The way we choose to operate impacts future generations.
This is why we undertake to reduce negative impacts while enhancing positive contribution to the environment in our operations. Recognizing that Canada’s adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, we wish to advance all relevant Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including:
We believe that these goals provide an overarching framework for us to enhance the value of corporate sustainability, strengthen stakeholder relations, keep pace with policy developments, and drive sustainable growth.
Statement of Principles
We exercise due diligence along our supply chain to promote sustainable consumption and production practices. This includes qualifying our key suppliers against prominent sustainability risks, including conflict minerals, REACH, RoHS and CE compliance, and their commitment to corporate sustainability.
Sustainable Use of Resources
We strive to adopt sustainable best practices and reduce our environmental footprint. For instance, we are committed to a “paperless” policy to reduce paper waste. We also implement recycling or safe disposal programs for most materials used in our production processes, including scrap metals, electronics, and hazardous waste. We are also in the process of cutting down on single-use supplies and adopting energy efficient alternatives in our office.
Engaging in Community Response
We are always on the lookout for opportunities to engage in local efforts and seek innovative solutions to protect environmental resources. Our team actively participates in local sustainability events and initiatives, such as shoreline cleanup and community gardening.
Building Sustainability Culture
With the goal of cultivating a culture of sustainability on a personal and organizational level, we enable and empower employees to act sustainably. Each department has a dedicated Sustainability Committee member responsible for providing guidance and recommendation on sustainability strategies and action plans. They also monitor and report the progress and outcomes of the changes recommended. One of our current team initiatives is to integrate sustainable strategies into company events hosted throughout the year, such as replacing disposables with reusables.
Incentivizing Action Across Value Chain
As a vital member of the satellite communications supply chain, we believe in our power to incentivize action through knowledge sharing and collaboration with stakeholders. We work collaboratively with our partners to integrate sustainability strategies and drive best practices across our value chain.
