The award recognizes employers with environmental programs and Earth-friendly policies that create a culture of environmental awareness within their organization.
"We are delighted to be honoured for our commitment to sustainable practices and green initiatives," says Agnieszka Wloch, Vice President, Development, Minto Communities Canada. "This is a clear reflection of our investment in creating a culture of environmental awareness."
Canada's Greenest Employers are evaluated for demonstrating unique sustainability initiatives and programs, a reduction in the organization's environmental footprint, unique employee skills and contributions to environmental management programs and the extent to which initiatives have been linked to the employer's public identity.
