KINGSEY FALLS, QUEBEC — Cascades is the proud recipient of a 2012 Green Supply Chain Award for its sustainable approach to its supply chain, according to a press release.
The Green Supply Chain Award recognizes companies who make sustainability a core part of their supply chain strategy and work to achieve measurable sustainability goals within their own operations and supply chains, the release stated.
According to the release, Cascades was recognized for its closed-loop business process with its Cascades Recovery Division, for its collaboration with sustainable supply chain management company EcoVadis and for its annual presentation of the Sustainable Supplier Award honoring its distribution partners' role in advancing sustainability.
Through Cascades' Recovery division, the company collects a significant amount of its raw material such as paper and cardboard from its clients, sorts it and sends it to be manufactured into a new product before selling it back, the release noted.
This integrated vision offers several advantages, including better quality control of raw materials, the production of "new" transformed products, a recycling service for clients and the strategic benefits clients reap from working with a corporate citizen, the release added.
