SAS Canada, the leader in business analytics, has been honoured for its initiatives in environmental sustainability by both the City of Toronto and Maclean’s magazine.
The City of Toronto named SAS as runner up for the 2009 Green Toronto Award for Energy Conservation at a public ceremony on April 23, held at the Direct Energy Centre in Exhibition Place. SAS was chosen as one of three finalists due to the results achieved by its LEED-certified Toronto headquarters. In 2008, the SAS Canada building consumed 62% less energy than the equivalent typical Ontario office building.
“When we broke ground on our headquarters in 2005 we didn’t set out to build Canada’s first LEED-certified newly constructed commercial office building – our goal was to build the best working environment for our staff and tenants, and to integrate into the community,” said Carl Farrell, Executive Vice President, SAS Americas. “But we are an employee-driven culture and green initiatives are an important priority for our staff; so it was common sense for us to take a leadership role in reducing our environmental footprint.”
