Message From the President

Our corporate social responsibility journey began when we adopted our environmental policy in 1993, paving the way for numerous achievements. We then formalized our commitment by outlining a structured approach implemented through three-year plans. This allowed us to focus on the issues that were most relevant to our operations while setting related objectives on which we aim to progress over the short term.

Our 2013-2015 corporate social responsibility plan has come to an end and we are proud of our journey and of our accomplishments. Our 2015 Corporate Social Responsibility Report reviews the gains we have made over the past three years.

But we feel that we can continue to improve. With this in mind, we have developed our next corporate social responsibility plan, in effect until 2018, by establishing quantifiable targets that are in line with our strategy and by taking into account input from our stakeholders. Reflecting a spirit of continuity, this plan addresses topics relating to employees, communities and the environment, and has been expanded with the inclusion of objectives for prosperity.

Once more, we commit to working toward the objectives we have established.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our stakeholders who took the time to share their comments with us and are accompanying us on this journey in order to drive sustainable results.

François Olivier
President and Chief Executive Officer
