We have many thanks to offer, not the least of which is to our customers for giving us the support we needed to assemble and build the talented team this award is being received by. My heartfelt thanks goes out to Integrated Sustainability’s unique team of people, they are our real differentiator in the market place” says Stuart Torr, founder and President of Integrated Sustainability. He adds, “I’ve never been prouder to work beside such a dynamic, talented, and entrepreneurial group.”
Oksana Kielbasinski, Director of Sustainability and Risk for Integrated Sustainability ads “When Stuart founded Integrated Sustainability he envisioned a more holistic approach to providing water management solutions, one which was not commonly provided by engineering consulting firms in Canada. Three and-a-half years later, sustainability is not only a part of our name, it is the cornerstone of the way that we think, communicate, design/deliver projects, and measure success.”
The approach taken by the Integrated Sustainability team often helps clients harness the wealth of expertise and ideas within their own companies, providing a critical mass of expertise to develop and realize these ideas to viable and executed solutions. This ability to listen and incubate ideas already within clients is often the unique element that has caused Integrated Sustainability to receive a high percentage of sole sourced work.
“With Stuart’s leadership, Integrated Sustainability is making a difference in industry and providing a rewarding organization for talented people to be a part of,” adds Jon Fennell, VP of Geosciences & Water Security.
