Business Practices
MONTECRISTO consistently strives to improve and promote socially and environmentally responsible initiatives.

  • Annually, our in-office recycle program diverts approximately 54 cubic yards of materials from a landfill back into usage—the equivalent of 19,000 litres of water, 46 trees, or 11,000 kilowatts of electricity.
  • MONTECRISTO has incorporated Mohawk Options paper for use in the corporate office. Mohawk Options is 100 per cent FSC-certified paper and manufactured with renewable, non-polluting, wind-generated electricity.
