Sustainability

DEMERS’ SUSTAINABLE APPROACH is made up of objectives for the sustainable development of the product we manufacture and our activities’ footprint. These objectives are based on performance indicators that enable us to more than just describe our achievements.

By developing more sustainable products, we also help our customers meet their own sustainable economic, environmental and social objectives.

Our management philosophy, our over 50 years of experience in vehicle modification and manufacturing and our ongoing research and development efforts are some of the strengths that enable us to manufacture ambulances that are increasingly respectful of the environment. We contribute tirelessly to building a better future on the environmental, social and economic fronts.

Objective: Optimize the recycling program

Demers has implemented a program to increase the rate of reuse for manufacturing waste from the production of ambulances and parts. Waste reuse has a direct impact on manufacturing costs and therefore on the price of ambulances.

In the plant, special recycling bins for plastic, aluminum, paper, and cardboard and wire were installed on the entire production line. For example, every month, we recover 1.5 metric tons of cardboard and paper alone.

The recycling program works in hand-in-hand with the reuse of manufacturing waste to reduce the amount of solid waste that is sent to the landfill. Our offices and all employees areas now feature recycle bins for paper and cardboard, bottles and cans.
