AET Group Recipient of Sustainable Waterloo Region’s ‘Most Active Member’ and Carbon Cleanse Winner For 3rd Consecutive Year

May 4, 2017

On April 27th, Sustainable Waterloo Region held its 7th annual Evening of Recognition to celebrate the efforts made by organizations within our community to reduce our environmental impacts. And what a night it was! Connecting with inspiring leaders and sharing ideas on sustainability, SWR hosted an encouraging event recognizing participants in the community on their initiatives.

In 2016, AET became SWR’s first triple-pledge member of the Regional Sustainability Initiative, setting targets for all three areas of impact reduction in the program- carbon, waste, and water. To kick off our pledge, we installed a bioswale at our Kitchener office to clean and divert water from the stormwater infrastructure, and signed up with Bullfrog Power to implement clean renewable energy offsets. For these efforts and our many other ongoing sustainability initiatives, AET was recognized as the award recipient for the Most Active Member of 2016!

Along with this award AET also won 2017’s Carbon Cleanse Challenge which took place during March and April. AET staff were engaged, determined and active, working together to make a difference during the 4 weeks of challenges and taking the title for the third year in a row! Here are some highlights:

The Evening of Recognition helped inspire us to continue on in our sustainability initiatives and brainstorm more ways to reduce our impact on the environment. Congratulations to all the winners at this years’ event, it is incredible and motivating to see so much engagement in the community!
