Dentons is proud to be recognised as one of Canada’s Greenest Employers for five consecutive years. The firm continues to work with our environmental champions across our Canada platform to build a culture of environmental awareness, enhancing how we affect change.
Canada’s Greenest Employers is an editorial competition organised by the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project, designed to celebrate organisations who have developed exceptional sustainability initiatives.
“We are excited about the significant steps forward we have made as one of Canada’s green employers,” said John Esvelt, Chief Risk Officer. “Our people are passionate about environmental sustainability, and we’re proud of our collective efforts over the past five years to reduce our footprint across a number of processes throughout the firm.”
Dentons continues to identify innovative opportunities and promote wellness through eco-conscious programs to support the Firm’s shared value of minimising our environmental impact across our offices and within our communities. Recently, the firm moved to fully digital pay statement distribution system, removing the need to print pay statements for all 1300+ team members across Dentons Canada, reducing our carbon footprint. Here are some other ways Dentons is making our planet a little greener:
- Eliminated our daily overnight interoffice mail services moving from daily deliveries to twice a week across Canada, reducing our environmental footprint by 60 percent
- Equipping our team members with technology and replacing paper-driven processes with technology enabled solutions to increase efficiency and minimise paper consumption
- Providing internal learning sessions on the merits of plant-based eating from a certified Plant Based Nutrition expert
- Supporting a local packaging-free grocery store as part of the Vancouver Safety, Workplace Improvement, Sustainability and Health (SWISH) committee’s environmental wellbeing series
