We strive to demonstrate environmental leadership in everything we do

At Emterra we are committed to operate in a manner that promotes environmental and social sustainability across all of our divisions and locations.

While our business is faced with many important sustainability issues, we see: waste prevention, resource conservation, climate change and health, safety and wellness as our priorities. And, we advance environmental and social sustainability as a service provider, as an organization, as an employer and as a member of the community.
Wherever possible, we source and promote alternative goods, services, processes and partnerships that contribute to environmental and social sustainability.
