Recognized as one of Canada's Greenest Employers (2018):

Here are some of the reasons why EfficiencyOne was selected as one of Canada's Greenest Employers (2018):

  • EfficiencyOne practices what it preaches, encouraging employees to leave the car at home through a number of initiatives including discounted transit passes, an active carpooling program that includes preferred and discounted parking, and support for cyclists (indoor parking, access to a bike pump and repair tools, and shower facilities) -- all alternative transit commuters have access to a guaranteed ride program if ever required
  • EfficiencyOne seeks to reduce its own environmental impacts through regular waste audits, which has led to a disposable water bottle ban for events and meetings, the use of non-disposable cutlery and dishes, and the development of an onsite organic community garden
  • EfficiencyOne's unique line of business is designed to encourage fellow Nova Scotians to reduce energy consumption and make green living choices, offering rebates to residents for the purchase of energy efficient appliances
