Hemmera, an Ausenco company, is a leader in environmental services in Canada, is pleased to announce that we have been recognized as one of Canada’s Greenest Employers for the fifth consecutive year. “We are honoured and proud to receive this award again,” said Enrico Barbon, Director, Municipal and Climate Change Services. “As an environmental consultancy, this designation recognizes our continuous commitment to reduce potential adverse effects on the natural environment and to find a better way to operate all the lines of our business sustainably.”

Organized by Mediacorp Canada Inc., this annual award recognizes the employers that lead the nation in creating a culture of environmental awareness in their organizations. These employers have developed exceptional sustainability initiatives – and are attracting people to their organizations because of their environmental leadership.

The Greenest Employers were evaluated according to four key factors: unique environmental initiatives or program development; success in reducing their own environmental footprint; employee involvement in these programs, including individual contribution of unique skills; and the success of environmental initiatives in connecting to the employer’s public identity to attract new people who share the same values.

Reflecting our commitment to continual improvement, some of the reasons why we were selected as one of Canada’s Greenest Employers are:

  • Having an employee-led Environment Committee
  • Providing a range of commuter amenities
  • Delivering an environmental orientation program for new staff
  • Participating in ongoing green community initiatives such as roadside and shore cleanups.
