Symcor Inc.
Symcor employees took part in a tree planting event at the Toronto Zoo  

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

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

  • Symcor employees have been volunteering for more than a decade with the Toronto Zoo's "Acres for Atmosphere" tree planting initiative, and more recently, its "Meadows for Monarchs" pollinator planting program -- while paused last year, the company donated its allocated funds to the zoo to help cover ongoing animal care costs
  • Symcor supports a variety of in-house environmental initiatives, including an extensive recycling program to capture non-conventional recyclables, from phones to candy wrappers to wine corks (offered in partnership with TerraCycle and Cascades Recovery+)
  • Varying by location, Symcor encourages alternative modes of getting to and from work, including secure bike parking, EV parking, preferred parking for carpoolers and transit discounts -- and also offers a variety of alternative work options to help employees work from home
Symcor employees practice sustainable living, hosting a Waste-Free Potluck as part of their Earth Hour activities
