Alberta Funeral Services Association




Alberta Funeral Services Association

Their 83rd Annual Conference was an eco-conference! 

The Assocition is utilized The Fairmont Hotel Macondald's Eco Meet promotion for their eco-conscious event on April 29-30, 2011. This meant that each room booked for the conference resulted in the planting and care of a tree in a new forest we have created in Alberta! As a special touch we also arranged for each conference participant to have a spruce seedling to take home in a handy environmentally responsible biodegradable bag. We're proud that the trees we plant and the spruce seedlings are native species straight from Woodmere Nursery, a local provider.

Thanks to the efforts of the Alberta Funeral Services Association their 83rd Annual Conference supported:

  • the planting and care of 75 trees;
  • the creation of more than 450 square meters of forest;
  • the offseting of over 25,000 kilograms of CO2eq emissions;
  • taking the equivalent of about 5 cars off the road; and
  • the contribution of $25.00 to community causes via our Community Fund.

If you have received a certificate through this partnership you can click here to see our online listings, which shows that The Fairmont Hotel Macdonald has purchased the appropriate number of Carbon Plus Credits. Through their partnership with us, The Fairmont Hotel Macdonald purchases Carbon Plus Credits to ensure that each of their environmentally minded Eco Meet guests has a tree planted and cared for in their name. Each Carbon Plus Credit purchased from one of the forests we create is equivalent to the planting and care of approximately three trees.
