We’re Making a Real Difference!

“Our work makes a real impact. Water is the critical global issue this century. In less than 15 years, it’s predicted that nearly 50% of the world population will be under severe water stress. Demand for water is quickly outpacing supply for safe drinking water, agriculture, sanitation, power, industry, and transportation. Our AQUARIUS solutions turn massive volumes of data into environmental intelligence, helping organizations make better decisions, faster to ensure there is adequate clean water for a secure future,” shared David Ferguson, Vice President of Finance and Marketing.

“We’re also committed to reducing our own footprint at Aquatic Informatics, taking a company-wide approach to a greener future,” continued David. “We’re B Corporation Certified as well as Climate Smart Certified in recognition of our efforts to solve environmental problems. We’re also committed to local green programs, like the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup initiative led by the Vancouver Aquarium and WWF. A group of employees recently filled 14 large trash bags with litter they removed from local shores.”

We Have More Fun!

“Life is a little sweeter and a lot more fun at Aquatic Informatics,” said Que Sengmany, IT Systems Administrator. In addition to keeping IT systems running smoothly, Que regularly brings doughnuts to the office, announcing the treats with a joke in staff inboxes. Que is also an active member of the social committee at Aquatic Informatics, “We need a balance between healthy snacks and doughnuts – we like to call it the yin-yang of food. Approximately 58% of the world’s population spend one-third of their adult life at work, so being an active member of the social club, which we like to call “Life Aquatic,” makes us feel good knowing that we can contribute to the organization with fun activities that everyone and their families can enjoy. It helps to fill the gap between our annual “Summer Hawaiian BBQ” and the “Winter Holiday Party” with continuous fun. The social club has some great ideas for this year, but you’re going to have to come work with us to find out what they are and experience them for yourself!”
