Building a Better Tomorrow Today
At CFS, we relentlessly strive to maintain and continually improve our manufacturing and business management systems every day to build a better tomorrow for our company, customers, and the world around us.
To achieve this, we take a Hoshin Kanri approach by having stringent policies, procedures, and measurements in place at every level within the company to drive progress and action towards this overall goal. This keeps our entire team focused on contributing to best practices, while ensuring we are compliant with federal, provincial, and local laws pertaining to our operations, environmental impact, and health and safety.
Business Operations & Environment Impact
We are committed to managing environmental matters as an integral part of our business by endeavoring to manage all aspects that have or may have an impact on the environment by adhering to our Environmental Management System (EMS) and the following principles:
We will comply with all relevant environmental legislation and regulations, and with other requirements to which the organization subscribes. We will protect the environment by striving to continuously improve our processes to minimize waste pollution.
Risk Reduction, Prevention, Resource Management
We will seek opportunities, beyond regulatory compliance requirements to reduce our impact on the environment. We will strive to minimize releases to the air, land and water. We will minimize the amounts and toxicity of wastes generated and will ensure that wastes are safely and legally disposed. We will investigate recycling and waste minimization options where applicable. We will manage resources such as water, energy, land and forest, in an environmentally sensitive manner.
This policy will be communicated to all employees and made available to all stakeholders. It is intended to provide the framework for setting and reviewing environmental targets and continuous improvement objectives. We will ensure that our EMS is appropriate to the nature, scale and environmental impacts of this facility and will review it periodically to ensure that it continues to be current and meets all requirements.

To support our commitment to continuous improvement, we:
