TORONTO, September 28, 2023 – Jean Shoiry and Mathieu Filion are among Clean50 Honourees who gathered at the “Clean50 Summit 13.0” in Toronto to tackle critical sustainability challenges facing Canada.

Canada’s Clean50 Awards are announced annually by Delta Management Group and the Clean50 organization to recognize those 50 individuals or small teams, from 16 different categories, who have done the most to advance the cause of sustainability and clean capitalism in Canada over the past 2 years.

Mathieu Filion and Jean Shoiry were both chosen after rigorous screening and research by Delta Management, with advice from internal researchers and external advisors, and was among Honourees selected from an initial pool of well over 1,000 well-qualified nominees. Delta’s criteria in determining Honourees is to carefully consider actual measurable accomplishments, demonstrated innovation, collaboration with other organizations, and the power of the Honouree’s contribution to inspire other Canadians to take similar action.

Promoting the adoption of the optimal management of end-of-life (EOL) refrigerated appliances, Jean and Mattieu have built the only facility in North America that captures 99.9 % of the refrigerants and blowing agents contained in such appliances and achieves more than 96.8% recycling rates. This operation led the government of Quebec to adopt the first Canadian Extended Producers Responsibility legislation that obliges optimal management of refrigerated appliances therefore generating substantial GHG reductions and plastic recycling. The sustained efforts also generated a carbon offset protocol within the Quebec-California regulated carbon market which recognizes that the capture and the destruction of CFC’s and HFC’s generates golden standard carbon offsets. The refrigerator recycling facility created 75 full time Canadian jobs and a 15M$ investment. Next up: talking to every other province and replicating the solution.
