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

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

  • 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
  • As part of its line of business, Emterra Group introduced progressive waste and recycling programs to smaller communities across the country -- Emterra supports public awareness programs and helps communities without in-house expertise create programs to divert more waste from the landfill
  • Emterra Group made significant infrastructure investments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from its fleet operations with compressed natural gas (CNG) trucks (representing over a third of their fleet, each truck reducing emissions by 20%) -- and has also opened four CNG refuelling stations, which are available to the public and other fleet operators
