  • Veridian encourages alternative transportation where possible including participation in the online Smart Commute carpool (with reserved parking for carpoolers), a transit subsidy program, bicycle parking, and a head office bike lending program -- employees are also welcome to park and freely charge their electric car in the company's new solar-powered car port
  • The newest addition to Veridian's head office building was constructed to meet the LEED Silver certification standard -- the company also maintains a 400 panel solar installation that occupies 45,000 square feet of the building's rooftop, generating enough power for approximately 20 average households
