KINGSEY FALLS – as a leader in the field of recycling, the quebec-based company Cascades is part of the new list with the 50 best corporate decisions for the planet.
This list was launched to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Day the Earth organizations Earth Day Canada and Earth Day Initiative, in collaboration with the media to Corporate Knights.
The decision of Stunts to promote the recycled fibres in the manufacturing of its products has allowed him to be named to this prestigious list.
“In 50 years, we could not doubt that the simple idea of diverting the material from landfill sites to the value one would do the same way, has launched Alain Lemaire, co-founder and chairman of the board of directors of Cascades, on Thursday, by way of a press release.
“By restoring several lives in the matter, we reduce the pressure on natural resources and reduce waste. Even if the idea was not popular at the time, I am proud that we have been faithful to our values and our ideals, and we will continue to be.”
“Even today, 83 % of the material used for the manufacture of our products is the result of the recovery and 77 % of our residues are valued,” said Mario Plourde, president and chief executive officer of the company.
