Students of today are the leaders of tomorrow. We have an opportunity to teach them right from wrong, good from bad and demonstrate by example how a vision can translate into action and make a difference in the world.
Big Companies can Make Big Differences
This ideology is the driver behind many decisions Kruger Products makes in terms of sustainability and corporate social responsibility. “We know that when we reduce our emissions by 15% or commit to a cause, we can make more of an impact than an individual choosing to reduce his emissions by 15% or donating to a cause,” says Steven Sage, VP Sustainability & Innovation Kruger Products. Making a difference is something that Kruger Products takes seriously, which is why it embarked on Sustainability 2015, it’s five-year journey to reduce its environmental impact, in the first place.
You may not have heard of Kruger Products L.P., but surely you’re familiar with the Sponge Pockets – men dressed in white puffy suits characterizing super absorbent pockets who appear in TV commercials ready to spring into superhero-like action to soak up spilled juice and wipe away dirty paw prints. Kruger Products is the company behind these quirky characters and the SpongeTowels® they represent, as well as other well-known brands including Cashmere®, Purex®, Scotties®, White Swan® and White Cloud®. Kruger Products is Canada’s leading manufacturer of tissue and paper products for household, commercial and industrial use.
Kruger Products’ has a long sustainability legacy. More than sixty years ago, when concern for the environment wasn’t even on most companies’ corporate radar, Kruger Products launched its first reforestation program and quietly helped set a new course for forest management. For Kruger Products, environmental stewardship is about identifying needs, seeing opportunities, and doing the right thing for business, for people and for the planet.
