic materials are composted, and paper and cardboard are sorted and recovered to be sent for recycling.

This ensures a better management of residual materials and, by diverting them from landfill, allows for a significant reduction in GHG emissions on the MRC's territory.

Heat Network at the Causapscal Municipality

Energy Conversion

The municipality of Causapscal, located in the Lower St. Lawrence region, has implemented a biomass heating network project linking 7 buildings.

The main objective of this project was to replace fuel oil as a heating fuel in order to reduce GHG emissions. This project also aimed to develop the local economy and stimulate job creation.

The Kamouraska-Rivière-du-Loup School Board

Energy Conversion

The Kamouraska-Rivière-du-Loup School Board reduced the GHG emissions of 14 school buildings by converting oil heating systems to geothermal systems.

Les Serres Desjardins

Energy Conversion

Les Serres Desjardins is located in La Baie in the Saguenay region of Quebec.

The company has replaced fuel oil as heating fuel for its greenhouses with an electric system in order to reduce GHG emissions related to the use of fossil fuels.
