From TC Transcontinental
TC Transcontinental takes a bold step in becoming the first Canadian-based manufacturer to join the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s New Plastics Economy Global Commitment. Uniting organizations worldwide sharing a common vision of a circular economy for plastics, the Foundation is a global thought leader establishing the circular economy on the agenda of decision-makers across business, government and academia.

TC Transcontinental’s Commitment

TC Transcontinental is pledging, by 2025, for 100% of its plastic packaging to be reusable, recyclable or compostable and to achieve a 10% use of post-consumer recycled content on average by weight across all plastics in its product basket. Additionally, the Corporation commits to collaborating towards increasing reuse, recycling and composting rates for plastic in the communities where it operates.

“We want to leave behind the legacy of a responsible corporate citizen, mindful of how today’s decisions will impact our collective tomorrow,” explains François Olivier, TC Transcontinental’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “By joining the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s commitment, we are furthering our corporate social responsibility leadership to ensure that plastic is effectively managed from sourcing to end of life.”
