TORONTO, Oct. 17, 2017 /CNW/ - Today, Bullfrog Power, Canada's leading green energy provider, is announcing that CDP, formerly Carbon Disclosure Project, the not-for-profit organization that houses the world's largest collection of self-disclosed corporate environmental data and founder of the global disclosure platform, has accredited Bullfrog Power as its first Canada-focused renewable energy partner. For more than a decade, Bullfrog Power has provided homes and businesses across Canada with a renewable energy option, helping them to reduce their environmental impact and support the development of community-based renewable energy projects.
"Bullfrog Power has long been the leader when it comes to renewable energy in Canada," said Ron Seftel, CEO, Bullfrog Power. "Becoming an accredited solutions provider with CDP demonstrates that our comprehensive green energy solution remains the highest quality option for businesses in Canada wanting to lead the transition to the low-carbon economy."

"The partnership between Bullfrog Power and CDP brings together two of BMO's key partners in reliably and transparently reducing and reporting on our operational footprint."
