We've won awards for our corporate culture. Awards for financial performance. We've been named one of the Top 10 places to work in Canada at least four times in the last two years. But today we're thrilled to be named one of Canada's 30 greenest workplaces! And 12th at that – not too shabby!
That's right, Intelex has been included in the Green 30 of 2013, a prestigious ranking of Canadian businesses that have incorporated environmental stewardship into their business model and corporate culture. The ranking, which covered businesses across the country of any size and scope, was determined by Aon Hewitt and Queen's School of Business and published today in Canada's venerated Maclean's magazine.
“Across the company from frontline staff, to our pioneering Green Team, right up to the executive team we have fully embraced environmental stewardship and this ranking is a gratifying acknowledgement of the hard work we’ve put in to ensuring we minimize our negative environmental impact in the world,” noted Intelex President and CEO Mark Jaine. Check out the full story in our Press Room.
This achievement follows a string of recent wins for Intelex's Green Team, including:
- Slashing paper consumption through a paper conservation program.
- Implemented Dyson hand dryers to replace paper towels. throughout the office bathrooms.
- Building a beautiful organic garden on our patio.
- Expanding a highly successful organics recycling program, and more.
Plans for 2013 include a full-scale power conservation program, implementing motion sensor lights, and restoring our organic garden for the summer. If you have ideas for us, send them out way – we're always trying to come up with new ideas to minimize our environmental impacts.
In the meantime, we thank Maclean's, Aon Hewitt, and Queen's for this prestigious acknowledgement, not to mention our frontline staff, Green Team, and executive for being fully committed to environmental stewardship across all our activities!
