Member Profile

WalterFedy (WF) has an internal Sustainable Advisory Committee and a Community Initiative Committee with a mandate to develop various initiatives that have a positive impact on employees, the local community and environment. 

The Hamilton location continues to track employee commuting habits on a weekly basis to understand the impact on the companies carbon footprint and propose targeted internal initiatives for reduction. Initiatives have included “bike-to-work week” and potential corporate membership to Sobi Hamilton bike share. 

WF Hamilton is a recently established location within the past two years and during that time has teamed up with the Port Authority for community garbage clean-up in local parks in support of City Kidz, taken part in a community build for Habitat for Humanity and organized a holiday food drive for Hamilton Food Share.

Sustainability Leadership Program Updates

2020 Annual Impact Report

In 2018, WalterFedy committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 40% over 2017 levels, which means we need to reduce business travel and commuting. We are actively encouraging employees to commute less, or more sustainably using bikes or transit, and to leverage communications tools to reduce the need for on-site meetings. 

Recently we purchased enough carbon offsets to counter our 2019 GHG emissions. Our contribution will fund two projects in our province. The first is the Niagara Escarpment Forest Carbon project, which promotes and maintains ecosystems throughout the Escarpment. The second is the Ontario Biodiversity Afforestation Project, which re-establishes long-lived forest species on land formerly reserved for agriculture.

2019 Annual Impact Report

In 2017, Walterfedy joined the SBI. They will complete Verisae Carbon Accounting Tool training as a next step and will include a new employee that performs data modeling. Walterfedy has an internally developed software that tracks employee commute data, and they have been working with their landlord to obtain utility data to contribute to a GHG baseline. 

Walterfedy would like to use point of use electrical meters to track equipment to support reliable estimations in their current building. Their experience in the SBI so far has created awareness of data constraints and about how they would set up monitoring for success in the future.
