Carbon Neutral Company
We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint, and have been a carbon neutral company since 2009. We have established policies, initiatives and systems, such as videoconferencing, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. To offset greenhouse gases produced by day-to-day business practices, we have invested in carbon offsets from a verified carbon retailer, ClimateCare.
Associated Engineering has a long history of giving back to the communities in which we work and live. Our corporate charities include the United Way, Canadian Cancer Society, Juvenile Diabetes, and Movember. In addition, staff across the company participate in a number of charitable events for organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, Canstruction, Canadian Blood Services, Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup, Big Bike for Heart & Stroke, Canadian Transplant Association, Water for People, and Food Banks.
Eco Action Committee
Each of our offices has an active Eco Action Committee, whose role is to improve environmental awareness, reduce office waste, and improve energy efficiencies. Some of the committee’s initiatives include office composting and recycling programs, annual Shoreline Cleanup events, and staff seminars that share green techniques and tips from their professional discipline.
