Synergy Sustainability Institute

A few years ago, our team started various community projects and new research to help move our region to a more sustainable future. Our topics of interest were small business, food security, environmental technology and construction techniques. We realized there were gaps in knowledge and an underserviced small business population who wanted to make an impact. 


These projects needed a home, and the Synergy Sustainability Institute (SSI) was founded in 2013 as a BC Non-Profit Society. Our Board of Directors steers the organization towards high-impact projects that move the green economy forward and support small businesses.

Synergy Sustainability Institute's Mission: To Catalyze the Green Economy


The Vancouver Island Green Business Collective (VIGBC) was built to recognize the efforts of local businesses that are reducing their environmental impact. For businesses, it is a guide to greening operations and educating staff. For consumers, it is a symbol that lets us know which businesses have green practices. 

The Ecostar Awards recognize outstanding environmental achievements and leadership on Vancouver Island. The awards are presented to island-based businesses, non-profits, academia, governments and individuals who have demonstrated outstanding leadership in sustainability. 

Creating an urban district in downtown Victoria that celebrates food and sustainability. FED works with local restaurants to create a new sustainable dining district and with landowners to convert underutilized spaces to urban garden oasis. Explore the FED website to learn more about our projects.

Project Zero is the newest program addition to SSI. The goal of this initiative is to bring circular economy concepts to the island. The program's five focus areas are changing business as usual, creating a movement that inspires, partnerships, advocacy, and economic development.
