For Manitoulin, being corporately responsible extends beyond any terminal or local office to include its surrounding communities and those who live within. Therefore, caring for the communities in which we travel is just as important as our environmental impact upon them. We strongly believe that building a corporate responsibility program that embraces people, land and stakeholders, makes for a better Manitoulin as well as for a better world.
Red may come to mind when you think Manitoulin, but so should green.
For Manitoulin, being environmentally responsible is top priority. We are constantly doing our part in developing sustainable measures so that our environment can be passed down to the next generation. By establishing a division within the company which monitors and carries out our environmental programs, we are developing initiatives for the years ahead.
The below are just some of our latest accomplishments in this field:
- We’re proud to report that we reduced our emissions of particulate matter (PM) by 37% and Nitrous Oxide (NOx) by 45%.
- We only use ultra-low sulphur diesel fuel in our engines
- The average age of our power fleet is 2.9 years; we are committed to replacing older engines with new ones.
- Manitoulin Transport is SmartWay certified in the U.S. and Fleetsmart certified in Canada.
Manitoulin provides its services via a workforce that is reflective of the multicultural society in which we live. Everyone at Manitoulin is treated with the respect and the dignity they deserve.
Manitoulin encourages an open and positive work environment where ideas are always welcomed and where no one is discriminated because of race, sex, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, age or religion.
