Toronto, ON (22 Apr. 2014) – SAS Canada, the leader in business analytics, today was named one of Canada's Greenest Employers for 2014. SAS Canada was recognized for its commitment to environmental sustainability, its LEED Silver certified headquarters, and its earth-friendly employee initiatives. The list is published by Mediacorp Canada Inc.
"SAS Canada prides itself on our eco-conscious corporate culture," said Carl Farrell, President SAS Canada and Executive Vice President SAS Americas. Our environmentally friendly LEED Silver Certified Toronto Headquarters is only a fraction of what makes SAS "green". At the heart of our environmentally sustainable business practices are employees who demonstrate why green initiatives are important to them and software tools that help organizations manage their environmental footprint."
Launched in 2007, the Canada's Greenest Employers competition is organized by the editors of the Canada's Top 100 Employers project. This special designation recognizes the employers that lead the nation in creating a culture of environmental awareness in their organizations. These employers have developed exceptional earth-friendly initiatives -- and are attracting people to their organizations because of their environmental leadership.
Earlier in 2014 SAS Canada celebrated another successful year, increasing software revenue by 6 per cent over 2012. To support its ongoing growth, SAS will continue hiring for the 25th consecutive year, investing in talent in sales and services, increasing its workforce by more than 9 per cent across the country.
SAS Canada's environmentally friendly Toronto headquarters was LEED Silver certified in 2008 and the company continues to generate public recognition for its leadership in corporate sustainability practices. SAS Canada was honoured with the Award of Excellence – energy conservation – at the 2009 Green Toronto Awards. The headquarters was also the winner of the Real Estate Excellence Award (REX) for Office Development of the Year in 2005.
