Here are some of the ways we're looking to reduce our environmental impact

Who doesn’t love a little friendly competition, especially when a greener planet is the ultimate prize?  

Altis is proud to announce that we’ve joined almost 200 other companies across Canada in the federal government’s Net-Zero Challenge, a national initiative that encourages businesses of all kinds—large and small, manufacturers and professional services firms alike—to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions to net-zero by 2050.  

As a committed participant, we’re doing all we can to reduce our environmental impact, with the goal of reaching the Diamond tier in this challenge—the highest ranking of all. Over the coming months, we’ll be reporting on our progress. Stay tuned!

Now, you might wonder how a recruitment firm like ours, with a team of 200 team members working onsite and from home offices nationwide, could reduce our emissions. We’re not a manufacturing business, so what exactly are we reducing?  

Here’s a snapshot so far:  

  • As a remote-by-choice organization, many of our team members choose to work from their home offices, enabling us to reduce some of our office space (and therefore, our energy consumption), while reducing our emissions related to commuting.  
  • We work in buildings that have switched to energy-efficient heating and cooling systems, committed to a 75% reduction in waste and use LED lighting throughout.  
  • We’ve installed energy-efficient appliances in all our offices.
  • Our team members work on laptops and monitors that automatically switch to energy-saving mode when not in use.
  • And more.

As a human-centric organization, we seek to foster a healthy and happy workforce and community. We care about people AND the planet and are always looking for ways to do better by both.  

For Canada to reach net-zero emissions by 2050 will require collaboration and innovation across all areas of society, including the private sector. This work is essential for Canada to remain competitive in an increasingly low-carbon global economy, and we’re pleased to do our part!
