SUDBURY, Ontario – Bestech has been named in Aon Hewitt’s list of The Green 30 of 2013. This list recognizes companies whose employees are most positive about their record of environmental stewardship. Bestech ranked as number 27 on this year’s list, which appears in the May 20 issue of Maclean’s magazine.
Bestech was acknowledged due to its innovative software solutions, NRG1-ECO™ and AQM™. These products were developed to help global mining operations address the challenges related to energy management and air quality monitoring.
As a result of Bestech's participation in the 2013 Best Small & Medium Employers in Canada study, the company was automatically eligible for consideration in the list of The Green 30. Maclean’s indicated that over 200 organizations were eligible, but those that have been recognized as The Green 30 have met the standards of the most rigorous judging panel – their employees. All data is independently compiled by Aon Hewitt, Maclean’s research partners on The Green 30.
Aon Hewitt explained that six criteria help determine which companies make The Green 30 list: working to minimize the impact of its operations, products/services on the environment; considering long term social, environmental and economic impacts in decision making; disclosing its environmental practices; supporting the development of products or services with positive environmental benefits; effectively communicating the actions it is taking to minimize its impact on the environment; and has strategies and activities that are environmentally responsible.
