TORONTO, ON, April 20, 2012—PwC was selected by Mediacorp Canada Inc. as one of Canada’s Greenest Employers in 2012. This follows PwC’s most recent recognition as one of Canada’s Best Employers for New Canadians for 2012 and Canada’s Top 100 Employers for 2012, which represents the eighth consecutive year PwC has been selected for this prestigious award.
“Embedding good environmental practices into all of the firm’s operations is an essential component of our corporate responsibility initiatives,” says James Temple, Director of Corporate Responsibility, PwC, and Leader of the PricewaterhouseCoopers Canada Foundation. “At the core of our environmental programs is a network made up of 14 local environmental committees across 22 offices in Canada. This is entirely volunteer driven by our employees.”
Mr. Temple adds, “We’re extremely proud of this accomplishment. Our environmental committees help raise awareness about the important environmental issues at both local and national levels, as well as working tirelessly to inspire colleagues to become more environmentally and socially conscious.”
Some of the firm programs and initiatives that help identify PwC as one of this year’s Canada’s Greenest Employers include:
Now entering its fifth year, the Canada’s Greenest Employers competition is organized by the editors of the Canada's Top 100 Employers project. This special designation recognizes the 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.
