2017 Canada's Greenest Employers
For the first time, Hatch has been named one of Canada’s greenest employers by the editors of the Canada's Top 100 Employers project at Mediacorp Canada Inc. This special designation recognizes employers that lead the nation in creating a culture of environmental awareness in their organizations and are developing exceptional earth-friendly initiatives, all while continuing to attract people to their organizations because of their environmental leadership. 


Hatch embraces the mantra of leaving it better than we found it. Harry Kim, managing director, Environmental Services at Hatch explains, “This award is a terrific reflection of our commitment to sustainable development. Whenever we embark on a project, we consistently think about the regional economic evolution for the community. We believe in stimulating, growing, and diversifying economies where we operate so that we can stand by our mission statement, and build practical solutions that are safe, innovative, and sustainable.” 


Richard Yerema, managing editor, Canada’s Top 100 Employers project, adds, “This year’s winners aren’t afraid to address the adverse impacts of their operations and are charting the course for others in their industry.” 


Steadfast in its effort to revolutionize and rethink technology, last year Hatch accomplished some great work, including: completing the optimization phase at a pilot project using its patented, in-situ solvent extraction process; saving 2.4 million liters of diesel fuel each year with the design of an integrated 3 MW wind turbine and energy storage network, and; designing a small modular reactor—an economically viable, safe, and carbon-free alternative to the diesel historically required to power remote communities. 


Mr. Kim continued, “We’re not just a supplier; we’re a collaborator and critical contributor to the conversation. The ultimate goal is to leave a lasting philanthropic legacy in the communities we’re a part of—one greater than the project itself.”
