Small businesses, especially in foodservice, have been hit very hard. It breaks my heart to watch all the owners of restaurants, cafes, catering businesses loosing their livelihood overnight with tens of thousands of workers being laid off.
Among the many projects that I have worked on, Foodservice Energy Challenge must be by far the most exciting and challenging project I have had pleasure to lead. Exciting because of its unprecedented collaboration among government, utilities, non-profit, institution and foodservice businesses. Challenging because of the number of different perspectives, needs and busy schedules. We will celebrate the completion of the Foodservice Energy Challenge and reveal champions’ successes at Save on Energy Foodservice Forum at RC Show 2020 on Tuesday, March 3rd.
When I founded NewSpring Energy in 2012, my mission was clear: “Inspire, enable and guide businesses to a more sustainable future where environmental restoration, social justice and economic prosperity are ‘business as usual’.”
One of the most exciting changes and commitments for NewSpring Energy in 2019 was to become a Certified B Corporation®, joining a growing movement of change-makers using business as a force for good.
With all our good intentions, we sometimes fail to achieve the results we hoped for. The reasons could be many, however here I want to address the toughest one of all – our blind spots.There are two ways that we acquire blinds spots. We acquire them throughOur perception and beliefs of what sustainability is Overwhelm and confusion with the vast amount of information (or disinformation) and opinions we are bombarded with every day
RC Show 2018 was a great success! Thank you to everyone who came and visited our booth.
Many incredible things happened for restaurant sustainability at the show.

PJ L’Heureux nurtured his passion inside since his early adult years. His trip to Portland, Oregon – the craft beer capital of America – helped him to transform his passion into a vision of a place where you can enjoy fresh local food with craft beers from all over the world. In 2011, his vision took shape as CRAFT Beer Market at its first location in Calgary. Since the doors of the first restaurant opened, six other locations have been opened across Canada with the last one in Toronto.
