Environmental Stewardship

Like many businesses, we’ve made environmental stewardship a priority at Saint John Industrial Parks Ltd. For us, it’s more than preserving the natural resources that drive New Brunswick’s economy. It’s about ensuring a better quality of life for us, and for our children.

In that spirit, we have undertaken several Environmental Stewardship and Park Beautification projects at Saint John Industrial Parks Ltd. They demonstrate our commitment to making innovative sustainable practices and processes part of all we do.

Emera Pipeline Crossing

With Emera as our partner, we undertook a remediation process on the pipeline land. This included reinstatement of disturbed lands and soil erosion controls – highway mix seeding, mature plantings, gentle sloping of the ditches, and landscaping and enhancements of a carpool parking site.

Beautification Initiative

Our $250,000 investment in landscaping improved Spruce Lake’s aesthetics, creating benefits for our tenants and the greater community. This included planting street trees, reinstating ditches with gentle sloping, and landscaping enhancements to key areas.

Blue Bin Recycling

We provided Fundy Solid Regional Waste with a prominent, easy-to-access location to boost participation in its recycling program.

Park-n-ride

Park N’ Ride

In partnership with the Saint John Parking and Transit Commissions, we established a Park N’ Ride site along King William Road. This site encourages and supports our tenants, and the Lorneville Community, in using public transportation. By reducing the number of cars on the road, we are helping to protect air quality, among other benefits.

Lorneville Community Entrance

In partnership with the Lorneville Community Association, we will support the design, build, and installation of a new community entrance sign, complete with associated landscaping. This work builds on landscaping initiatives for the Lorneville Community entrance, which were completed in 2010.

Storm Water Control

We are working closely with the City of Saint John’s engineering department to ensure surface water is controlled on development sites through site-specific design and storm ponds. This will help reduce the surface speed of storm water and help prevent sediment from entering the ecosystem.
