Sustainable Development Plan previous plan, which was in effect from 2010 to 2012. “Our 2010-2012 plan was a first for Cascades, and it has likely set a precedent within the industry,” explains Mario Plourde, President and Chief Ex- ecutive Officer of Cascades. “We are very proud of our accomplishments to date, and we are pleased to have the opportunity to incorporate the lessons we learned in our second plan, which is better adapted to our sector.”

Cascades revealed its three-year plan,

Among the most recent developments are: • A growing toolkit exclusively available to members to prove the “Value of Clean” to facility decision makers, which are show- cased in the ISSA Convention Seminars and at the ISSA Resource Center, Booth 2484, this week, as well as at

• The ISSA Clean Standard: K-12 re- leased in October to measure the effective- ness of cleaning in a critical facility type. ISSA explained how to use this new tool during seminars this week, which you can still take advantage of via the ISSA Conven- tion Seminar Premium Package, if you in- cluded that option when you registered.

Maintaining a leadership position in sustainable development With this renewed approach, Cascades hopes to strengthen its leadership posi- tion in respect to responsible business practices and focus its efforts on nine is- sues: energy, waste, water, sustainable procurement, innovation, financial per- formance, health and safety, employee mobilization, and community involve- ment. “This is a successful transition toward more tangible objectives that are better aligned with Cascades’ operational and financial orientations, and we look forward to meeting this new challenge,” adds Alain Lemaire, Executive Chairman
