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, Canada Blood Services, National Shoreline Clean up, Big Bike for Heart & Stroke, Canadian Transplant Association, and Food Banks.
Associated Engineering is committed to reducing our carbon footprint, and has 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 in carbon offsets from two verified carbon retailers, Envirotrade and ClimateCare.
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.
