Our Mission

At Brightspot Climate, we believe in protecting our world for all species and for future generations. We focus on delivering innovative and practical solutions to the climate challenge.

Our team connects the dots between business, government, and the people in our communities to achieve shared sustainability goals.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We are all connected and share roots, as far back as that may be. Brightspot recognizes that systemic issues have negatively impacted some of these roots; we are committed to fighting those issues head-on. Brightspot is dedicated to actions that advance the movement towards a more just and equitable society, with a focus on:

1) Embracing the inclusion of underrepresented and minority groups;

2) Enhancing leadership in the LGBTQ+ community; and

3) Advancing women in professional fields, particularly in science and engineering

The Brightspot Story

The name “Brightspot” contains many facets of our company ethos. We strive to lead by example; we aim to be a figurative North Star in the climate-mitigation night sky. And as much as we are excited about tomorrow’s possibilities, we also have great respect for our history.

Brightspot School was a small, one-room school on the Saskatchewan prairie. Several members of the extended Schroeder family attended the school. In 1983, Lorne and Theresa Schroeder adopted the name for their family dairy farm, Brightspot Holsteins. “Brightspot” embodies the passion we have for our deep prairie roots and the special places we cherish.

At its core, our name demonstrates our company’s foundation in education, connection to the land, zeal for the environment, and hope for our families and friends. Together we can build strong communities, a healthier world, and a brighter future.
