Hemmera Recognized as One of Canada’s Greenest Employers for 2018
BCEIA Member Named Greenest Employer for the 2nd Straight Year
APRIL 19, 2018 – Hemmera, an Ausenco Company is pleased to announce that the firm has been recognized by Mediacorp Canada Inc. as one of Canada’s Greenest Employers for the second straight year. This annual, high-profile competitions recognizes employers that lead the nation in creating a culture of environmental awareness.
“We are honoured to accept this award for the second year in a row,” says Paul Hemsley, Hemmera’s president. “As a national environmental consultancy, we take our role as environmental stewards very seriously. I’m both proud of and thankful to our employees across Canada for continuing to demonstrate The Hemmera Way, everyday. Our employees’ environmental commitment is evident in the many ways they support our clients and their projects.”
Hemmera’s unique culture is defined by The Hemmera Way, a collective way of thinking that defines our employees’ behaviours, actions, attitudes, and approach to everything we do. The Hemmera Way differentiates us from other firms by the way we practice Hemmera’s collective values of being people based, business focused, and values driven while delivering performance excellence to our clients and projects. Since our firm’s inception, reducing our environmental impact has always been a cornerstone of our values-driven approach to conducting our business and serving our clients.
This year’s Greenest Employers were selected according to four key factors: unique environmental initiatives or program development; success in reducing their own environmental footprint; employee involvement in these programs, including individual contribution of unique skills; and the success of environmental initiatives in connecting to the employer’s public identity to attract new people who share the same values. Some of the reasons why Hemmera was selected as one of Canada’s Greenest Employers include having an employee-led Environment Committee, providing a range of commuter amenities, delivering an environmental orientation program for new staff, and participating in ongoing green community initiatives.
Hemmera, a wholly owned subsidiary of Ausenco, is a leading Canadian environmental consultancy valued for our expertise and boutique approach. Our highly respected professionals have created opportunities for sustainable growth and balanced development for our clients. With a reputation for integrity and technical excellence, Hemmera offers progressive environmental services in Site Assessment and Remediation, Environmental Planning and Ecology, and Community Engagement and Social Sciences.
