What is sustainability?
From a business perspective, sustainability is defined as balancing the economic, social, and environmental impacts into core business strategy, operations, culture and decision-making.
The goal of this project is to take the current pulse of Canada's food and beverage manufacturing industry's sustainability efforts in order to provide companies with the knowledge and tools to enhance their business and sustainability performance and competitive advantage.
Your participation in this survey will provide us with valuable insight and help us:
- Determine the current status of food and beverage companies in terms of sustainability performance and implementation of sustainability practices;
- Identify the sustainability strategies and practices than can improve sustainability performance, reduce risk and create business value; and
- Determine the tools and support services that food and beverage processing companies will need to integrate sustainability into their business operations.
Please note that this survey focuses specifically on facility-level results. The survey should be completed by the individual(s) who are most familiar with their facility's strategy, policies, processes, and performance related to environmental, social, and economic sustainability. The ideal person to respond to this survey will vary among facilities (e.g., Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) Manager, Continuous Improvement Manager, Plant Manager, executive level Sustainability Champion, etc.). For sections in this survey that address business areas that you are less familiar with, we recommend that you collaborate with other members of your team to answer the questions.
We expect this survey will take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete. If you need to leave the survey before completion, simply close your browser. You can click on your unique URL at any time before 11:59 p.m. on November 15, 2014 and it will automatically bring you back to where you left off.
