- Designation based on business operations, waste, water, and energy practices
- CAE Healthcare will hold the title of Certified Green Business Partner until 2025
SARASOTA, Fla., Aug. 24, 2022 /PRNewswire/ – CAE Healthcare today announced it was named a Certified Green Business Partner by Sarasota County, Florida, where CAE Healthcare’s U.S. headquarters are based. The green designation is awarded to businesses that operate in an environmentally responsible manner as determined by a rigorous assessment.
“We are honored to be named a Certified Green Business Partner by our local government, reinforcing our commitment to sustainability,” said Jeff Evans, Interim President, CAE Healthcare. “Reducing our environmental impact is important to our customers and integral to future generations. This is just one step on that journey, as we will continue to identify and implement sustainable practices throughout the workplace.”
To be certified as a green business partner, businesses must verify conservation practices in four areas: business operations, solid waste management, water conservation and energy consumption. In addition to CAE completing an extensive application, the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences conducted an assessment. The school recognized CAE Healthcare’s recycling initiatives, company policies and the use of energy-conserving equipment. CAE Healthcare will hold the designation until 2025.
CAE began its corporate social responsibility journey six years ago, with a focus on ethics and integrity; community and environment; people and safety; and innovation and customer experience. CAE achieved carbon neutrality in 2020, becoming the first Canadian aerospace company to reach that goal. CAE strives to be a sustainability leader, working with industry partners to reduce emissions and adopt waste-reducing measures.
