TC Transcontinental named one of Canada’s Top 10 Corporate Citizens in the prestigious Corporate Knights 2019 Best 50 Ranking

TC Transcontinental (TSX: TCL.A TCL.B) is proud to be recognized as the 8th best corporate citizen in Canada in 2019 by the renowned Corporate Knights ranking. Named for the 16th year as one of Canada’s 50 best corporate citizens, TC Transcontinental climbed from the 29th position last year to the 8th position, which attests to the Corporation’s leadership and commitment to social responsibility. According to Corporate Knights, TC Transcontinental ranks among the Top 10 overall thanks namely to high clean revenue score, strong gender diversity at the board and executive levels, solid safety record, as well as strong energy and water productivity.

This recognition comes on the heels of TC Transcontinental taking a bold step in becoming the first Canadian-based manufacturer to join the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s New Plastics Economy Global Commitment. Among others, TC Transcontinental has pledged, by 2025, for 100% of its plastic packaging to be reusable, recyclable, or compostable.

“TC Transcontinental is pleased to have reached a coveted spot among Corporate Knights’ Top 10 best corporate citizens in Canada,” said François Olivier, President and Chief Executive Officer of TC Transcontinental. “Throughout our transformation, we continue to be driven by our unwavering commitment towards sustainability while pursuing our business activities responsibly for the benefit of our people, our customers, our shareholders and our communities today, as well as for the generations to come. Over the years, TC Transcontinental has been an important player in the creation of a circular economy for paper in Canada. As a leader in flexible packaging in North America, we now intend to lead the way in the creation of a circular economy for plastic, in order to ensure the transition into a model where plastic is better managed from sourcing to end-of-life. We will benefit from a collaborative approach involving all stakeholders.”
