What steps have been taken by CATIE to protect the environment in fulfilling orders placed through the Ordering Centre?
CATIE has engaged the services of St. Joseph Communications for all our distribution services.
In 2005, St. Joseph Communications' Ottawa facility became certified by the Environmental Choice Program - Environment Canada's ecolabelling program. Started by the Government of Canada in 1988, the Environmental Choice Program (ECP) is one of many ecolabelling programs around the world rewarding companies for their environmental leadership. To date, over 3,000 products and services have attained certification through the program.
To qualify for the program, a product or service must be made or offered in a way that improves energy efficiency, reduces hazardous by-products, uses recycled materials, is reusable or provides some other environmental benefit. The ECP provides consumers with a level of assurance that the product bearing the EcoLogo meets stringent environmental criteria, evaluated by a credible third party.
The program is internationally renowned because of the stringent certification process, which includes review of each applicant's product and process information, an examination of the company's assurance/quality control measures, and - where deemed necessary by ECP officials - an audit of the company's facilities for purposes of initial certification.
This certification demonstrates St. Joseph Communications' commitment to environmental responsibility and provides our clients with the reassurance that they are using products and services that do not harm the environment.
Visit the EcoLogo Program website for more information about the program.
