BlueWay is a community of interest supporting ecofriendly behaviour and the creation and use of sustainable electricity. To foster positive change, Sonepar Canada is leading the initiative by being a reliable information source and facilitating online discussions. What does BlueWay do? BlueWay enables individuals and organizations to make eco-friendly behaviour and the sustainable use of electricity a reality by being a focal point for engagement and action related to our four pillars of expertise: • Energy Conservation • Renewable Energy • Electrical Product Recycling • Green Clean Why the four pillars? Since BlueWay is an electrical products industry-based initiative, we can best enable environmental preservation by harnessing and delivering BlueWay partner expertise in the fields of: • Energy Conservation – why and how to switch on energy conservation at home, in the office and across industries • Renewable Energy – why and how to make renewable energy part of your home, office and industry • Electrical Product Recycling – why and how to protect the environment through electrical product recycling at home, in the office and across industries • Green Clean – Why and how to use green cleaning products in your living and working environment Energy Conservation Energy conservation is a key priority in today’s environmental agenda. It is top-of-mind for many and an integral part of sustainable planning. Reducing electricity bills, using less electricity in our homes, offices, schools and industry means power producers consume fewer natural resources. BlueWay fosters the sustainable use of electricity by harnessing the expertise of the electrical products industry and generating environmental and economical benefits for our community. Renewable Energy Renewable energy is an approach to meeting people’s electrical needs by generating power through alternate sustainable energy sources. These replacement energy technologies avoid burning fossil fuels that produce waste gases and harm the environment as identified by the Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change. BlueWay encourages understanding and sourcing of alternative energy strategies for our homes, offices, schools and industry. Electrical Product Recycling As an electronic products industry-related initiative, we are keenly aware of the challenges and opportunities available for recycling the products our industry produces. For instance, programs are underway across Canada to raise awareness about the importance of safely gathering and disposing of the millions of mercury-containing lamps that would otherwise go into landfills. BlueWay will enable the development of solutions to this and other challenges that support sustainable practices in our homes, offices, schools and industry facilities. Green Clean In the electrical industry some jobs can get very dirty and as a result, require serious cleaning. We realize that some cleaning products are laced with harmful chemicals that pollute the environment, damage the ozone and are toxic to human health. BlueWay encourages the use of green cleaning products and promotes their use in homes, offices, schools and industry.
