Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) 

We believe that we have a responsibility to serve others. As a Top Employer and an Employer of Choice™, we believe that our team can achieve significant reach and impact in both our work-world and society-at-large. Our vision is that our team will not only engage their working lives doing something significant but that they’ll also be engaged in making the world a better place.

As entrepreneurs, we seek opportunities to employ our talents in solving natural resource management challenges. Every day we help clients find the balance between social, environmental and economic challenges resulting in better outcomes for all.

We are also very passionate about offering support to the next generation of environmental professionals. We do this by providing monetary donations and taking part in student mentorship opportunities. We are actively involved in supporting the University of Alberta’s Forestry Society and ECSA Student’s Society, and students in the NAIT Forest Technology program.

To address needs at the local and global level, our approach to “giving back” involves both charitable giving and direct involvement in our local community.

Our philanthropic efforts are guided by three core objectives

We believe that charitable giving is an investment in children, youth and their communities. We have created a strategy that is focused on improving the lives of young people in need – at home, and globally.

 

Help the Poorest of The Poor
Focus on Young People
Promote Educational Opportunities

Throughout the year, we host different types of fundraisers to raise money for desks at these schools. Past fundraisers include pig roasts, matching donation drives, and an initiative that saw our CEO, Tom Grabowski, shave off his 40-year-old moustache!

We provide our time free of charge to help with communications activities like creating the annual Classrooms for Africa report and also play a role in fundraising and collaborating with other like-minded businesses to extend the organization’s reach and effectiveness throughout sub-Saharan Africa.

Growing the Urban Forest
Growing the Urban Forest

We are a longtime supporter of ‘Root for Trees’ - Edmonton's tree planting initiative. Each year, a group of volunteers from Silvacom takes part in the program by heading out and planting trees around the city of Edmonton. As a company heavily involved in the forest industry we are very passionate about helping to grow our local urban forest.


In-House Donation Drives
In-House Donation Drives

One way we like to give back is by having in-house donation drives to support local and worthy causes. Examples include summer BBQs with an entry ‘fee’ of a food bank donation, winter coat drives for ‘Coats for Kids and Families’, toy drives for Santa’s Anonymous, baby formula drives for the Bissell Centre, and toiletry drives for the Wings of Providence Second Stage Shelter.


We find the best and keep the best, so our clients
always get the best!
