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

Here are some of the reasons why Hemmera Envirochem Inc. was selected as one of Canada's Greenest Employers (2017):

  • Hemmera Envirochem's employee-led environmental committee focuses on three areas to address the company's environmental footprint: waste production, greenhouse gas reductions and energy use -- much of the committee's ongoing work consists of monitoring and measuring the company's impacts, creating awareness and educating employees on how best to minimize their impact, and reporting on the company's overall progress
  • As part of its in-house Earth Day celebration, Hemmera Envirochem asks employees to renew their green resolutions, reminding everyone to never buy bottled water again, brew your own coffee, use reusable bags, reduce paper towel use, use a bicycle for short trips, and eliminate the use of phantom power by unplugging unused electronics and turning off power bars
  • Hemmera Envirochem introduces new employees to the company's focus on reducing its environmental impacts through an orientation program managed by the Environment Committee -- and of course, as an environmental consultancy, the firm works to help other businesses and organizations mitigate their own environmental impacts
