Recognized as one of Canada's Greenest Employers (2017)

Here are some of the reasons why Emterra Group was selected as one of Canada's Greenest Employers (2017):

  • Emterra Group made significant infrastructure investments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from its fleet operations, with over 200 compressed natural gas (CNG) trucks in operation, each producing up to 20 percent reductions in emissions -- the company also made significant investments in opening 4 CNG refueling stations which are open to the public and other fleet operators
  • As part of its formal "Community Care Program", Emterra Group created the "Make Your Contribution at the Curb" initiative, pledging $1 for every tonne of residential recycling collected -- donations are directed to local initiatives such as a $500,000 7-year donation commitment to the Niagara Health System in Ontario and over $15,000 donated to St. Joseph's General Hospital in Courtenay, British Columbia
  • As part of its line of business, Emterra Group helps smaller communities across the country establish progressive waste and recycling programs -- the company supports public awareness programs such as guides and calendars which help communities without in-house expertise create programs to divert more waste from the landfill
