To prevent damage to the five fish-bearing creeks crossing Westwood Plateau, Wesbild developed a set of procedures that minimized environmental impacts both during and after construction. These innovative techniques have been recognized with several awards from groups such as the Audobon Society and Urban Development Institute and have since been adopted as the standard for responsible development in sensitive environments.

Lions Gate Marine Centre, a Wesbild owned and operated marina, is Clean Marine BC certified with a Five Anchors rating. Clean Marine BC is an innovative and voluntary eco-certification program that recognizes marinas, boatyards, and other boating facilities for their implementation of environmental best practices. The Five Anchor Diamond rating is the highest rating that can be obtained.
