'Top Green Supplier', 'Intellichoix award' and 'Energia Award' in the field of technological innovation - these are three of the awards that the Canadian paper, tissue and board manufacturer Cascades has recently received. To support its green image, Cascades has decided to preferably work with suppliers that adopt the same philosophy and pay special importance to sustainability. As part of this initiative, Voith Paper has received on February 2nd from Mr. Alain Lemaire, President of Cascades, the 'Sustainable Development Supplier Award 2009' which was awarded for the first time.
To evaluate suppliers, the Global Reporting Initiative, an international network for establishing sustainability standards in companies and organizations, was used. The questions covered the categories of 'product characteristics', 'environment', 'social and working conditions', 'economy' and 'transparency and reporting'. Voith Paper's technology is "a key element that helps us lower our operating costs by extending the life of the fabrics and related equipments." That's how Louise Fillion, Purchasing Manager, explained the decision to name Voith Paper as the first recipient of this award.
