Being a good corporate citizen: A priority
At Waterville TG, we sincerely believe in the importance of being a good corporate citizen, involved in our community. We prioritize three areas of action:
Preservation of the environment.
We do everything we can to reduce the environmental impacts of all of our activities.
Creation of pleasant workspaces.
We seek to create spaces where diversity of values and lifestyles are recognized, and where everyone can proudly share their skills and abilities.
Building communities people want to live in.
We are an active member of the community, and act in different ways to contribute to the development of our surroundings.
Our commitments to our community
Every year, we support Centraide Estrie by taking part in their awareness campaign. Many of our employees make donations to this organization through automatic payroll deductions. To encourage employee participation, we also give out special prizes to donors in the company.
We are also involved on the CSMO Caoutchouc Board of Directors, whose mission it is to develop jobs in the rubber industry, to participate and collaborate in the training of a qualified workforce, and manage human resources efficiently.
We are also participants in Elastomer Valley, a cluster which aims to promote the elastomer industry products made in Quebec. Waterville TG participates actively in the sharing of knowledge, with the goal of having a positive impact on the industry. We are members of the Association des élastomères du Québec (AEQ), a cluster of businesses working in the rubber industry as suppliers, manufacturers, or transformers. This organization encourages networking, training, and technical exchanges.
For more than 30 years, Waterville TG has participated in the Maison régionale de l’industrie (MRI). The goal of this non-profit organization is to promote industrial development, obtain common services, and promote linkages among businesses.
Since 2007, Waterville TG has been an active member on the Board of Directors of the Fondation estrienne en environnement, which promotes environmental protection and sustainable development in the Eastern Townships region.
For several years now, we have participated in expert networks such as Maintenance and Reliability, Health and Safety and Sustainable Development at Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters. We take part in drafting guidelines dealing with the adoption of best practices in the industry.
Since 2004, we have been members of the Canadian Industry Program for Energy Conservation (CIPEC) which recommends best practices in energy management, and encourages reductions in the consumption of energy per unit of production, while improving economic return.
