Clintar is proud to be one of the first recognized Canadian landscape and snow removal corporations to obtain its Corporate Social Responsibility Practitioner (CSR-P) certification. Acquiring the CSR-P certification has provided Clintar with the international support and knowledge to improve and examine sustainability principles in our products, services and key areas of business.



Smart Irrigation, Soil and Water Conservation Advocate


Clintar is the exclusive Canadian distributor for UgMO, the pioneer in underground and root zone monitoring and management. UgMO measures soil moisture and temperature at the root level in real time, up to six times a day, so landscapes will never be over or under-watered. UgMO has proven to be revolutionary in providing substantial savings in time, money and resources for numerous properties across North America.



Battery Operated Equipment


As one of our main goals to be leaders and innovators in the landscaping management and maintenance industry, we are constantly researching the most environmentally efficient practices and equipment to reduce our carbon footprint and emission of fossil fuel into the environment.

We are one of the first landscape management and maintenance companies to launch the use of battery-operated equipment in Alberta, Canada and encourage all of our franchises to use battery-operated equipment when possible.
