Earth Day Congratulations!!
We’d like to congratulate the municipal and business leaders we’ve worked with who were awarded green employer awards on Earth Day yesterday.
Congratulations to our partners at The Co-operators, The Co-operators Life Insurance Company, and ISL Engineering and Land Services who were honoured yesterday as part of Canada’s Green 30. The Green 30 was announced on Earth Day by Hewitt Associates. As part of the 2010 Best Employers in Canada and Best Small & Medium Employers in Canada studies, Hewitt surveyed over 100,000 employees at 230 organizations regarding their employers' commitment to environmental stewardship. At the Green 30 organizations, an average of 86% of employees have a positive perception of their employers' eco-friendly efforts. We’re really proud of how The Co-operators and ISL Engineering and Land Services are demonstrating sustainability leadership. Congratulations to both! The Green 30 list appears in the May 3 edition of Maclean's, as well as in the May 10 issue of Canadian Business, available on newsstands yesterday.
As well, we’d like to congratulate our friends at the Resort Municipality of Whistler and Whistler Blackcomb, who were part of the similar but different (!) 2010 Canada’s Greenest Employers Awards, also announced on Earth Day, by the editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers. As part of its commitment to becoming a sustainable community, Whistler has not only developed an award winning sustainability plan, Whistler 2020, but has also implemented thousands of actions, large and small. Whistler Blackcomb has also been at the forefront of sustainability leadership with its energy efficiency initiatives, environmental management strategy, waste reduction program and employee engagement activities. Congratulations to both!!
