As part of our commitment to pay more attention to what we do, we go beyond mere functionality and product design. Meeting new heights in sustainability involves putting actions together for a nearby future, for both our social and environmental impact. We believe that by investing in our community and our people, we can reduce our ecological footprint.
At the heart of our philosophy is the belief that environmental progress can only be achieved by rethinking our relationship with the world and helping to conserve our natural environment. We continually strive to increase the efficiency of renewable resources, such as water, to reduce greenhouse gasses and our carbon footprint. We reduce, recycle and reuse raw materials and waste to provide a better future for generations to come.
We use hydro-electricity and natural gas as sources of energy. Clean energy that does a world of good to everyone!
We have implemented plant-wide practices which redirect all cardboard, paper, plastic, metal, yarn and industrial wastes for reuse or recycling, keeping more than 80% of it from landfill.
We have introduced a growing assortment of fashionable carpet styles made with solution-dyed nylon in order to significantly reduce the water, chemicals and energy required for the standard carpet dyeing process and to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.
To reduce energy consumption in our facilities, we are gradually replacing fluorescent tube lights with new LED lights.
Having our community at heart also means we try to make a difference all around us. More than anything, we love to take projects that you believe in and bring them to life. We also like to involve our team members in various social activities while creating a better work environment. What more can we say? We like to share and give back as much as we can.
We recognize the importance of our social responsibility and that is why we support several charitable organizations such as United Way, Women's Resource Center, Breakfast Club of Canada, Lions Club, etc.
