5 Electrical Industry Members Among Canada’s Greenest EmployersCanada's Greenest Employers, now in its 10th year, recognizes employers that lead the nation in creating a culture of environmental awareness in their organizations.

These employers have developed exceptional earth-friendly initiatives, and are attracting people to their organizations because of their environmental leadership. Among this years honourees are five members of Canada’s electrical industry.

This award grew out of two remarkable speeches given by Al Gore and Robert F. Kennedy Jr. at annual conferences for the Canada's Top 100 Employers project in 2006 and 2007. Each employer is evaluated by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers in terms of (1) the unique environmental initiatives and programs they have developed; (2) the extent to which they have been successful in reducing the organization's own environmental footprint; (3) the degree to which their employees are involved in these programs and whether they contribute any unique skills; and (4) the extent to which these initiatives have become linked to the employer's public identity and whether they attract new people to the organization. Here’s who won this year.
