Environics Research’s Climate Action Journey

As we work with and advise clients who want to do better, we recognize the need to commit to corporate action ourselves. We are in a strong position – with the right help and information – to make a difference and contribute to a brighter future for our planet.

Our Sustainability Journey

 

From its very founding in 1970, Environics has strived to maintain values which are consistent with the highest level of social responsibility – long before the point when this notion was “on trend.” This is demonstrated through the research we do, as well as through our long-held corporate value of environmental responsibility.

Environics Research is now one of 250+ Green Economy Leaders across Canada working to measure our environmental impacts, set reduction targets, and publicly report on progress towards these goals. We’re proud to be a part of this growing community, striving to make business better, together.

2022

The Climate Crew

The Climate Crew

Environics launched a committee focused on climate change, driven by the vision to be a resilient and positive force in our future altered by climate change. The committee is focused on three pillars: mitigation (measuring and reducing Environics’ emissions), adaptation (protecting Environics and its employees from the changing climate), and finding ways to have a positive impact outside of Environics. Environics Climate Crew was founded.

2005

Powered by Renewable Energy

Our Toronto headquarters is powered by renewable energy through Bullfrog Power. We partnered with Bullfrog Energy as an early investor and user when it was first established in 2005. Environics was an active participant in a sustainability group sponsored by our former landlord, which led office building initiatives related to energy efficiency and reduction, water conservation, waste management and recycling, and green cleaning.

1987

The Environmental Monitor

Environics Research launched The Environmental Monitor, the country’s first ongoing syndicated study to measure and track Canadians’ attitudes, perceptions and actions on this topic. Since then, we have developed what collectively constitutes by far the largest body of public opinion research on environmental issues in Canada (covering the full gamut including air, water, oceans, freshwater, forestry, wildlife, fisheries, energy, resource development, climate change, waste management, and economic trade-offs). Through this work, we have an in-depth understanding of the urgency of climate action and nature protection, as well as the barriers facing people and organizations that are looking to make change.

1980

Public Transit Benefits

We have been a strong supporter of the urban and environmental benefits of public transit dating back to 1980 when the company first put in place its transit pass subsidy.
