Dec. 1, 2016 – For the sixth consecutive year, Cascades has been named the most responsible organization and brand in the eyes of Quebecers.

Cascades did very well in the 2016 Baromètre de la consommation responsable, a study released by the Observatoire de la consommation responsable (OCR) of UQAM’s École des sciences de la gestion. This report presents major consumption trends while describing purchasing motivators and barriers. Since 2011, the study has been identifying organizations and brands Quebecers see as being responsible. Cascades topped the list once again this year.

“I am proud that Cascades is once again seen as a responsible leader,” said Mario Plourde, president and CEO. “Moreover, with a view to always doing more for the planet, for prosperity and for our partners, we recently launched a third sustainable development plan with new targets for 2016–2020. Such large-scale initiatives undoubtedly enhance Quebecers’ positive perception of our company.”

Founded in 1964, Cascades produces, converts and markets packaging and tissue products that are composed mainly of recycled fibres.
