Cascades is the proud recipient of a 2012 Green Supply Chain Award for its sustainable approach to its supply chain. It will be listed along with other award winners in the December issue of the American magazine Supply & Demand Chain Executive, specialists in the supply chain sector for over 10 years.
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. It also recognizes providers of supply chain solutions and services who assist their customers in achieving measurable sustainability goals.
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.
Closing the loop with Cascades Recovery
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. This integrated vision offers several advantages: 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. With this unique service, Cascades offers a smart way for clients to reduce their supply chain ecological footprint.
Encouraging good business practices among Suppliers
In 2012, Cascades began working with sustainable supply chain management platform company EcoVadis to survey and evaluate its suppliers' social responsibility performance using 21 parameters. The ongoing process highlights its suppliers' strengths and weaknesses, and assesses where there is room for improvement.
Awarding innovative suppliers
Since 2009, Cascades rewards the suppliers who take initiatives in sustainable development through developing and testing new technologies, products and procedures that ultimately allow Cascades to improve its environmental, social and economic performance.
