This sponsorship will create shared value for Aurora’s customers by taking action to address climate change, while directly supporting communities in surrounding regions of Aurora facilities in Ontario (ALUS Peterborough, ALUS Norfolk) and Alberta (ALUS Wetaskiwin-Leduc), with the desire to make this a long-term commitment.

With support from Aurora, ALUS will steward 50 New Acre™ Project acres, helping to restore wetlands and grasslands, create pollinator and wildlife habitat, reforest, plant windbreaks, install riparian buffers, manage sustainable drainage systems and establish other ecologically beneficial projects, as well as ongoing maintenance and project monitoring.
