Recognized as one of Canada's Greenest Employers (2021):

Here are some of the reasons why Emterra Group was selected as one of Canada's Greenest Employers (2021):

  • As part of its formal Community Care program, Emterra Group partners with local organizations to heighten awareness and increase access to resources for waste reduction -- such as the "Make Your Contribution at the Curb" initiative that features a $1 donation to a local organization for each tonne of material recycled by businesses and residences
  • Launched last Earth Day, Emterra's subsidiary Canadian Liquids Processors produced a new sanitizing solution (made with reclaimed liquids) to help essential businesses and organizations in their responses to the pandemic
  • Emterra Group has made significant infrastructure investments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from its fleet operations with compressed natural gas (CNG) trucks, representing over a third of its fleet, and has opened three CNG refuelling stations, which are available to the public and other fleet operators
