TORONTO, April 22, 2013 /CNW/ – Rogers Communications, Canada’s leading
diversified communications and media company, has been named one of
Canada’s Greenest Employers for 2013 by Mediacorp Canada Inc. The award
recognizes Rogers environmental leadership in the workplace and
commitment to motivating employees to participate in meaningful
environmental change.

“We are honoured to be recognized as one of Canada’s Greenest
Employers,” said Nadir Mohamed, president and chief executive officer,
Rogers Communications. “We take pride in actively engaging Rogers
employees in environmentally responsible programs aimed at reducing our
environmental footprint.”

Rogers Voluntary Environmental Steering Committee, as well as individual
employee efforts, led a number of initiatives to drive environmental
leadership in the workplace. This past year, the organization took
action to reduce energy and its associated greenhouse gas emissions,
and increase recycling.  The highlights include:

  • A reduction in paper consumption thanks to less printing internally and
    more customers registering for online billing;

  • The diversion of electronic and IT waste from landfills through programs
    such as our Phones for Food program;

  • The continued use of trucks with GPS technology to monitor engine idle
    times to improve fuel-efficiency;

  • The implementation of energy efficiency programs across our operations;
    and

  • Programs across our one million square foot Brampton office which
    subsequently won the Civic Action Alliance’s Race to Reduce Award for
    Action and Innovation.

In 2013, Rogers has plans to pilot a waste management program at select
sites that will further reduce office waste through increasing its
employees’ recycling efforts.¬†
