For the tenth year in a row, Keilhauer has been recognized as one of Canada’s Greenest Employers by the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project.

This competition acknowledges employers who have developed and implemented exceptional sustainability initiatives and are leading the country in creating a culture of environmental awareness in their organizations.

Each employer is evaluated by the editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers in terms of the unique environmental initiatives and programs they have developed, the extent to which they have been successful in reducing the organization’s own environmental footprint, the degree to which their employees are involved in these programs and whether they contribute any unique skills and the extent to which these initiatives have become linked to the company’s public identity, attracting new employees and clients to the organization.

Some accomplishments that earned Keilhauer the title include their launch of Vagabond and Dally, two carbon neutral ottomans and Nova, a sustainable, zero-waste textile made from 33 per cent recycled yarn, their continued commitment to Environmental, Societal and Governance Transparency through the publication of the annual Keilhauer Corporate Sustainability Report, their ongoing blanket-wrapping program, which ships new products to customers in reusable blankets instead of cardboard boxes and more.

“For over 40 years, Keilhauer has been an industry pioneer when it comes to the principles of reduce, reuse, recycle and renew,” said Meghan Sherwin, president of Keilhauer. “We are honoured to be celebrating ten consecutive years on this incredible list of Canadian companies that are leading the way to create a greener future for our country.”
