Recognized as one of Canada's Greenest Employers

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

  • 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 (CAWST), Living Planet@School, and the World Wildlife Fund's Great Canadian River Shoreline Cleanup -- the company also offsets emissions from its print operations through the use of Bullfrog Power
  • 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) -- the company also provides a place for employees to recycle their old eyeglasses through the Lions Club RECYCLE for Sight program
