Our Commitment to Environment

We ship products from around the world to homes across Canada. We make every effort to ensure that the manufacturing, transportation and storage activities are carried out in a sustainable and energy - efficient manner.

Recycling

Our facilities are equipped with recycling equipment to ensure we divert waste and conserve other resources. In our Brick division alone, we achieved an overall diversion rate of 76% in 2019, including 87% in our distribution centres. The Brick’s recycling efforts conserved the equivalent of 29,400 cubic yards of landfill airspace, 47,800 mature trees, 15.9 million kw-hours of electricity and 25.7 million gallons of water.

Vendor Performance Reviews

Our suppliers around the world report to us on their environmental impact, waste disposal and labour practices in accordance with our published code of vendor conduct.

Our Commitment to
Communities

We are proud to support a variety of local and national health associations, children’s charities, societies and foundations to continue to do the good work that they do for all of us across the country.

In 2019, we raised nearly $2.5 million for the Children’s Miracle Network for the benefit of children’s hospitals, medical research and community awareness. This donation exceeded our goal thanks to new fundraising events like our Charity Golf Tournament and Silent Auction, and our inaugural Charity Day which saw 2.5% of The Brick’s total sales on July 6, 2019 donated to the cause.

We also supported Wounded Warriors, a national mental health service provider focused on Canada’s veterans, first responders and their families.

Our Commitment to Responsible Governance

We have implemented governance policies to help ensure that we consider the needs of multiple stakeholder groups. The Board of Directors is comprised of a majority of independent directors, who periodically meet without management and non-independent members present. The Board has adopted a written Code of Conduct to guide the activities of all directors, officers and employees, and closely monitors compliance.
