COMMITTED AND INVESTED
Environmental commitment is only one of Trèd’si’s many efforts to enhance its corporate culture of sustainable development. Economic and social issues also play a key role in the sawmill’s activities.
Trèd’si is particularly concerned about providing its employees with a safe and healthy workplace. Employees are an instrumental part of the business and are included in decision-making whenever possible. Trèd’si is also active within the community through the support it provides to individuals and organizations such as the Sentiers de l’Estrie, for example by contributing to the creation of hiking trails to highlight regional wildlife and plant life.
As the leader in the field of treated wood recovery, Trèd’si is continuously spearheading innovation by investing in research and development to keep abreast of emerging needs.
Among other projects, Trèd’si is actively involved with the Institut de recherche en biologie végétale (IRVB) in the context of studies on soil decontamination through the planting of fast-growing trees such as willow trees and hybrid poplars.
Certificate of approval issued by the Ministry of Sustainable Development, Environment, and Fight Against Climate Change (MSDEFACC).
Trèd’si also holds the certification
"On s’engage en développement durable" (committed to sustainable development)
issued by the ADDERE consulting firm. This certification recognizes the formal commitment of an organization to incorporate a sustainable development management approach and to strive to continuously address specific known challenges.
In addition, Trèd’si is firmly committed to complying with the principles of the “charte environnementale Estrie zone verte” (Estrie green zone environmental charter) of the Conseil Régional de l’Environnement de l’Estrie (CREE).
RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS
The company has recently perfected a high-performance mobile unit to process contaminated water. This unit makes it possible, among other things, to eliminate contaminants in storm water before discharging it back into the environment in a purified, healthy state.
In addition to overcoming new challenges, the new corporate branch Trèt’ô is destined to become a key player in the implementation of innovative solutions to environmental issues related to contaminated water.
