Canada’s Greenest Employers is an annual, high-profile competition that recognises employers that lead the nation in creating a culture of environmental awareness. This is the second consecutive year that we have been recognised.

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 Hemmera, an Ausenco company was 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.

“We are honoured to accept this award for the second year in a row,” said Paul Hemsley, President. “As a national environmental consultancy, we take our role as environmental stewards very seriously. I’m both proud of and thankful to our employees across Canada for continuing to demonstrate The Hemmera Way, every day. Our employees’ environmental commitment is evident in the many ways they support our clients and their projects.”

Chris King-Sidney, President, Consulting, Ausenco said the award was fantastic recognition for a team with a strong and passionate focus on their people, their work and the impact they have on their environment and communities.

“We are proud of the team’s efforts and are delighted that we are now part of Ausenco,” he said.

“We look forward to their continued dedication and success in being both a “Top” and “Green” employer.”
