Our Sustainable DNA
Cascades’ mission is to “contribute to the well-being of people, communities and the planet.”
To manifest this commitment and continuously improve, the company created a sustainable development plan with ten ambitious goals for 2016–2020.
reduction in the intensity of our GHG emissions since 1990
times less water used to manufacture our products than the average in the Canadian paper industry*
times less energy used to manufacture our products than the average in the Canadian paper industry*
A Circular Company
Did you know that Cascades was a pioneer of the circular economy? The company has been demonstrating the potential of all kinds of residual materials since 1964, recycling and transforming them into new products. This logic continues to underpin our business model today.
Cascades, A Responsible Citizen
Wanting to contribute to the development of the communities where it operates, each year Cascades makes a commitment to some 300 organizations supporting environmental and social causes. This enables it to maintain lasting partnerships in its key sectors.
