Tim Hortons leader in energy savings program: energy ministerOttowa Community News, November 13, 2014
A provincial energy savings program with “ambitious” goals is not only striving to help businesses with their bottom lines, but also working to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, says the Ontario government.
Program participant Tim Hortons is leading by example on this front, Ontario Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli said during a press conference on Nov. 10 at a Tim Hortons restaurant at 2951 Bank St. south of Hunt Club Road, one of 245 Tim Hortons franchises in Ontario that have been renovated this year with energy saving features.
“When you show leadership on the environment and conservation front it matters,” Chiarelli said of the company which enrolled in the province’s saveONenergy for Business program in May. “It can inspire others to do the same.”
