Canada’s Sustainability Boom – 18 companies you may want to work for

Canada is a global leader in sustainability.  Canada has passed a revenue neutral carbon tax. Toronto is making investments to decarbonize its economy and infrastructure with contract preferences for  companies with low emissions and help reduce greenhouse gases while improving public health, economic prosperity and social equity.  The city has a 25-year plan that looks closely at storm water run-off, protecting adjacent waters from urban pollution.  Sustainability is a clear mandate for the Canadian Space Agency.  CSA has been monitoring the ozone, mapping geological features and determining the environmental impact of mineral exploration for decades.

Hundreds of start-ups and companies focused on sustainability call Canada home, especially in Toronto.  New sustainability practitioners can find ground floor opportunities. Established practitioners are finding their leadership, management and executive roles expanding.  Canada’s Greenest Employers are leading the way.
