Cascades has won another award for its leadership in sustainability.

For the second year in a row, media company Corporate Knights named Cascades one of the world’s 100 most sustainable corporations.

The 2021 Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World ranking is the result of an in-depth analysis of international corporations with more than $1 billion in revenues.

Cascades rose to 17th place among the 8,080 organizations analyzed after being ranked 49th last year. Cascades also ranked third among the 13 Canadian corporations on the list.

“Being a part of this list means a lot to us,” says Mario Plourde, president and chief executive officer of Cascades, in a statement. “This recognition is the result of the tireless work of our employees who strive, day after day, to improve the well-being of people, communities and the planet by providing our customers with sustainable and innovative solutions that create value.”

Among the reasons for the win are the packaging company’s high percentage of “clean” revenues from the sale of eco-friendly products, and the company’s investments in sustainability, which serve to improve performance on indicators such as energy, greenhouse gas and water management.
