"Canadian Wildlife Federation is the Official Charitable Partner for JustGreen Lifestyle in Canada"

TORONTO, June 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- JustGreen Lifestyle, a Just Energy Group Inc. (NYSE/TSX: JE) brand, together with the Canadian Wildlife Federation (CWF), are pleased to announce a joint partnership, in an effort to help preserve the wildlife and promote greener and cleaner lifestyles for all Canadians.

In their joint effort to help stop global warming and preserve the environment, JustGreen Lifestyle will donate 5% of every new carbon offset membership purchased through www.justgreencommunity.com to CWF programs. All existing CWF members who offset their carbon footprint through a dedicated web portal www.justgreencommunity.com/cwf will have 10% of their annual membership total donated as well.   

"JustGreen Lifestyle is proud to partner with such a key environmental advocate as the Canadian Wildlife Federation" said Gerardo Manalac, Executive Vice President, JustGreen. "We look forward to contributing needed funding to continue the mission of raising awareness of the importance of our natural world, preserving wildlife habitats and doing our part to help stop global warming."

Reducing Your Carbon Footprint

The JustGreen Lifestyle program offers unique solutions to help families, individuals and businesses reduce their carbon footprint through the purchase of carbon offsets that are equivalent to their personal pollution impact. Not only can JustGreen Lifestyle members offset the harmful carbon emissions resulting from their everyday energy use, they also gain a variety of savings and benefits as part of the program, including, a member welcome kit with items to promote their green commitment, gift cards, member savings and discount offers from top retail partners as a thank you.

Speaking of this partnership, the Canadian Wildlife Federation CEO, Wade Luzny, said "JustGreen Lifestyle provides a new and tangible way for people to come together and address global warming. Their work to help individuals offset carbon emissions is commendable. We are delighted to launch this partnership, and look forward to continuing to work with JustGreen in the future."

Support raised through this partnership will fund the important work that the Canadian Wildlife Federation does to conserve at-risk wildlife and their habitats, which in part is due to climate change.  The CWF efforts include outreach that encourages Canadians to reduce their own carbon footprints, and to minimize their effect on climate change.

By spreading knowledge of human impacts on the environment, sponsoring research, promoting the sustainable use of natural resources, recommending legislative changes and co-operating with like-minded partners, CWF encourages a future in which Canadians can live in harmony with nature.
