Building on a long-term commitment to sustainability
Some companies’ sustainability commitments depend on which way the wind is blowing.
Conversely, our sustainability commitment dates back more than 20 years. It’s deeply embedded in TC Transcontinental’s fabric and continues to evolve into a multidimensional corporate sustainability and social responsibility strategy. As your supply chain partner, you can rest assured that sound sustainability practices continue in our facilities.
Our corporate sustainability priorities revolve around four pillars: the environment, employees, communities, and prosperity. We measure our performance each year and share the results in our TC Transcontinental Sustainability Reports, a document proudly published annually since 2010.
Our strategy for sustainability in packaging is built around three pillars:
- Creative Collaboration
We believe in stakeholder engagement and we know that solving sustainability challenges requires innovation. Therefore, we are committed to collaborating toward finding long-term solutions. Our commitment includes R&D with suppliers, customer engagement, partnerships, and memberships to associations.
- Product Responsibility
We are responsible for the impacts of the products we manufacture. We are committed to providing our clients and the community with safe and performant packaging. Our areas of focus are food safety, control of substances, quality management, and product traceability.
- Circular Approach
We follow eco-design principles; an approach to designing products which considers the environmental impacts of a product during its whole life-cycle, from sustainable sourcing, to efficient manufacturing, and end-of-life management.
