Our Social Responsibility Policy focus on seven areas:
We understand the importance of pursuing a fair trade with our suppliers and clients, we create value in what we do, we provide products, services and solutions, and contribute to communities.
Diversity is something we appreciate; a diverse work force brings new strength, skills and culture.
We purchase mostly from big and well known American and Canadians companies, their products are high quality, branded and certified. We work with some medium and small Canadian companies to introduce new products in the markets we target.
Our goal is being environmentally responsible, with what we do in our office and in the whole supply chain; we consolidate freight to our clients, we contribute with the education of our clients; we provide catalogs, magazines, newsletters, and scientific and technical information. We reuse and recycle package and office supplies, and reduce paper consumption.
All employees and service providers are expected to perform with high ethical principles and obey the law of the countries where they operate.
