Rogers Communications celebrates Earth Day as one of Canada's Greenest Employers in 2013

Rogers Communications celebrates Earth Day as one of Canada's Greenest 
Employers in 2013 
TORONTO, April 22, 2013 /CNW/ - Rogers Communications, Canada's leading 
diversified communications and media company, has been named one of Canada's 
Greenest Employers for 2013 by Mediacorp Canada Inc. The award recognizes 
Rogers environmental leadership in the workplace and commitment to motivating 
employees to participate in meaningful environmental change. 
"We are honoured to be recognized as one of Canada's Greenest Employers," said 
Nadir Mohamed, president and chief executive officer, Rogers Communications. 
"We take pride in actively engaging Rogers employees in environmentally 
responsible programs aimed at reducing our environmental footprint." 
Rogers Voluntary Environmental Steering Committee, as well as individual 
employee efforts, led a number of initiatives to drive environmental 
leadership in the workplace. This past year, the organization took action to 
reduce energy and its associated greenhouse gas emissions, and increase 
recycling. The highlights include: 


    --  A reduction in paper consumption thanks to less printing
        internally and more customers registering for online billing;
    --  The diversion of electronic and IT waste from landfills through
        programs such as our Phones for Food program;
    --  The continued use of trucks with GPS technology to monitor
        engine idle times to improve fuel-efficiency;
    --  The implementation of energy efficiency programs across our
        operations; and
    --  Programs across our one million square foot Brampton office
        which subsequently won the Civic Action Alliance's Race to
        Reduce Award for Action and Innovation.

In 2013, Rogers has plans to pilot a waste management program at select sites 
that will further reduce office waste through increasing its employees' 
recycling efforts.
