WE ARE WILL.
Founded in 1997
WILL Solutions is a privately owned Canadian company, certified B Corp. committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. We are active in the voluntary carbon markets with the Sustainable Community project. WILL has a social philosophy based on sharing that rests on two major axes: democratizing access to carbon credits by pooling local greenhouse gas reduction projects carried out by SMEs, municipalities and NPOs, and returning as much money as possible to them following the sale of carbon credits by WILL.
WILL comes from the words willingness and legacy. The name refers to our involvement in voluntary carbon markets, but more importantly, it reflects our company values of promoting voluntary climate initiatives that go beyond business as usual.
WILL constantly strives to promote its image of reliability and excellence by remaining at the cutting edge of knowledge in both the carbon market and environmental management.
Our company offers quality business solutions tailored to the needs of decision-makers. One of our main priorities is to support new products and innovative projects with a unique profile.
1. Innovate collaboratively; develop, learn and adjust.
2. Earn trust and respect through transparent action.
3. Social responsibility to act on climate now.
4. Local impact, global vision.
5. The only constant is change.
WILL has been carbon neutral since 2007 and has been a member of the Net Zero 2030 global movement initiated by B Corp in 2020 following COP25.
We are committed to returning 10% of our net profits to local projects and initiatives that support sustainable development.
Through its ESG commitments, Will Solutions has been recognized as a positive impact company by various labels and certifications. Here is some of the evidence of our commitment, expertise and integrity.

A Worldwide Recognition
The expertise and professionalism of Will Solutions Inc. have earned the respect and trust of many national and international organizations. In November 2002, Gedden (now WILL) was honoured as the grand prize winner in the lesaffaires.com category. The e-Business Gala honours those who, through their creativity, knowledge, and vision, have distinguished themselves through the use of technology in the field of e-business. In June 2005, Gedden (now WILL) was a finalist in the Research and Development category of the 2005 Phénix de l’Environnement Awards.
In February 2012, Solutions Will developed and obtained the VCS (Verified Carbon Standard) certification for the world’s first and only methodology to convert the aggregated efforts (energy demand and waste management) of thousands of small emitters into aggregated carbon credits (clusters). This methodology, the foundation of the Sustainable Community solution, is the basis of the first Sustainable Community project validated in July 2013 for Quebec, thus acting as a global showcase.
Franchising: accelerating the expansion of our model to meet our climate targets
Finally, one of the founding principles of the Sustainable Community is its unifying aspect. We want to accelerate the decarbonization of society on a large scale, while enhancing local communities. This is why we offer the Sustainable Community franchise to investors and entrepreneurs.
