Simons Vision

Reducing Our Environmental Footprint

We're paying particular attention to decreasing our CO2 emissions and our water consumption. For several years now, we've been improving the contents of our assortment and making changes, aiming to reduce our environmental impact in regard to our distribution and infrastructure.

Since 2015 | Installation of LED lighting in all our new stores, reducing electricity consumption by 40%

50% reduction in carbon emissions related to shipping by shifting from road to rail transportation

2018 | Our Galeries de la Capitale store in Quebec City became the first net-zero energy consumption store in Canada, producing over 1 million kWH of solar energy annually, enough to power 50 homes

Supporting Environmental Causes

We regularly collaborate with organizations fighting to preserve the most precious things on Earth: plants and animals. Whether we're helping to protect tiny worker bees, huge polar mammals, or our vast Canadian landscapes, every cause that we support is one we hold close to our hearts.

Offering a Sustainable and Eco-Friendly Selection

The more seasons go by, the faster we evolve in developing eco-friendly products for our private labels. We are proud of the fashion that we make. We want to find the best green solutions for our materials and products, while always keeping the goal of reducing our environmental footprint in mind.
