Spirit of Winnipeg Award Finalists!

Posted on Apr 24, 2024 by The Forks Market

We're thrilled to announce that our Target Zero initiative has been nominated in the Environment and Energy category for the Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce's Spirit of Winnipeg Awards.
It's an honour to receive this recognition alongside our fellow nominees, Efficiency Manitoba and Little Brown Jug, allowing us another opportunity to celebrate our Target Zero initiatives and the impact those efforts have on our community.
Here at The Forks, we boast a pretty impressive goal: zero garbage, zero water waste, and zero carbon emissions. We call this goal “Target Zero.” Target Zero guides everything we do. We take every step possible to implement innovative and responsible environmental practices that are good for the planet and the bottom line, a spot we like to refer to as “where the two greens meet.”

Here are several of the key implementations that make up the Target Zero program at The Forks:
  • Geothermal heat pump system
  • Biofuel
  • Composting
  • Water use
  • Recycling
  • Public orchard and bees
  • Active transportation routes/paths

Adding to our excitement, we're honoured to be home to a project whose creators are also nominated for a Spirit of Winnipeg Award - Synonym Art Consultation and Design Shop. Last summer, the art washroom at The Forks, a collaboration between the two creative organizations, opened with lots of anticipation and widespread praise. Their innovative use of public art and spatial design has earned them a nomination for the Design and Building award—a well-deserved recognition for their outstanding contribution to our space.
Join us in celebrating the 15th Annual Spirit of Winnipeg Awards ceremony, where we'll raise a glass to honor the remarkable efforts, commitment, and successes of 25 outstanding Winnipeg businesses.
