Initiatives, Awards & Partnerships

INITIATIVES

At Black Feather, we recognize the importance of addressing our environmental impact. We have taken steps to reduce the carbon emissions footprint of our business by choosing green electricity for our headquarters and packing facility in Ontario with Bullfrog Power. We are also part of two Eco-Tourism Initiatives through Green Tourism and Sustainable Tourism Canada in which we hold "silver" certifications.

We are also a proud member of the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society's (CPAWS) NWT Chapter, where we contribute to the Nahanni River Fund, an integral part to ensuring our Nahanni River trips are able to operate in a sustainable manner.
