Faculty Brewing Co. opened in August 2016. It was created to be an open and collaborative environment where visitors can learn about and understand how craft beer is made. The brewery's co-founders, Mauricio Lozano and Alicia Medina, wanted to create an inclusive community space where their passion for brewing could be shared. With a focus on using quality, local ingredients and sustainable brewing practices, their brewing team has a quickly-growing rotating roster of beers which are available on tap in their tasting room as well as to take home in growlers. Their beers are numbered using a system based on the course numbering system used by universities and colleges, corresponding to the complexity of each beer's flavour profile.

​Organization: Van Houtte Coffee Services Inc.
Member since: March 2012

As a customer of FortisBC for over 15 years, Van Houtte has participated in the company’s Spray ‘n Save program, which promotes energy efficiency at the water tap. So when Morten Schroder, VP of operations, was approached by FortisBC to sign Van Houtte up for renewable natural gas, it was a natural link for him.
Morten explains that Van Houtte is a company with an environmental conscience. “We have a number of programs in place to help protect the environment.” From simple habit-changing initiatives like turning off lights upon exiting a room, to bigger changes like replacing delivery vehicles with compact models, Van Houtte is attempting to shrink its carbon footprint one step at a time. With a keen eye towards minimizing waste and reusing resources wherever possible, Morten could see the like-minded values between Van Houtte and FortisBC. More than that, Morten felt compelled to do the right thing.
"We have a responsibility to the environment, a duty. We are always looking for ways to reduce our carbon footprint: [renewable natural gas] is just another way we’re doing that," In the short-term, Morten believes his customers will appreciate the effort. For the long-term, he expects it to be better for business. "We want to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. We can’t afford not to. In the end, it will benefit us all."

1Renewable Natural Gas is produced in a different manner than conventional natural gas. It is derived from biogas, which is produced from decomposing organic waste from landfills, agricultural waste and wastewater from treatment facilities. The biogas is captured and cleaned to create carbon neutral Renewable Natural Gas (also called biomethane).
