Retail giant Walmart Stores Inc. has solicited the services of Cascades in its quest to make its paper products more environmentally friendly.
According to a report by the Montreal Gazette, Cascades received a request from Walmart to join an advisory board, as the only Canadian supplier and the only major recycler in the project.
“They have liked the way we do business, the way we present our (corporate) image and our products,” the Gazette reported CEO Alain Lemaire as saying.
The Gazette further confirmed that in the month of October, Walmart announced it would be upping the ante in terms of holding its suppliers responsible for environmental and social standards.
