Expert and Eco-Friendly

We Take Mother Nature to Heart

The three R's of environment - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: For PolyExpert, this has become the standard to follow in order to shrink our manufacturing cycle’s environmental impact and carbon footprint. Over the passing years, we have taken several actions to pursue this sustainable development initiative.

PolyExpert ÉCORESPONSABLE

Today, we are very proud to have obtained our ECORESPONSIBLE Certification - Level 1. Commitment * supported by Ecocert Canada. This approach is part of a process of continuous improvement and innovation. On a day-to-day basis, we adopt and promote responsible practices, we strive to leave the smallest ecological footprint possible and affirm our leadership through concrete and judicious actions.

RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

We have designed and put to market films that are biodegradable and compostable for the food packaging industry as well as mulching films made with corn starch.

We are also working on downgauging the films we use to make plastic shipping sacks or multiwall paper bags, with an underlying objective to maintain the same quality parameters, but at reduced costs and with a smaller environmental footprint. 

RECYCLING

RECYCLING

Several recycling initiatives have been implemented, including the following:

  • recovery, then recycling and reuse, of production-generated scraps;
  • metal and steel parts triage so that third parties can recover and recycle them;
  • bundling of all cartons, to be later re-converted by a local recycling company;
  • recovery of our oil residues and empty spray cans by a certified specialty company.

REHABILITATION

A large part of our obsolete information technology hardware is handed over to a company that recycles them and gives them a new lease on life.

Ink cartridges not recovered by their manufacturers are sent to the Mira Foundation or Ecocart, who recondition, refill and resell them; this provides them with a source of financing.
