Green Initiatives

Green Initiatives - Two workers planting Green roof“Green” is the word on everyone’s mind these days, and Flynn is no different. We’re keenly aware that everything we do has an impact on the environment, and we’re always looking for ways to reduce our carbon footprint and promote sustainability.

In our office and in our field…

We’ve put policies in place that encourage our entire company to work in a “greener” way. We’ve instituted idle-free zones at our offices, many of our branches use hybrid vehicles, and we offer special parking spaces to employees who carpool or ride motorcycles. Our fabricating facilities recycle metal and aluminum, while our office staff embraces reducing our paper use and recycling. High-efficiency lighting and water systems in our branches also help us reduce our footprint.

In the Community

We’re a founding member of Green Roofs for Healthy Cities, an initiative that aims to increase the awareness of the economic, social, and environmental benefits of green roof infrastructure across North America and rapidly advance the development of the market for green roof products and services.  Flynn staff has been early adopters of their training and accreditation for green roof professionals.

We have been members of and involved with the Canadian Green Building Council (CaGBC) for many years.
