Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the world today without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. This includes the preservation of a healthy natural and man-made environment, a prosperous economy and a vibrant and egalitarian society.
This approach is being adopted by more and more governments and organizations that want to be part of a greener and more equitable future.
Adfast is a leader among companies with a commitment to sustainable development. In this article, discover the three main areas of focus for Adfast’s initiative to achieving sustainable development goals.
1 – Obtaining ISO 14001 certification
The ISO 14001 international standard specifies the requirements for an environmental management system that can be used by an organization to improve its environmental performance. Organizations of any size that wish to manage their environmental responsibilities systematically while contributing to sustainable development can choose to implement some or all of the recommendations in the standard.
However, only organizations whose environmental management meets all the requirements of this standard can obtain ISO 14001 certification, a remarkable feat that Adfast is in the process of achieving. This demonstrates the importance of environmental sustainability to our company and the measures and initiatives we are taking to improve it.
2 – Significantly reducing our environmental footprint
At this very moment, a review and analysis of the environmental footprint of Adfast’s operations is being conducted by industry experts.
To make this work as effective as possible, our company’s processes are reviewed under six main categories, all of which have an impact on our environmental footprint:
- Energy consumption
- Water consumption
- Origin of raw materials
- Products, packaging and handling
- Residual materials (wastewater, emissions, pollution…)
- Transportation, handling and storage
Based on the data that will be obtained at the end of this study, Adfast will be able to set specific reduction targets in each of these categories.
This study is being conducted in partnership with Investissement Québec, as part of the Compétivert project, whose slogan clearly illustrates its objective: For a more productive, innovative and green Quebec.
3 – Adfast’s products are designed to be more eco-friendly
In addition, Adfast’s focus on aluminum foil packaging over plastic cartridges is helping to reduce waste.
