In 2016 WSP (Kitchener branch) focused on commuting as a means to reduce their emissions and also to engage their employees. They signed up for a car share membership and encouraged employees to use these vehicles for business trips in order to conduct commuting in a more sustainable manner. They also hosted a ‘Passport to Commuting ‘ event for employees in order to educate on and encourage them to track their commuting data and utilize low-carbon transportation.
A waste audit was conducted, as well as an e-waste drive for employees. WSP also hosted a waste management ‘Lunch ‘n’ Learn’, which also educated employees on waste reduction initiatives that can be taken in the work place and at home.
