Burnaby, BC – April 15, 2019 – Hemmera, an Ausenco company is thrilled to announce that our firm has been recognized by Mediacorp Canada Inc. as one of Canada’s Greenest Employers for the third straight year. This annual, high-profile competition recognizes employers that lead the nation in creating a culture of environmental awareness.
“We are honoured to accept this award for the third year in a row,” says Paul Hemsley, Hemmera’s president and founder. “As a national environmental consultancy, we take our role as environmental stewards very seriously. I’m proud of our employees across Canada for continuing to grow, learn, and live The Hemmera Way, everyday. Our employees’ environmental commitment is evident in the many ways they support our clients and their projects.”
Our unique culture is defined by The Hemmera Way — a collective way of thinking that defines our behaviours, actions, attitudes, and approach to everything we do. The Hemmera Way differentiates us from our competitors by the way we practice our collective values of being people-based, business focused, and values driven while delivering performance excellence to our clients and projects. Since our firm’s inception, reducing our environmental impact has always been a cornerstone of our values-driven approach to conducting our business and serving our clients.
This year’s Greenest Employers were selected 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. Some of the reasons why we were selected as one of Canada’s Greenest Employers include having an employee-led Environment Committee, providing a range of commuter amenities, delivering an environmental orientation program for new staff, and participating in ongoing green community initiatives.
