AET Group Inc. Ranks as One of Canada’s Greenest Employers 2020
For over a decade, Canada’s Greenest Employers has been documenting employers that have been busy working to create a more sustainable future for all – the best of these initiatives were recognized this morning as this year’s Canada’s Greenest Employers were announced by the editors of the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project at Mediacorp Canada Inc. “Values and understanding shift with each generation” says Richard Yerema, Managing Editor of the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project. “Environmental sustainability was once considered contrary to running a successful enterprise, however, within a generation we have witnessed a complete reversal — a focus on long term sustainability in not only necessary for the health of any organization but for society as a whole.”
“It is an honour to be recognized for the second year in a row as one of Canada’s Greenest Employers in 2020,” says Scott Freiburger, Managing Director and CEO of AET Group. At AET, we continue to make sustainability a priority as we challenge ourselves to make decisions that positively impact the environment, our employees, our clients, and society. I am proud of the work of our Sustainability Team that includes a sustainability culture, expanded commitments and meaningful actions to ensure our business practices are shifting from a linear to a circular economy.”
Now in its 13th year, Canada’s Greenest Employers is an editorial competition that recognizes employers that lead the nation in creating a culture of environmental awareness. Winning employers, selected by editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers, are evaluated using four main criteria:
- unique environmental initiatives or programs they have developed;
- whether they have been successful in reducing their own environmental footprint;
- whether their employees are involved in these programs and contribute unique skills; and
- whether their environmental initiatives have become linked to the employer’s public identity, attracting new employees or customers.
AET was selected as one of Canada’s Greenest Employers 2020 due to the building green features we have implemented and our in-house sustainability programs, including our Telecommuting Policy and Sustainable Transportation Policy that encourage employees to work from home when possible and provide incentives for employees to reduce their commuting GHG emissions.
Since its inception in 1998, AET has always been dedicated to sustainability. We set an example for our clients by not only promoting sustainability practices, but by adopting such sustainability practices within our own day-to-day operations. Recognition as one of Canada’s Greenest Employers for a second year is an accomplishment that encourages us to continue to find innovate ways to become a more sustainable business.
