National Vacuum Acquires L2i Solutions, Quebec Leader in the Carbon Market

L2i changes its name and becomes National Ecocredit

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - June 7, 2013) - The management of National Vacuum, a Canadian company with 360 employees specializing in environmental services, is proud to announce the acquisition of L2i Solutions, Canadian and Quebec leader in the carbon credits market. This acquisition allows National Vacuum to complete and strengthen its offering to its municipal and industrial clientele. To mark this transition and clarify its corporate mission, L2i will now use the business name National Ecocredit. All of L2i's current officers, employees and collaborates will stay with National Ecocredit.

As Pierre Filiatrault, National Vacuum's Chief Operating Officer, explained: "This acquisition reflects the company's evolution and its concern for integrating innovative and sustainable solutions into its service portfolio. Since most of our municipal and industrial clients are assessing the economic impact of their efforts to reduce their environmental footprint. We will now be able to offer our clientele specific expertise in the carbon market and valorization of water saving, energy efficiency and biodiversity conservation projects. I am convinced this combination has a very promising future."

L2i Solutions becomes National Ecocredit

Proud of its accomplishments in the carbon market over the past few years, L2i has positioned itself perfectly in this rapidly evolving sector. Today, the firm is recognized in Quebec and the rest of Canada as a trailblazer in this sector. For two of L2i's cofounders, Yves Legault and Christine Lagacé, "National Vacuum is a longstanding collaborator and the decision to integrate their structure was obvious.
