Surrey Schools is among just 85 employers to be recognized nationally as one of Canada's Greenest Employers for 2020.
This marks the fourth year the district has been selected by the editors of the Canada's Top 100 Employers project at Mediacorp Canada Inc., which recognizes companies and organizations across the country annually.
"This recognition is incredibly rewarding, as it highlights our long-term, ongoing efforts to ensure eco-friendly and sustainable practices are always top of mind – whether in the board room or in the classroom," says Laurie Larsen, chair of the Surrey Board of Education. "We are particularly proud of this honour, and certainly don't mind receiving it year after year!"
Employers are evaluated for:
Among numerous other initiatives, the judges noted Surrey Schools "teaches students to live sustainably, partnering with the City of Surrey to integrate energy, water and waste management concepts into grade school curriculums."
The district was also lauded for championing a number of energy-producing features at sites (such as solar walls to preheat outdoor air, geothermal heating/cooling and roof solar panels); hosting an annual energy conservation competition among secondary schools; establishing comprehensive recycling and waste diversion initiatives; and much more.
Surrey Schools was also among Canada's Greenest Employers in 2019, 2017 and 2016. The honour comes just months after being named one of B.C.'s Top Employers for 2020.
