Cascades named one of Canada's Greenest Employers



    KINGSEY FALLS, QC, April 21 /CNW Telbec/ - Cascades is proud to have
attained the ranks of Canada's Greenest Employers in 2009. This recognition by
Mediacorp (also the publisher of Canada's Top 100 Employers - one of them
Cascades), is given to employers that blend environmental values into their
corporate culture and demonstrate initiative in this area.
    Cascades was named a recipient of this award following the panel's
analysis of its earth-friendly initiatives. The key reasons for designating
Cascades one of Canada's greenest employers are: its status as the country's
largest old papers recoverer; the chlorine-free process it uses when producing
tissue and fine papers; its use of biogas to meet its energy needs; its
Cascades Eco-Hero contest, intended to recognize an employee who takes
concrete steps to protect the environment in his or her day-to-day life; and
the Company's support of various environmental organizations, such as Earth
Day.
    "This recognition once again confirms Cascades' status as a leader in
sustainable development and, more specifically, environmental friendliness and
human resources," stated Maryse Fernet, Vice-President, Human Resources at
Cascades.
    "For the past 45 years, Cascades has shown that a creative business is
capable of combining its economic interests with environment-friendly
measures," pointed out Léon Marineau, Vice-President, Environment at Cascades.

    Launched in 2007, the list recognizing Canada's Greenest Employers is
compiled by Mediacorp, the nation's largest publisher of guides and
periodicals intended for job-seekers, and creator of the Canada's Top 100
Employers initiative.

    Founded in 1964, Cascades produces, converts and markets packaging and
tissue products composed mainly of recycled fibres. The company employs close
to 13,000 men and women who work in more than 100 modern and flexible
production units located in North America and Europe. Cascades' management
philosophy, its 45 years of experience in recycling and its continued research
and development efforts are strengths that enable it to create innovative
products for its customers. Cascades' shares trade on the Toronto Stock
Exchange under the ticker symbol CAS.
