Our Approach to Environmental Sustainability
Canadian Tire sees sustainability as more than just a green or marketing initiative, but rather as a business strategy that aligns benefits to our customers, our businesses and the environment. Our sustainability strategy focuses on innovation and aims to achieve productivity gains and economic benefits from enhanced environmental and social outcomes by integrating sustainability into business operations. By integrating sustainability practices into business operations, Canadian Tire serves its customers, communities, Dealers, employees and shareholders both now and for the future.
Our Company’s sustainability strategy has four imperatives:
- Optimize productivity: drive product and operations value chain improvements;
- Develop innovation: create and reinvent better processes, products and services;
- Enhance the brand: protect and enhance banner brands and corporate reputation; and
- Drive company engagement: engage employees through integration of sustainability practices into everyday business operations.
