Perkins+Will has been named one of Canada's Greenest Employers for the fifth consecutive year. Announced recently in The Globe and Mail, the Greenest Employers Award recognizes employers with progressive environmental programs and earth-friendly policies that actively involve their employees. This distinction follows on the heels of the firm being named one of B.C.’s Top Employers for 2013, which honours British Columbia employers that offer exceptional places to work.

A few highlights for Perkins+Will being selected as one of Canada’s Greenest Employers include:

  • Offsetting transporting and carbon emissions using the “Climate Smart” tool
  • Providing transit subsidies and secure bike storage with shower facilities for its employees to encourage alternative modes of transportation
  • Achieving the first LEED Platinum certified multi-family residential building in North America and the first LEED Gold certified new building in Canada
  • Having two projects currently registered with the International Living Future Institute’s "Living Building Challenge,"  a standard that ensures buildings have a net positive impact on their surroundings

Congratulations to Perkins+Will!
