SaskPower is so proud to be named among Canada’s Greenest Employers for the first time ever in 2023. SaskPower’s commitment to minimizing its impact on the world, and providing a sustainable workplace, is being noticed.

A top workplace in today’s world is about more than the job. It’s even more than the pay and benefits. Many job seekers want a workplace that demonstrates values that align with their own. This includes a commitment to sound environmental practices and sustainability.

Canada’s Greenest Employers are chosen annually by Mediacorp Canada Inc. These companies represent employers who show that they are about their environment and make the effort to demonstrate this commitment not only externally, but to their workforce.

Why was SaskPower Chosen?

We know the work we do affects our environment. And we know our employees care about that. That’s why we have plans in place to reduce that impact, including:

We are looking to lead the industry toward a net zero energy future. This award recognizes those efforts and confirms we are heading in the right direction.

These efforts are not only in response to regulations, but more importantly, the feedback and growing expectations of our customers that we provide clean, reliable and competitively priced power today and in the years to come. It also signals to potential employees that we are a company that values the environment we work in and that we strive to provide a workplace that fits those values as well.
