As part of its three-pillar sustainability strategy—help customers reduce their environmental footprint, support its associates and communities, and reduce the environmental impact of its operations—Lowe’s Canada has implemented a number of initiatives over the past few years, including: a major project to improve the energy efficiency of its facilities, the phasing out of single-use plastic shopping bags in stores starting at the end of June, and the development of tracking tools to ensure that its ambitious recycling targets are met. In 2022, the organization’s environmental efforts and results were recognized nationally, as well as in Québec. The company was named one of Canada’s Greenest Employers for a second consecutive year and received a 10th Leader in Sustainability Award by Call2Recycle, as well as the Stratégie de développement durable Desjardins Mercure Award at Les Mercuriades 2022 Gala.
