As part or our commitment to pay more attention to what we do, we go beyond functionality and product creation. Meeting new heights in sustainability involves putting actions together for a nearby future, for both our social and environmental impact. We believe that 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 through rethinking our relationship with the world and contributing to the conservation of our natural environment. We are continually striving for greater efficiency from renewable resources, such as water, in order to reduce greenhouse gases as well as our carbon footprint. We reduce, recycle and reuse raw material and waste to provide a better tomorrow for future generations.
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, sheer lint and industrial wastes for reuse or recycling, keeping more than 80% of it from landfill.
Water consumption reduction
We have introduced a growing assortment of fashionable carpet styles manufactured with solution-dyed nylon in order to significantly reduce the water, chemicals and energy required in the usual carpet dyeing process and decrease our greenhouse gas emissions.
To reduce the energy consumption in our facilities, we are gradually replacing the fluorescent tube lighting fixtures with new LED-type fixtures.
Having our community at heart also means we try to make a difference all around us. We take projects that you believe in and bring them to life. We love that more than anything. We also like to involve our team members in various social activities while creating a better work environment. What can we say? We like to share and we give back as much as we can.
United Way Centraide
We recognize the importance of our social responsibility and that is why we give our support to several charities such as United Way. United Way tackles major social issues and implements winning strategies to fight poverty and exclusion. Since 2012, as a result of multiple fundraising campaigns, we have donated more than $10,000. This amount includes contributions from employees and Beaulieu. United Way is helping to meet the basic needs of communities’ most vulnerable people, giving every Canadian the opportunity to realize a better future.
