Social Responsibility

At the Bodtker Group, we believe our business can and should have a positive impact on the environment and the communities in which we live and work.

We've promoted sustainable business practices throughout our organization and are committed to earning the trust and respect of our customers and employees by being responsible and doing things that are good for the planet and for each other. Looking after the well-being of our customers, employees and communities is at the core of our corporate social responsibility plan.

Reducing Our

Environmental

Impact

  • Environment

    Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.

    Each day in our plants and offices across Canada we're finding ways to minimize our environmental footprint. In 2011, we made environmental programs our focus and integrated them into our culture and business operations. Some of the ways we lessen our impact on the environment are:

    • Waste paint recycling
    • Antifreeze recycling
    • Collecting and recycling used oil
    • Scrap steel recycling
    • Air emissions testing
    • Paper, cardboard, plastic and stretch wrap recycling
    • Pallet recycling
    • Water recycling

    By installing timers on our warehouse heaters, we are saving energy by programming the start and end times. We also recycle all our pop cans and donate them to support local sports teams.

  • Community

    Supporting our local community groups and recycling programs to reduce our environmental footprint.

    At the Bodtker Group, we believe our business can and should have a positive impact in our communities. As good neighbours, we get involved with local efforts to bring people together and create positive change whenever we can. As we grow, so does our corporate social responsibility to make a positive impact on local communities. The opportunities to help in our communities are endless. Here are some of ours:

    • Volunteering at local food banks
    • Donating toiletries to homeless shelters with our Bodtker Group "Toilet Trees" fundraiser
    • Local food hamper donations
    • Annual Employee Christmas Bingo Charity Event with donations to local charities
    • Flood disaster relief - "Buckets of Love" bucket donations during 2013 flooding in Calgary and High River
    • Pancake breakfasts
    • Fundraising barbecues
