FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 6, 2014
ECO Canada is recognizing this year’s top Canadian organizations who demonstrate environmental leadership by employing certified Environmental Professionals (EP).
Certified EPs are Canada’s most experienced and knowledgeable professionals who have been standardized on a national level. EPs exist across diverse industries and organizations across the country.
Organizations with certified EPs on staff demonstrate the highest level of commitment to the environment as they employ environmental experts that are experienced, knowledgeable and stay current with industry practices and standards.
The EP certification is awarded based on the evaluation of an individual’s competency level as compared to the National Occupational Standards (NOS). These standards were developed as a definitive guide of the skills and knowledge required for practitioners to perform environmental work within their specialized fields, such as sustainability, energy, water quality, and policy and legislation.
