SUSTAINABILITY

As a part of our commitment to pay more attention to what we do, Beaulieu Canada goes beyond functionality and product creation. Reaching new heights in sustainability means taking action for the near future, both for our social and environmental impact. We believe that by investing in our community and our people, we can reduce our ecological footpring.

At the heart of our philosophy is the belief that the environmental progress can only be achieved through rethinking our relationship with the world and contributing to the conservation of our natural environment. Beaulieu Canada is continually striving for greater efficiency from renewable resources, such as water, in order to reduce greenhouse gases as well as our carbon footprint. We reduce, recycle and reuse raw materials and waste to provide a better tomorrow for future generations.

Energy sources

We use hydroelectricity and natural gas as energy sources. To become more efficient and environmentally friendly, we are replacing the existing oversized boiler system with a peripheric boiler system in the finishing and tufting areas. We are also installing a new Make-Up air unit in the inspection area and adding radiant heating units in the manufacturing plant. This will reduce our natural gas emissions by nearly 70%.

Waste management

We have implemented plant-wide practices which redirect all cardboard, paper, plastic, metal, yarn, sheer lint and industrial wastes for reuse or recycling, keeping more than 80% of it from landfill.

Water consumption reduction

We have introduced a growing assortment of fashionable carpet styles manufactured with solution-dyed nylon in order to significantly reduce the water, chemicals and energy required in the usual carpet dyeing process and decrease our greenhouse gas emissions.

Electricity consumption

To reduce the energy consumption in our facilities, we are gradually replacing the fluorescent tube lighting fixtures with new LED-type fixtures.
