Cascades, deemed most responsible company by Quebecers

KINGSEY FALLS, QC, Nov. 24, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - Cascades Inc. (TSX: CAS), a leader in the recovery and manufacturing of green packaging and tissue products, is pleased to be recognized, for the sixth consecutive year, as the most responsible organization and brand in the eyes of Quebecers.

Cascades did very well in the 2016 Baromètre de la consommation responsable, a study released by the Observatoire de la consommation responsable (OCR) of UQAM's École des sciences de la gestion. This report presents major consumption trends while describing purchasing motivators and barriers. Since 2011, the study has been identifying organizations and brands Quebecers see as being responsible. Cascades topped the list once again this year.

"I am proud that Cascades is once again seen as a responsible leader," said Mario Plourde, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cascades. "Moreover, with a view to always doing more for the planet, for prosperity and for our partners, we recently launched a third sustainable development plan with new targets for 2016–2020. Such large-scale initiatives undoubtedly enhance Quebecers' positive perception of our company," he continued.

Founded in 1964, Cascades produces, converts and markets packaging and tissue products that are composed mainly of recycled fibres. The Company employs 11,000 women and men, who work in close to 90 production units in North America and Europe. With its management philosophy, half a century of experience in recycling, and continuous efforts in research and development as driving forces, Cascades continues to deliver the innovative products that customers have come to rely on. Cascades' shares trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol CAS.
