Robinson Insurance Brokers Ltd., one of Western Canada's leading boutique commercial insurance brokers, is continuing to dedicate efforts towards environmental sustainability with their move into a new eco-office today. Robinson Insurance has a deep-rooted commitment to sustainability. For years, they have been taking steps to lessen their environmental impact. The move today to an environmentally sustainable office is just the latest step taken by the brokerage, who have made strides to reduce their carbon footprint by using energy efficient electronics and computers as well as electronic filing and communication systems. Robinson Insurance also gives priority to local suppliers striving to 'go green' with their products.
As an independent and Alberta owned company, Robinson Insurance is known for offering exceptional personalized service. Relationship building is a first priority, which is an approach that has kept Robinson Insurance a leading commercial brokerage for over thirty years.
"We know through the relationships we've built that the environment is a focus for not only Robinson Insurance but for our clients. While our insurance offering is excellent, this new office move also allows us to align with our clients' environmental goals," explains Daniel Robinson, President of Robinson Insurance. "I want to set an example of how local businesses can operate in a more environmentally conscious way."
Another highlight of the new office is that it is located within an existing community. "The environmental impact of creating new industrial subdivisions is substantial," explains Robinson. "We chose to go a more environmentally friendly direction that also allows us to offer a balance and energy that comes with being part of an existing community." The new office is solar powered, using a 3.4kWh Photovoltaic roof top system, and uses natural light through windows and skylights. The space also uses radiant solar heating and low wattage electronics. The office has been converted from an older building, with sustainable materials and improved framework. Likewise, the new office environment is a bright and healthy atmosphere for staff, with plenty of natural light, and a picnic area for the warmer months.

Moving into an eco-friendly office makes Robinson Insurance one of the first Canadian insurance brokerage to react to a worldwide concern about wasting resources.
Robinson Insurance is holding an open house to showcase their new office building to clients, friends, and associates on November 30, 2012. The open house will give those interested the opportunity to see first hand the many sustainable measures included in the new office building, as well as to hear from Daniel Robinson and a number of the other people involved about the sustainable aspects of the building.
