Sustainability Culture at Enviro-Stewards:
Employees are encouraged to pursue a healthy work / home life balance whereby they have the time and encouragement to pursue local and global initiatives to contribute to sustainable communities. The company closes its office one day a year so that the employees, clients and suppliers can volunteer their time towards a community based initiative. Lastly management clearly communicates to all employees that flexibility of working hours or leaves of absence are available for those wishing to partake in volunteer and charity ventures that pursue sustainability goals.
- Enviro-Stewards’ sustainability goal is to avoid 500 tonnes of GHG emissions for every tonne of GHG generated by our operations. They will accomplish this by reducing their own emissions per employee by 80% and helping their clients avoid at least 20,000 tonnes/year of GHG emissions.
