Caring for our Community
Supporting Edmonton's Food Bank
We asked the people of our organization to choose a charity that we could support throughout the year, and the overwhelming vote went to Edmonton's Food Bank - an organization that supports thousands of people every month by providing food, hot meals and snacks; with approximately 40 per cent of clients served under the age of 18.
During the Christmas season, we also challenge each other to bring in most-wanted food bank items, and are overwhelmed by the response of our APS teams - annually providing more than three additional truckloads of food for this worthwhile community organization.
APS cares about our environment. A number of programs around the Corporation ensure we enable one another to do our part to make the world a healthier place to live, work and play.
In addition to bottle/can/household recycling stations and confidential recycling bins, our building takes advantage of geothermal heating, we encourage carpooling and transit use (through our ETS@Work program) and we encourage employees to come up with solutions of their own: this past year included two employee-driven initatives to reduce paper use.
