Practical Solutions for URBAN SUSTAINABILITY

We empower local communities in the Lower Mainland to build a greener future through our interactive programs and activities. The Society Promoting Environmental Conservation (SPEC) is a non-profit, charitable and volunteer-driven organization, founded in 1969. We are the oldest environmental non-profit in Canada.   

Education, Research & Advocacy

 Through our open education and outreach programs we provide our communities with the tools to build greener cities together. We work with citizens, industries and government agencies, putting our brains together to create a healthy environment we can call home.  Our areas of work include:
  • Food - building a more sustainable and resilient local food system
  • Energy - promoting energy conservation and the use of renewable energy
  • Transportation - advocating for sustainable transportation
  • Waste - promoting practices that lead to waste reduction
  • Land and Water - helping to protect our green and blue spaces
