Tim Hortons reports on 2014 Sustainability and Responsibility Results


Tim Hortons reports on 2014 Sustainability and Responsibility Results. Tim Hortons has released its fifth annual Sustainability and Responsibility Report, highlighting the company’s 2014 performance results. The report continues to outline how Tim Hortons is Making a True Difference for individuals, communities and the planet.

“2014 was an important year for Tim Hortons, marked by continued progress towards our sustainability goals,” says Carol Patterson, Senior Director, Sustainability and Stakeholder Relations, Tim Hortons. “Together with our Restaurant Owners, we are proud of our contributions to the well-being of our guests, employees and the communities where we operate, as well as our efforts to reduce our impact on the environment.”

Key accomplishments in 2014 include:

  • Raised $11.8 million on Camp Day for the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation to support over 17,000 economically disadvantaged children to attend our camps.
  • Raised $5.3 million through the Smile Cookie program for over 500 local charities across Canada and the United States.
  • Introduced new better-for-you menu options, such as the Greek Yogurt Parfait with mixed berries and almond granola, as well as our Turkey Sausage Breakfast Sandwich.
  • Introduced Calorie Aware menu boards across Canada to highlight breakfast products under 350 calories.
  • Increased the number of farmers who participated in the Tim Hortons Coffee Partnership Projects to a total of 4,830 farmers.
  • Made a commitment to responsibly source palm oil, and mapped our supply chain for the palm oil we source in collaboration with our product manufacturers, suppliers and other partners as a first step in the development of a comprehensive palm oil sourcing policy.
  • Implemented energy saving measures in more than 200 Tim Hortons restaurants in Ontario, and achieved approximately four million kilowatt-hours in energy savings province-wide, which is comparable to the amount of electricity it would take to power about 420 homes for one year.

“Sustainability and responsibility remains a priority for us both now and into the future,” explains Patterson. “As we map the next phase of the Tim Hortons sustainability strategy, we maintain our commitment to making a true difference. Its significance is recognized in our brand vision: To be the fastest growing global restaurant brand, with the best people, proudly serving Canada’s favourite coffee while making a true difference in our communities.”
