Corporate Social Responsibility

SNF Canada adheres to a strict policy of its parent SNF Group regarding sustainable development, environmental issues, and community involvement.

SNF Canada’s mission is to develop, produce and market polymers for water treatment, oil industry, mining, and paper industries while keeping environmental sustainability as one of our top priorities.

In all our activities, we are committed to minimizing pollution and waste. We are constantly improving our processes to ensure environmental impact is minimized. Processes that consume large quantities of water have been minimized, thus reducing specific water consumption sevenfold for each product in the span of 10 years. Rinse water used in production processes, for example, is partly recirculated to achieve a 70 % reduction in water consumption.

Our products also contribute to a safe and healthy environment by helping our customers treat waste, discharge clean effluent, and supply pure drinking water.

This is the first report of SNF Canada Ltd. (“SNF Canada”) under the Fighting Against Force Labour and Child Labour in Supply Chains Act (the “Act”). SNF Canada supports the objectives of the Act and is committed to supporting and implementing responsible and sustainable business practices. We are bound by and implement in Canada the policies and standards of business ethics and sustainability of the SNF Group, including as they relate to respect for human rights and the fight against all forms of modern slavery. This report sets out the information required by Act and affirms our plans to implement and further develop appropriate measures to combat forced and child labour in our supply chains.
