Cogeco and Its Employees Take Action for the Environment in 22 Communities Across North America
MONTREAL, Sept. 24, 2022 /CNW Telbec/ - Today, 480 Cogeco employees are once again putting down roots in their communities as the company holds its second 1Cogeco Community Involvement Day to plant trees and clean up trails and shorelines. This annual company-wide initiative across Ontario, Quebec and multiple states in the United States involves hundreds of Cogeco employees and supports 23 non-profit organizations in various local communities served by Cogeco.
In addition to actively participating in the development of its communities and taking concrete action for the environment, this day allows us to support the actions of various non-profit organizations, including Conservation Halton, Trees for Nipissing, Soverdi, the Trois-Rivières Sustainable Foundation, New London Trees, and One Tree Planted. These organizations work to protect, restore and manage natural resources in our communities.
"This day is a testament to our commitment to building a sustainable future, investing in local environmental initiatives to support our communities and promoting climate action. I was proud to join my colleagues on a day when our employees in Canada and the United States are mobilizing at the same time for a common cause," said Philippe Jetté, President and Chief Executive Officer, Cogeco. "At Cogeco, we are taking real, concrete steps to address the challenges of climate change, and have become the first Canadian telecommunications company to set an ambitious emissions reduction target for its operations that is consistent with the path to limiting global warming to 1.5°C."
