For the third year in a row, Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) was named one of Canada’s Greenest Employers (2022).
CVC was recognized for its many green initiatives, including a commitment to making its vehicle fleet fully electric by 2035, an employee uniform recycling program and organic composting. CVC is committed to reducing its carbon footprint and investing in low impact development approaches to sustainably manage stormwater on its properties.
CVC’s head office includes a LEED gold-certified building, new electric vehicle charging stations and a permeable parking lot that allows rainwater to filter naturally into the ground. In 2022, the organization will be installing an innovative “smart blue roof” to manage stormwater onsite.
“As a leading environmental organization, we are proud to be recognized as one of Canada’s Greenest Employers for the third year in a row. This award reflects the accomplishments made by our dedicated staff and our continuing commitment to protect and restore the local environment.”Quentin Hanchard, Chief Administrative Officer at CVC
In addition to environmental initiatives, CVC continues its commitment of giving back to the community. Each year, staff volunteer and raise money to support charitable organizations like the Eden Food Bank, Ontario SPCA and Humane Society, and the Peel Children’s Aid Society.
CVC continues to support residents, businesses and partners in government with vital services like land use planning, environmental stewardship, flood forecasting and warning, environmental inventory and monitoring, environmental education, source water protection, outdoor recreation and climate change adaptation and mitigation.
