Thinking Globally, Acting Locally

To deliver on this commitment to help save the planet by "thinking globally, acting locally," Gault has launched Polar Bear Empathy Day events, which has gained wholehearted community support.

Through the Gault-PBI alliance, a leadership competition was staged locally, to appoint an Arctic Ambassador. (No other home heating company in the nation offered such a sponsorship.) The Staples High School teen who won, Katya Strage, earned a place in an international team of Arctic Ambassadors, and

participated in conservation efforts to study polar bears in northern Canada. Upon her return, she has led Gault's Empathy Day events in Westport, transforming the Longshore P.A.L. ice rink into an Energy Conservation Zone, and leading educational initiatives with Fairfield County's youngest polar bear fans.

Thanks to our Arctic Ambassador's advocacy, the message is being spread: how simple conservation steps, such as turning down thermostats by just one degree, can make an enormous difference in reducing carbon emissions.
