Corporate Responsibility

At VISO, we pride ourselves on our commitment, not only to exceptional lighting design and manufacturing, but also to the Environment and to Corporate Social Responsibility. Our goal is to leave a positive impact in every environment we work in.

LED

VISO complies with all environmental standards. Most of our custom fixtures are made with LEDs and all of our Brand Collection fixtures are LED compatible. Additionally, we have been certified with Energy Star as a result of our work with LEDs.

WASTE REDUCTION PROGRAM

We recycle waste such as cardboard, paper, and plastic. We focus on continuous improvement and we work towards zero waste in our manufacturing and office facilities.

ENVIRONMENTAL GOALS

Our goal is to continue our focus on achieving a green supply chain. We believe in reducing our carbon footprint by recycling and by holding others accountable to sustainable objectives. Looking forward, we will keep sustainability in mind when designing and manufacturing without sacrificing quality and aesthetic design. We are continuing our implementation of the ISO 9000 quality management system, which reduces unnecessary steps and materials in our production process and increases the overall sustainability of our products.

STAKEHOLDER ENGAGEMENT

At VISO, the principle of continuous improvement is vital to our process. We consider all employees, staff, partners, clients and end-users to be stakeholders of the business. Together we work towards complete quality and transparency in our operations to produce and distribute amazing products and we uphold our suppliers and raw material providers to the same standards. Every box we use is made from 100% recyclable materials. Our skids are either fumigated or plastic which allows us to reuse them for long periods of time.

SOCIAL EQUITY

A core strategy of VISO is to be diverse in our hiring and cultivate an environment of acceptance and love. At VISO, you will find the most diverse environment, which is what makes us so strong as a company. Our team members are from all walks of life and all parts of the world, which reflects our home city of Toronto. We don’t believe in inclusion because we don’t believe in exclusion. We are fascinated by our differences and it is our differences that makes up our creative culture. Our leaders, lead equitably by a male and female, set an example for the whole team that no matter what, we are all in this together, regardless of race, sex, gender, age, colour. 55% of our workforce is comprise of women in a technical field and in high level positions. We also focus on creating a diverse supply chain. We promote individual and collective successes and we promote learning from each other as we bring our individually unique characteristics to our jobs. We exercise a lot of listening and consideration and are fully committed to continue on a path of diversity and social equity.
