Tepperman’s named finalist for its CSR efforts

Tepperman's ribbon cutting

HFA member Tepperman’s is a finalist for the Corporate Social Responsibility Award by the London (Ontario) Chamber of Commerce. The organization’s annual London Business Achievement Awards recognize business excellence in several categories.

Tepperman’s is recognized for its positive impact on the communities it serves and for tackling sustainability issues.

The nomination is “truly a wonderful honor,” says Andrew Tepperman, president of Tepperman’s. “We completely believe that our company’s sustainability is directly linked to the welfare of the communities where we operate, and we make it a business imperative to demonstrate best practices and lead through social impact.”

Zero-waste goal

From materials and energy use, to design, manufacturing processes and social responsibility, Tepperman’s sets stringent guidelines and ambitious goals to ensure it is energy self-sufficient. By reducing its ecological footprint, Tepperman’s commitments reflect its goal to become a zero-waste and socially responsible business. Some of these actions include:

  • reducing its energy consumption by 20 percent by 2025;
  • diverting 100 percent of waste from landfills with 401 tons of recycled materials annually;
  • implementing a full energy management system and audit;
  • providing customers with courtesy electric car-charging stations in every location;
  • collaborating with local charities to receive unwanted furniture from customers, thus extending products’ life cycle;
  • allocating discarded mattresses to a factory that recycles more than 90 percent of raw materials into new products.
