A critical time for our planet

As Canadians, it's easy to assume that shocking figures of wildlife loss don't apply here in Canada. Ours, after all, is a country of abundant freshwater and wide open spaces. However, the results from our Living Planet Report Canada tell us a different story. From 1970 to 2014, 50 per cent of monitored wildlife species in Canada declined in abundance. This dramatic decline is driven by stressors such as habitat loss, pollution, overexploitation and climate change.

As a nation, solving this problem requires action from all corners of society — from communities, government, industry, all of us.


What you can do

Your workplace is a part of this collective and has an important role to play in reversing the decline in wildlife in Canada.

As an employee who cares about nature, you can lead the way. By raising sustainability awareness and mobilizing your colleagues, you can reduce your company's impact on the environment for wildlife and the places they call home.

WWF-Canada and HP Canada created the Smart Office Challenge to help you raise sustainability literacy and influence environmental decision-making around an important business function:
