Recognized as one of Canada's Greenest Employers (2016)

Here are some of the reasons why Emterra Group was selected as one of Canada's Greenest Employers (2016):

  • As part of its line of business, Emterra Group helps smaller communities across the country establish progressive waste and recycling programs, which includes supporting public awareness programs that feature guides and calendars to help communities without in-house expertise create programs that divert more waste from the landfill
  • Emterra Group processes and markets over 500,000 tonnes of recyclable materials annually through a network of 20 state-of-the art material recovery facilities -- the company sells its captured commodities to markets across Canada, the United States and Asia
  • Beyond its line of business, Emterra Group supports a number of community initiatives that highlight the importance of small steps in making changes, from supporting community gardens that offer locally grown food to building horticultural skills in an urban environment and supporting a cycling advocacy group in Winnipeg that encourages safe, two-wheeled commuting
