Going GreenCycling to work
Our responsibility to our community begins at our offices. As you might expect, cycling to work has always been encouraged, and our offices are equipped with indoor bicycle storage, shower facilities and a gym with lockers. This encourages fitness, reduces carbon emissions, and promotes the sport and lifestyle of cycling.Carbon fiber recycling
Until recently, carbon fibre has been difficult and expensive to recycle. Unlike metals such as aluminium, carbon fibre can’t be melted, as it needs to be separated from other composite materials first. That’s why we’re working with a partner who recycles our scrap carbon products. The company is committed to recycling carbon frames in an environmentally safe and responsible manner, and to either reuse or recycle all corrugated packaging and pallets.
We also repair and refurbish our frames for donation purposes.Our head offices
We’ve integrated several innovative and environmentally-friendly technologies, with Bullfrog Power, Canada’s 100% green energy provider, powering Cervélo’s head office in Toronto. We recycle our paper, glass, plastic and aluminium waste whenever possible, and make sure we only buy paper supplies made from recycled materials. At the same time, we are always looking out for more opportunities to reduce paper usage, for example, by providing electronic pay stubs to our employees.
