Our Environmental / Local Purchasing Policy Policies
Le Cantlie Suites Hotel has developed this environmental purchasing policy to encourage the purchase and use of materials, products, and services that incorporate environmental, social, community, and performance goals.
Preference will be given to suppliers that meet robust third-party social and environmental certification criteria. Where reasonable, all significant suppliers should meet one or more of the following standards:
Certified B Corporation
Certified California Green Business
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Certified
Energy Star Certified
Other rigorous and independent third-party certifications will be considered on a case by case basis.
When price and quality are equal, preference will also be given to independent, woman, or minority-owned suppliers physically located within 150 miles of Le Cantlie Suites Hotel ’s location in Montreal.
Le Cantlie Suites Hotel actively reduces its need for ongoing consumables. Remaining purchases are evaluated for sustainability, such as paper materials (business cards, printer paper, envelopes, files, etc.) that meet one or more of the following criteria:
At least 50% post-consumer recycled material
At least 50% rapidly renewable materials
At least 50% materials harvested or extracted and processed within 500 miles
