Our Commitment to Safety, Health, and the Environment
At CIL, we have a strong commitment to safety, health and the environment. The company strives to continually improve safety at all manufacturing distribution and office sites, in Canada and worldwide.
Our commitment to safety and health does not start and end with our employees, but is embodied in how we manufacture, warehouse distribute, and retail our products. Considerable effort is put into building a safety culture and improving systems upon which the safety of our people, the communities in which we operate and to YOU - the ultimate users of our paints and products - is an integral part of our culture.
At CIL we set increasingly challenging 5 year rolling Safety, Healy & the Environment programs and targets to meet and exceed in terms of VOC emissions, waste water reduction, raw material waste, excessive packaging and energy consumption. These programs are designed to deliver continuous improvement.
Safety, Health and the Environment are but one key part of our culture. Most recently CIL has expanded our focus to include product sustainability. CIL has a proud history of product sustainability and we incorporate these beliefs in the way that we bring products to market from conception to through the manufacturing, distributing, retailing, use and the products ultimate disposal of leftover paint. We are committed to the safe and responsible management of our products.
CIL has extended its commitment to product sustainability through the appointment of localized Product Stewards and aggressive internal compliance targets. Product sustainability is a core business practice. CIL incorporates this belief by being a proud sponsor, supporter and participant in provincial waste disposal programs across the country. CIL encourages the proper disposal of leftover paint and paint containers.
CIL Paints were also one of the first brands in Canada to remove harmful hazardous raw materials from our paints such as lead, cadmium, asbestos, mercury and formaldehyde decades ago.
