Sustainability at Matrix

Environmental, Social, Governance

A Growing Matrix in a Sustainable World

Environmental, social, and governance stewardship has become a driving force that is causing organizations around the globe to evaluate the impacts of their businesses and opportunities to contribute as responsible corporate citizens. We have chosen to look carefully at our own operations to identify areas where we can improve our sustainability as a business.

Our ESG Objectives

Partner with Clients that we can expand our positive impact through environmental stewardship, while growing our business with new and existing clients.

Diverse and engaged teams

…so that we are an employer who can attract and retain top talent who are motivated and empowered to do their best work.

Enriched communities

…so that we earn our reputation as a good neighbour that people want working in their communities.

In 2022, we considered inputs from our employees, our board of directors, our clients, and our financial institution and used the framework outlined by the Sustainability Accounting and Standards Board (SASB) to identify those topics that are most material to our business and our clients.

ESG Initiative Areas

Health and safety

Community relations and local investment

Diversity, equity, and inclusion

Greenhouse gas emissions

These ESG areas are closely aligned with our values and focusing on each will help us in achieving our overarching goals related to our clients, our people, and our communities.

Health and Safety

Why is this important to Matrix?

Ask anyone what makes Matrix amazing, and they will resoundingly tell you it’s the people. Then ask those people why they work with Matrix, and they will tell you about the positive impacts their work has on people and communities.

We choose every day to work safely because we care about the people we work with, the environment and the communities where we work and play. Our ability to protect health and get everyone home safely each day is a key measure of our success. We value health and safety above all else.

Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Why is this important to Matrix?

At Matrix we develop mitigation strategies that reduce potential environmental and socio-economic effects from development projects and operations. But we are more than service providers to our clients, we are professionals with a passion for the environment and we want to work at a company that understands the impacts of our operations on the environment and is committed to exploring ways to reduce those impacts.

Developing a baseline for Matrix’s GHG emissions and empowering our people to be a part of the GHG reduction initiative is aligned with our value to do the right thing and demonstrates that Matrix is committed to making a difference.

Community Relations and Local Investments

Why is this important to Matrix?

Matrix is privileged to be able to work and live in diverse communities across Canada, and our presence in those communities provides for innumerable positive outcomes for our employees and their families. At our core is the desire to do the right thing, and for Matrix that translates into doing our best to enrich the communities that enrich us. In living our values and giving back to our communities, we aim to have a positive effect on future generations and earn our reputation as a good neighbour that people want working in their communities.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Why is this important to Matrix?

Regardless of our different backgrounds and lived experiences, respect and dignity are fundamental human needs. At Matrix, we are advancing initiatives to understand and remove the barriers that prevent people from bringing their authentic selves to the workplace. We aspire to genuinely celebrate the unique traits our colleagues, empathize with experiences that are different from our own, and do what we can within our spheres of influence to mitigate bias and enhance equity.

Progressing diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace is not simply a moral responsibility; it’s the smart thing to do. A diverse mix of voices generates better strategy, better risk management, better discussions and better outcomes. Fostering diversity leads to improved innovation, helping us better serve the needs of our clients, our people, and our communities.
