Overview

Bet on Green is our flagship environmental program, where we take action on our own and in partnership with others to reduce the environmental impacts of our products and operations. We also try to promote sustainability concepts and engage suppliers, communities and individuals in environmental initiatives as a way of driving change on a broader scale.

Community Partners

Partnerships with communities and credible organizations are a big part of Bet on Green.
Our sponsorships have included:

WWF

WWF CANADA

We sponsored and participated in events like Earth Hour and the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup. We were also a sponsor of WWF-Canada’s Living Planet@Work Program, which provides tools and resources to support our Bet on Green program. These tools and resources are also made available to other organizations who want to implement or are implementing their own sustainability programs.

Nature Conservancy of Canada

Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC)

NCC is Canada’s leading national land conservation organization. We financially supported and participated in its Conservation Volunteer Program. In 2017, we sponsored NCC’s NatureTalks event series, in which NCC staff shared their conservation stories across the province as a way of inspiring and motivating others to be champions for nature.

Our sponsorships allowed the above non-profits to implement activities aimed at raising awareness about environmental issues and implement actions to mitigate them.
