Certification is very broad in scope, encompassing the environment, the economy and society at large. From the outset of the process, Cuisines Beauregard had to engage in a serious reflection and identify the main issues it wanted to address.
Participation in the certification process attests to the company’s determination to promote responsible conduct of its day-to-day activities through environmental stewardship and collective efforts aimed at improving quality of life.
The ECORESPONSIBLE™ Program includes four levels:
ECO-RESPONSIBLE Certification: A first milestone
In April 2019, Cuisines Beauregard was very proud to obtain Level 1 ECORESPONSIBLE Commitment Certification. This is a pivotal stage in preparing an organization for change and offered opportunities to engage in some deep soul-searching within the company; it was also a chance to raise awareness with the various stakeholders, establish a strategic diagnosis and develop a concrete, environmentally responsible plan based on the main objectives we had defined.
A first milestone has now been reached, and we are rigourously pursuing our overall sustainable development goals. The next phase is already under way and will lead to Level 2 ECORESPONSIBLE Performance Certification. During this important stage, our actions will be focused on reaching the targets set by the company’s internal committee. Assuming that everything goes smoothly, Cuisines Beauregard is set to obtain Level 2 Certification in 2020.
