Our Mission & Values
Ecology and the climate crisis are at the heart of modern culture, at the center of every decision. Everyone has a role to play. We all need to act collectively to protect our world for current and future generations.
To solve a problem, we first need to understand the problem, measure it, identify or create solutions, take action, and evaluate our result.
We take climate science and the bigger picture of the challenges we face and make it accessible and understandable for everyone.
Demonstrating a practical vision for the future through our installations and workshops, we empower people to act now.
Our story so far…
Founded in 2015, Albor Pacific is led by Alexa and Aloïs, two former lawyers with the vision to accelerate the urban food movement.
Urban food and food systems are great opportunities to educate, inspire action, and improve local and healthy food access, soil health, climate change, and the environmental impact of our choices.
Albor Pacific began by working with school districts, offering custom installations of and associated educational programs for school gardens, greenhouses and hydroponics systems. Building on these school offerings, Albor then developed student-centered, hands-on environmental education programs that align with provincial K-12 educational standards and curriculum.
The food system remains at the heart of their philosophy and approach. Why? Food connects people, cultures and communities. Food and food systems start conversations on climate change and sustainability that prime people to highlight both individual and collective actions, and inspire productive conversations.
Over the years, Albor Pacific has continued to develop new services and products in response to its customers’ needs – whether it is a specialized training program or a creatively designed hydroponics system. Currently, Albor Pacific is developing new climate education programs for employees, carbon assessments, and consulting for organizations on sustainability and climate change.
