Care & Conserve “People + Planet: Reducing/Reusing/Recycling” Flyer – This two-page flyer provides six important sustainability questions for customers to consider when selecting a substrate provider. A “Product Life Cycle” diagram visually describes the importance of including best practices in sustainability throughout a product’s life cycle, i.e., cradle to grave. This flyer can be viewed and/or downloaded from Alcan Composites’ web site at CareConserve.pdf.

Care & Conserve Brochure – This four-page brochure describes Alcan Composites’ commitment to sustainability and demonstrates the company’s commitment to reduce/reuse/recycle through both an operations perspective and product perspective. It also describes the important role that customers can play in reducing waste and reusing product during the project design phase.

Operations: This brochure describes several sustainability initiatives within the company’s operations, including a program that allows customers to receive all order acknowledgements and invoices electronically, reducing paper consumption and delivery fuel expenditures.

Products: This brochure provides minimum recycle content used in the manufacturing of each of the company’s product lines. It also describes company supply chain directives that require all paper used to manufacture the company’s paper-faced foam boards and its resinated paper sheets for furniture be purchased from suppliers that participate in either the Sustainable Forestry Initiative or Forestry Stewardship Council.

Design Phase: A discussion of sustainability issues to be considered during the project design phase closes this Care & Conserve update. Project designers can play a vital role in reducing environmental impacts by following these tips for selecting Alcan Composites’ products.

This Care & Conserve brochure can be viewed and/or downloaded from Alcan Composites’ web site at AlcanCareConserve.pdf.
