We are committed to embedding environmental stewardship across our business activities. We manage our environmental risk through policies, programs and targets aimed at reducing our environmental footprint, particularly around the priority areas of energy and associated greenhouse gas emissions and waste.
In 2017, we reduced our energy use by 136,000 GJ, which would power approximately 4,000 homes for an entire year!
= 125 homes
Responsible management of materials we use and the waste we produce is important to our operational efficiency and the environment. Our Get Up and Get Green program eliminated garbage bins at employees’ desks and encouraged them to use centralized sorting bins, with the aim of diverting at least 70% of waste. We continue to monitor performance across our office, retail, and Rogers Centre properties through our three national waste management vendors and other vendors responsible for managing our telecom and IT-related products and confidential paper.
We reduced our greenhouse gas emissions by 11,000 tonnes last year – representing a 5% reduction of our total GHGs since 2016 and the equivalent of taking 2,500 cars off the road for a year.

We are committed to improving our energy efficiency and reducing our greenhouse gas emissions across our operations. We continue to invest in programs that reduce GHG emissions, particularly as they relate to energy use. We also evaluate and prioritize the initiatives that have the greatest impact and return on investment, with focus on energy use, fleet management, and waste.
Amount of waste collected through Rogers workplace transformation efforts. Of this waste, 96% has been diverted from landfill through recycling, reusing, or donating to local charities.
= 49 elephants
Rogers is committed to reducing energy use by 10% and greenhouse gas emissions by 25% compared to 2011 levels, by 2025
In 2018, Rogers was selected as one of Canada's Greenest Employers for the sixth year in row.
The equivalent to the amount of paper we saved in 2017 – a 48% paper use reduction from 2016.
