Our focus is on the future

Through our approach, we aim to take a leadership role by advancing our understanding of sustainability data capture and reporting, developing strategic partnerships and implementing best practices to reduce the impact of our operations on the environment and make a positive contribution to the communities in which we live and work.

Reducing our impact on the natural world

Our engagement with environmental initiatives extends not only to the immediate impact of our organization, but also to enabling our clients to meet their environmental performance objectives. Working collaboratively with clients and suppliers, we strive to be best in class at reducing waste; managing use of water, energy and raw materials; and protecting biodiversity wherever we operate.

Dexterra Group’s approach to environmental management is reflected in our integrated management system and meets the stringent legislative requirements in the jurisdictions in which we operate and the ISO 14001 Environmental Management standard.

Supporting the communities in which we live and work Dexterra Group plays a vital role in communities and economies across Canada, and we are committed to contributing positively to the places in which we live and work. Our focus areas for community engagement, which serve as the foundation for our outreach and support programs, include mental health and safety, protecting the environment, supporting Indigenous communities, supporting military families, supporting at-risk children and youth and supporting new Canadians.
In alignment with our values, building transparent, lasting and mutually beneficial relationships is important to the success of our business.
