Burnaby, BC – April 20, 2020 – Hemmera, a leader in environmental services in Canada, is thrilled to announce that our firm has been recognized as one of Canada’s Greenest Employers for the fourth straight year. Organized by the Canada’s Top 100 Employers panel, this special annual designation recognizes employers that lead the nation in creating a culture of environmental awareness and stewardship in their organizations.
“We are honoured to receive this award for the fourth consecutive year. I’m proud of everyone’s hard work and focus on continuing Hemmera’s environmental commitment in all areas of our business, finding a better way to support our clients and their projects every day,” said Paul Hemsley, Hemmera’s President and founder.
This year’s 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.
“One of Hemmera’s key commitments is to reduce our carbon footprint to meet the challenge of climate change,” said Greg Quandt, Senior Vice President, National Operations. “We work collaboratively with our dedicated and sustainability-driven staff and our environment committee to achieve this goal.”
Reflecting our commitment to continual improvement, some of the reasons why Hemmera was 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.
