BlackBerry Limited has been named as one of Canada’s Greenest Employers, for the sixth consecutive year, for 2021.

“BlackBerry is delighted to be recognized as one of Canada’s Greenest Employers,” said Neelam Sandhu, SVP and Chief Elite Customer Success Officer, BlackBerry. “We are committed to taking meaningful action to ensure our business practices and our platform enable a more sustainable and equitable world, for our stakeholders and the global community we are all a part of.  We are on track to be carbon neutral this year.”  

Now in its 14th year, Canada’s Greenest Employers is an editorial competition organized by the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project in partnership with The Globe and Mail. The editors evaluate and select the recipients based on four sets of criteria: unique environmental initiatives and programs developed; success in reducing their environmental footprint; employee involvement in programs and whether they contribute any unique skills; and whether their initiatives have become linked to the employer’s public identity and whether they attract new people to the organization.

“BlackBerry has established a culture of environmental awareness through our innovative sustainability initiatives which engage employees in a wide variety of ways with a view to making a difference in our local and global communities,” said Nita White-Ivy, Chief Human Resources Officer, BlackBerry. “This achievement would not have been possible without their support and commitment to fostering a cleaner, greener workplace, and world.”
