Protecting the environment is in Cascades’ DNA, which is why its partnership with the David Suzuki Foundation since 2016 only makes sense!
One of the main collectors of recycled fibres within North America, and Canada’s largest collector and recycler of paper waste and cardboard, Cascades has been a pioneer of the circular economy since 1964, long before businesses began incorporating environmental principles into their practices. 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, including the David Suzuki Foundation since 2016.
In addition to hosting several events with David Suzuki and Severn Cullis-Suzuki, Cascades and its employees are also very involved in the Butterflyway Project, a volunteer-led movement to bring nature home to neighbourhoods and to plant gardens filled with native wildflowers that support local pollinators, like wild bees and butterflies. They are even planning to plant a pollinator garden at each Cascades Recovery facility across the country and USA – a total of 17 sites!
Cascades is a fantastic example of what businesses can accomplish when they set their mind to contributing to the well-being of people and the planet.
The company is currently implementing its fourth sustainability action plan, with targets in four pillars: respectful of the planet, solutions driven, community minded, and people focused. Cascades is a fantastic example of what businesses can accomplish when they set their mind to contributing to the well-being of people and the planet, and we look forward to further developing our partnership with them.
