Emterra Group
Emmie Leung, founder and CEO of Emterra Group  

Recognized as one of Canada's Greenest Employers (2019):

Here are some of the reasons why Emterra Group was selected as one of Canada's Greenest Employers (2019):

  • Emterra Group recently partnered with The Natural Step Canada's Circular Economy Innovation Lab, a forward-looking initiative that brings public and private sector organizations together to develop products and services that aim to eliminate waste from supply chains -- the company recently added waste stream audit services in order to help all types of customers meet or exceed regulatory requirements, and is working with major consumer brands to help make them more sustainable
  • Emterra Group is helping to lead the way in capturing as well as converting "waste" into new products, from its tire recycling division to a dedicated liquids recycling division to new state-of-the-art single-stream collection programs that increase diversion rates for residential, commercial, industrial and institutional customers in Canada and the United States
  • Emterra Group has made significant infrastructure investments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from its fleet operations with compressed natural gas (CNG) trucks, representing over a third of its fleet, and has opened four CNG refuelling stations, which are available to the public and other fleet operators
Emterra Group's recycling facility in Brampton, ON produces over 18-million kilos of recycled crumb rubber annually, capturing steel, rubber and fibre from scrap tires through an emission-free process
