Sustainability Goals

As TC Transcontinental continues its transformation, we remain committed to maintaining our leadership in corporate social responsibility by ensuring that we pursue all our business activities in a responsible manner.

TC Transcontinental shares the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s common vision of a circular economy for plastic, where plastic never becomes waste. Therefore, we are proud signatories of the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment and have committed, by 2025, for 100% of our plastic packaging to be reusable, recyclable or compostable, on top of achieving a 10% use of post consumer recycled content on average by weight, across all plastics in our product basket.
