Supporting the Next Generation of Environmentally Responsible Entrepreneurs



Cascades is committed to encouraging environmentally responsible entrepreneurs. This is why the company supports Mouvement, a competition created in 2016 to recognize impactful, responsible business strategies. Each year, the team behind the initiative looks for the best socially and environmentally impactful companies in Québec. Mouvement offers targeted networking, cash awards, and sometimes even services and products, not to mention exposure to Novae’s network of influencers in the positive and engaged economy.



Through these competitions, Cascades has forged relationships with such star companies as Loop Mission, Bécik Jaune, Urban Food Ecosystems and Muses Urnes Design.
