Our Story

Highwood Emissions Management Inc. is based in Calgary, Alberta. We draw inspiration from the iconic Highwood Pass in Kananaskis, the highest paved road in Canada and one of the most beautiful places in the world. On Calgary’s doorstep, the Highwood Pass brings together people and nature. In the summer, people from around the world come to experience spectacular landscapes, Bighorn sheep, deciduous conifers, and rare wildflowers. In the winter, the pass is closed to protect wildlife. In this way, Highwood represents the necessary balance between benefiting from our environment while caring for it. We take pride in helping diverse stakeholders to expertly navigate this balance.

A growing number of voluntary emissions reduction initiatives exist for companies that want to demonstrate leadership to investors, end users, and the public. But the space is noisy; how initiatives compare, and the benefits of participation remain unclear. To shed light on these matters, Highwood has published this report.
