History

AET was originally founded in 1998 operating under the name Associated Environmental Technologies, which was renamed AET Consultants in 2001.

In 2008, AET Consultants forged a merger with three other environmental consulting companies, which included EcoServices, Integrated Green Building Concepts (IGBC) and Eco2 Systems to form the AET Group.

In 2012, AET Group completed the acquisition of Manitoba-based Earthbound Environmental.

In 2015, AET Group completed the acquisition of Kuzuka Ltd., an environmental consulting firm specializing in providing Greenhouse Gas and Sustainability Solutions to both the public and private sectors across North America.

In 2017, AET Group completed Project Evergreen – a green design build addition to the existing Kitchener office.

In 2018, AET Group celebrated 20 Years in Business.

Since 1998, AET has grown from a solid waste management company to a sought after, multi-disciplinary environmental consulting, auditing and scientific services firm. Today our clients benefit from our continued growth and expansion of services in a number of technical areas. AET’s growth has been productive, driven by the firm’s ability to identify and implement integrated solutions to complex environmental issues.

We are proud of our accomplishments and as we continue forward we would like to thank those most responsible for our success – our valued clients and dedicated staff.
