An optimal program
To meet this target, we introduced the Materials Performance Improvement Program a number of years ago. Under the program, a multidisciplinary team continually seeks to improve work methods, optimize material use, and develop new manufacturing techniques to help get the most out of the resources and energy used.
100% recycled and recyclable cartons
In 2007 we replaced our white packing cartons with 100% recycled ones. Needless to say, our products are as high quality as ever, and they are just as well protected as before. What’s more, these new boxes are 100% recyclable themselves.
Less paper for a healthier planet
For a number of years now, we have considerably reduced the number of reports, faxes, and press releases we print thanks to better use of telecommunication tools like email. Daily use of Web tools, shared server links, and electronic newsletters has reduced paper consumption by 25%. New methods are continuously implemented in order to keep paper use to a minimum.
Using paper made of recycled materials
Since printing some documents is a necessary part of doing business, we use paper containing at least 30% recycled materials. This includes the envelopes, letterhead, brochures, and other documents we produce. The practice is an integral part of the Mirage philosophy.
