May 6 2013 - Aki Energy is proud to be a non-profit social enterprise. For those who may not be familiar with the term 'social enterprise,' it means that Aki Energy is a non-profit business with a triple bottom line - people, planet, profit.
That means that in all the work we do, we strive to build stronger, healthier communities while improving and protecting the environment while maintaining a solid business foundation. At Aki Energy, we think that social enterprise provides a new approach to tackle some very old problems. It is time to focus on how we can work together to build prosperity in our communities, both Aboriginal and non-aboriginal, urban, rural and reserve.
