Environmental Policy

Environmental stewardship is a cornerstone of the NOONTIDE operating philosophy. It is a value embedded in our corporate culture, and a practice reflected in our environmental management system and our business processes. Not only do we manage environmental impacts resulting from self-performed and subcontractor-delivered services, we also manage our clients’ impact on the environment in thousands of buildings. We are the industry leader in workplace management solutions, and our focus on sustainable resource use, emission reductions, pollution prevention, climate change mitigation, and protection of biodiversity and ecosystems has helped to position us there.

NOONTIDE will meet or exceed all applicable environmental legislation as well as other associated environmental standards to which we and/or our clients subscribe. NOONTIDE and its Team Members are also committed to conducting our operations in a manner that minimizes any environmental impacts.

Our Team Members understand the importance of environmental and social responsibility at a personal and organizational level, and we foster this culture through ongoing training and education.

NOONTIDE is always aiming for continual improvement in our environmental practices. We set specific performance goals and targets, and provide our team with the resources to achieve these objectives. Our progress related to meeting these targets is reviewed and evaluated regularly, while our overall environmental program, policy and management system are reviewed annually. Our progress in attaining these goals is published annually in our Corporate Sustainability Report.

All Team Members are accountable for conducting work in a manner that focuses on pollution prevention to reduce any impacts on the environment.

Project Managers are accountable for the effective implementation of the environmental programs within their respective projects and for reporting on environmental performance.

The communication of this policy is paramount to its understanding and effectiveness. Therefore, we have taken measures to ensure that it is communicated to, and understood by, the Team Members of NOONTIDE and our subcontractors who are involved in the delivery of work on behalf of our clients. The Policy will be made available to all interested parties at


The intent of NOONTIDE’S Health, Safety & Environment Document for Contractors is to provide a written overview of NOONTIDE’s minimum policies and procedures with respect to Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S). This handbook does not address all EH&S issues which may arise during completion of work. Nor is this document intended to address or replace the Contractor’s duties and requirements with respect to regulatory compliance and best practices, and in conducting work in a manner that creates a safe and healthy environment for its own employees, NOONTIDE, building occupants and the public. It is the responsibility of the Contractor to operate in compliance with all applicable legislation and regulations that may pertain to its activities.

Compliance with this document does not relieve the Contractor from any liability that may result from the Contractor’s actions or from failure to act in accordance with applicable legislation.

Where applicable, NOONTIDE may provide to the Contractor additional EH&S policies and procedures, relating to specific site or job requirements, which the Contractor shall comply with. This document may be modified at any time at NOONTIDE’S discretion.


The purpose of this document is to assist contractors in understanding NOONTIDE’S minimum EH&S requirements while undertaking work at a NOONTIDE controlled space. This document is a general overview of NOONTIDE’S protocols and should be used in conjunction with the Contractor’s own environment, health and safety policies, procedures and programs. Contractors are responsible for controlling workplace activities and for maintaining and promoting a safe and healthy work environment. It is NOONTIDE’S expectation that the information in this document is communicated to all the Contractor’s employees and any of its subcontractors. As a large percentage of contract work is completed at non-NOONTIDE supervised locations, we expect Contractors to be conscientious of their EH&S practices and their reflection on NOONTIDE. In the event that the Contractor is unable to meet the requirements outlined in this document, the Contractor is to notify NOONTIDE immediately. Assistance in meeting the requirements will be reviewed on a case by case basis.


NOONTIDE is dedicated to becoming “best in class” with respect to EH&S. Our culture is one in which Environmental Health and Safety are more than words in our value statement, and they are integrated into our daily activities and are part of our culture.

Our Environmental Health and Safety Policies are located in Appendix A. These policies are reviewed annually. NOONTIDE maintains health and safety and environmental management systems.

Contractors will:

  • Be aware of NOONTIDE’S EH&S policies
  • Review with their designated NOONTIDE contact any applicable objectives, targets and environmental programs
  • Comply with NOONTIDE’S EH&S policies
  • Upon request provide evidence of competency and/or compliance
  • Understand the EH&S impacts related to contractor’s activities and be aware of the appropriate operational controls to address any areas of risk.


NOONTIDE reserves the right to audit the Contractor for its adherence to the EH&S requirements of the work being performed. An audit may include workplace inspections, visual observations, interviews and document review, including training records, certifications and EH&S related statistics. Action plans, including person responsible and timeline, are to be provided to the NOONTIDE contact for any observations noted.

All potential or existing dangers or hazards observed by the Contractor shall be reported to the designated NOONTIDE contact. Any danger or hazard observed beyond the control of the Contractor is to be reported to the designated NOONTIDE contact immediately and the Contractor is to avoid the hazard or danger until it is eliminated or controlled. The Contractor may not conduct any work that may result in a danger or hazard to people, environment or property. Where an existing danger or hazard is present, or where the Contractor reasonably believes that an imminent danger or hazard is present, the Contractor has the right to stop work so that the danger or hazard is eliminated or safe work practices are incorporated. For the purposes of this policy, a danger or hazard may include, but is not limited to:
