Analytics software vendor SAS Canada today was named one of Canada’s Greenest Employers for 2016. The firm was recognized for its commitment to environmental sustainability, its LEED Silver certified headquarters, and its “earth-friendly employee initiatives. The list is published by Mediacorp Canada Inc.
“Our environmentally friendly LEED certified headquarters is only a fraction of what makes SAS green,” said Cameron Dow, president of SAS Canada. “SAS employees fuel our eco-conscious corporate culture through various green initiatives and our customers benefit from our software tools that help organizations manage their environmental footprint.”
Launched in 2007, the Canada’s Greenest Employers competition is organized by the editors of the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project.
According to a release, the “designation recognizes the employers that lead the nation in creating a culture of environmental awareness in their organizations. These employers have developed exceptional earth-friendly initiatives — and are attracting people to their organizations because of their environmental leadership.”
SAS Canada’s Toronto headquarters was LEED Silver certified in 2008 and was also the winner of the Real Estate Excellence Award (REX) for Office Development of the Year in 2005.
