​TORONTO, Ontario—PCL Constructors Inc. has been named to the list of Canada’s Green 30, organizations whose employees are most positive about their record on environmental stewardship. The list was released April 28, 2011, by Aon Hewitt Associates, a global human resources consulting and outsourcing company. The list was compiled from employee feedback and categorized according to Hewitt’s Employee Green Index, which focuses on employers’ strategies, activities, and efforts to minimize the environmental impact of their operations, products, and services.  

As part of the 2011 Best Employers in Canada and Best Small & Medium Employers in Canada surveys, Aon Hewitt queried more than 130,000 employees at 250 organizations regarding their employers’ commitment to environmental stewardship. An average of 82 per cent of the employees in Green 30 organizations have a positive perception of their employers’ eco-friendly efforts.

“This acknowledgement is very good news, and is a tribute to the sustainable building practices and green initiatives we follow in all our districts,” says PCL president and CEO Paul Douglas. “In the twenty-first century, an environmentally responsible business model is proving integral to the success of organizations such as ours. Our employees have taken this to heart and are making us a Green leader.”
The Green 30 list appears in the May 9 edition of Maclean’s magazine.
Organizations that participate in the Best Small & Medium Employers in Canada (for those with 50 – 399 employees) or the Best Employers in Canada (400 or more employees) surveys are eligible for inclusion in the Green 30 list.
