Vancity and the PNE celebrate 7 years of going green

With summer right around the corner, it will soon be time to enjoy the PNE Fair!

Vancity has been proud to partner with the PNE for the past 12 years. For the last 7 years our partnership has focused on helping the Fair green its operations and become a sustainability leader.

In 2018, we started working the PNE to incorporate the successes from the Fair into their year-round operations, focusing on improving back-of-house sorting, increasing diversion containers, and switching to 100 per cent compostable single-use items.

With a goal of increasing year-round waste diversion by 3-5 per cent each year, we achieved 71 per cent overall waste diversion—a 5 per cent increase from 2017.

Of course, we couldn’t have done this without our community partners. Through strategic partnerships with organizations like The Binners’ Project—a social enterprise that saw an expanded role in 2018—and by asking fairgoers like you to pitch in, the PNE Fair has achieved the kind of sustainability successes that make it a model for the industry.
