Quadient Canada and Bullfrog Power®
Quadient Canada is proud to partner with Bullfrog Power® to help you support your environmental initiatives. Bullfrog Power’s vision is to be Canada’s source for smarter, greener energy solutions. Bullfrog's mission is to inspire and empower people to lead the way to a renewably powered future. Over 1.3 million tonnes of CO2, which is the equivalent of 150 million gallons of gasoline emissions has been displaced by the bullfrog community since 2005.
Every new Quadient postage meter is automatically Bullfrog powered with 100% clean, pollution-free electricity for the duration of the agreement.
You put green energy back into the power grid when you use a Quadient postage meter to send your letters and parcels, reducing the carbon footprint of your business while supporting the growth of renewable energy in Canada.
Limit the environmental impact of our sites
Quadient Canada is not only a Bullfrog partner, we are also a Bullfrog community member. Our corporate headquarters in Toronto and all of our branch offices located across the country are powered by Bullfrog green energy, helping bring Canada closer to a renewably powered future.
All the sites of our supply chain are ISO 14001 certified (including our Tier 1 suppliers). This approach means that each site has deployed an environmental management system to identify their most significant environmental impacts. Actions are taken accordingly to eliminate, reduce or limit their effects on the environment. Our main efforts cover water and electricity consumption management as well as the reduction and the collection of waste.
Among the other sites of our company, those having the most important headcounts are also certified. Nonetheless, environmental objectives are set for all Quadient sites.
Limit the environmental impact of our products and solutions
The preservation of the environment is also about reducing the impact that our products and solutions may have. Our eco-design approach aims at enhancing energy efficiency and the recyclability of our products.
Quadient is also a committed player in the circular economy through its remanufacturing approach. It is an industrial process during which a used product is collected to be renewed and updated in terms of its functionalities. It offers the same level of quality and reliability as a new product while reducing its carbon footprint by 37%.
Evaluate our carbon footprint
Every year Quadient measures its carbon footprint according to the GHG protocol methodology, with the results being published in our Registration Document. These results take into account all the emissions linked to the energy consumption on our sites (scope 1 and 2), business trips of our employees, and downstream and upstream goods that are transported (scope 3). Emissions linked to the energy consumption of our products when used by our customers are also taken into account.
