Our Environment

A sustainable approach to how we do business.


Reducing our carbon footprint

We strive to be the best service provider in the markets we serve. We believe this includes operating with the highest standards to ensure the protection of employees, the public, and the environment. Our team shares the common goal of reducing waste, continuously improving and innovating, and operating with a focused effort in reducing our carbon footprint.

Putting sustainability into action

 

 

Investing in our future

 

We are investing in research to determine improved ways to manage our business, and to address ecological concerns.

Understanding

 

We are identifying and understanding more about our impact through analytics and partnerships with environmental agencies. 

Education

 

We are educating our employees and vendors about environmental responsibilities and concerns so we can continuously improve.

Measure to improve

 

We are keeping track through regular reporting and third-party verification processes to ensure we are meeting and exceeding environmental regulations.


Strong partnerships

 

We have been a certified SmartWay partner since 2014, and have recently joined the Green Freight Assessment program. 

This Government of Canada initiative aims to reduce greenhouse emissions by assisting transportation partners in four key areas:

•  Reviewing their fleet’s performance
•  Implementing operational best practices
•  Installing fuel saving technologies and equipment
•  Purchasing alternative fuel vehicles


Working alongside highly experienced partners allows us to implement new technologies, improve our efficiency, and reduce our overall carbon emissions.
