"A.Vogel has always strived to protect the environment in our agricultural and manufacturing processes," said Mackie Vadacchino, CEO. "That is why we are proud to be partnering with Bullfrog Power to support clean, renewable energy for our Montreal head office and create a cleaner, healthier world for all Canadians."

Through the agreement, Bullfrog Power's generators put clean, green energy onto the energy system to match the amount used by A. Vogel's facilities. Across Canada, Bullfrog's green electricity comes from a blend of wind and low-impact hydro power sourced from new Canadian renewable energy facilities. Sourced from a unique, ground-breaking methane-capture project situated on one of Canada's thousands of landfill sites, Bullfrog's green natural gas is a climate-friendly alternative to conventional, polluting natural gas. Through this innovative technology, biogas is captured, cleaned up, and put onto the national natural gas pipeline, displacing fossil fuel-based gas and reducing CO2 emissions into the atmosphere.

"We are excited to welcome A. Vogel to the bullfrogpowered community," said Anthony Santilli, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Bullfrog Power. "By choosing clean, pollution-free energy, A. Vogel is reducing its environmental impact and supporting the growth of green energy projects across Canada."

In addition to choosing green energy with Bullfrog Power, A. Vogel sustainability initiatives include:

  • A.Vogel medicinal plants come from A.Vogel crops, either by farmers under contract or carefully supervised wild collections and sustainable farming projects that take into account the needs of the local population, optimum protection and sustainable use of natural resources.
  • A.Vogel products use certified organic raw material grown in healthy soil and extracts from freshly harvested plants wherever possible.
  • No artificial fertilizers, no pesticides, no weeding nor fungicides are used.
  • A.Vogel websites worldwide are powered by sustainably-produced electricity from Rätia Energie.
