RIDEAU RECOGNITION SOLUTIONS IS AWARDED THE ETERNE AWARD FOR ENVIRONMENTAL CONTRIBUTIONS

Montréal, Québec, May 2, 2016 — Rideau Recognition Solutions, a leader in employee recognition solutions, has been selected as the recipient of Tree Canada’s 2015-2016 Eterne Award for exemplifying superior environmental citizenship.

The Tree Canada award is named “Eterne” to acknowledge the vitality and everlasting nature of trees and forests. It is awarded to companies who consistently show financial support and demonstrate enthusiasm for Tree Canada’s cause, marketing and brand recognition.

Since partnering with Tree Canada in 2010, Rideau Recognition Solutions has planted over 100,000 native trees throughout Canada and has made major financial contributions to Tree Canada’s “National Greening Program”. Rideau Recognition Solutions innovated the use of tree planting as a key component in many of its employee recognition programs.

“The creativity and leadership which Rideau Recognition Solutions has shown typifies what it means to be an Eterne Award winner”, says Michael Rosen, Tree Canada President. “Because they are experts in their field, recognizing Canada’s leading recognition company may not have been the easiest thing to do, but as soon as we show the wonderful messages we receive from employees for the trees planted in their name, and mention that Rideau Recognition Solutions has been responsible for the planting of thousands of native trees throughout Canada, selecting Rideau Recognition for this award was easy ”, Rosen said.

“We are honored to have received this prestigious award for something that is so important, yet comes very naturally to our company”, says Rideau Recognition Solutions CEO, Peter Hart. “We have a long-standing tradition of using materials wisely, conscious recycling and disposing of them properly. The planting of trees as a part of employee recognition programs illustrates how we’ve been able to weave together actions that make both employees and our Earth feel good.“

Mike Rosen, President of Tree Canada, will be presenting Rideau and its CEO, Peter Hart, with the actual award on June 16th at the Rideau office in Montreal.
