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

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

  • Symcor supports unique "nooks" in common areas where employees are free to drop-off used books, movies and music, allowing them to share and recycle used items as well as enjoy something new -- additionally, IT employees recently established a dedicated Tech Hub Library, which features technology related books for exchange
  • Symcor supports a variety of in-house environmental initiatives including an extensive recycling program to capture non-conventional recyclables, from flip-flops to candy wrappers to wine corks (offered in partnership with TerraCycle), to an internal elastic band and paper-clip collection and reuse program
  • Symcor and its employees are active in communities across the country, supporting numerous environmental initiatives every year including the Calgary Pathway and River Cleanup, Acres for Atmosphere, Meadows for Monarchs, Centre for Affordable Water and Sanitation Technology, and the WWF's Great Canadian River Shoreline Cleanup
