Red River College has been named one of Canada’s 50 Greenest Employers for 2011…
 
In an email from RRC’s  president explained what all the excitement was about…and WHY we all got water bottles!  

“We’ve received this prestigious honour thanks to our efforts to reduce the environmental impact of College operations, incorporate sustainability into our research and academic programming, and engage staff and students in more eco-conscious behaviour.

 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 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.

RRC is one of only two Manitoba organizations to be named to this year’s Greenest Employer list (along with New Flyer Industries), and one of only five post-secondary institutions across Canada.”

I must admit it is really neat to be employed in a place that is so environmentally aware!
Congrats! Red River…

Keep up all your hard work!
